APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Bestselling thriller writer Harlan Coben sure knows how to sink his claws in. The opening scenes of Fool Me Once are nail-biting and explosive. Former Army pilot Maya has just buried her husband, Joe, but her grief is tainted by suspicion, anger and anxiety for her two-year-old daughter. Meanwhile, Maya remains a suspect in Joe’s murder. Coben artfully drops bits and pieces of information, keeping us guessing at the truth. He tempers the suspense with moving portraits of Maya’s sustaining relationships.
In his new thriller, a seemingly unsolvable puzzle isn't so unsolvable. Two weeks after witnessing her husband, Joe, murdered in Central Park, retired special-ops Army Captain Maya Stern consults her newly installed nanny cam and sees Joe enter their living room with their two-year-old daughter. Is it possible Joe survived? Is she losing her mind? Is someone trying to fool her? (The title gives that last one away.) The question becomes, who's trying to fool her, and why? Reader LaVoy does a masterly job of ginning up genuine suspense and adding much-needed heft to characters so gossamer they threaten to blow off the page. The author did make his protagonist, Maya, fully dimensional, but it's LaVoy's impassioned enactment of her trials and tribulations that makes the listener care what happens to her. A Dutton hardcover.
Another thoroughly brilliant book by HC! I had a guy in working on my home today - no WiFi and no TV. No problem I couldn’t put this book down until I’d finished it! Highly recommend it.
Average. I expected more from H. C.
Another great book by Harlan Coben, he has really sparked my passion for reading with his clever mysteries and piecing together pieces of information!
Would highly recommend!b
