Fool Me Once; Harlan Coben
Brilliant Audio - 2016
In this stand alone Coben thriller Maya Stern is a former Special Ops pilot suffering from PTSD. She is also a grieving widow, her husband Joe was brutally murdered a few weeks earlier. To ease her stress where her two-year old daughter is concerned, she discreetly installs a nanny cam to monitor the happenings of her daughter and the caregiver while she is away. Soon after Maya sees what appears to be her dead husband sitting on the sofa with their daughter. Are her eyes playing tricks on her or, is Joe still alive? After all, she never saw his body after he was supposedly murdered.
Fool Me Once was a very good thriller that held my interest all the way to the end, and it even managed to surprise me. Maya is a spunky character who was fearless and determined to find out what was really going on. The audio version was read by January LaVoy who did a very good job. I also had the eGalley so I was able to read as well as listen. Readers who enjoy a good thriller should give this one a try.
