Fool Me Once
"Things can always be said later, but things can never be unheard." ~ 50%
Death seems to follow Maya. The former special ops pilot, home from war, buried her husband Joe three days after his murder. Not long before that, she buried her sister who was also murdered. Then thanks to a nanny cam, she sees an impossible image of her dead husband playing with their two-year-old daughter. Is her mind playing tricks? Is she grieving so hard that she sees things that she so desperately wishes were true? Left with a mind full of questions, she puts her intelligence and expert markswoman skills to use finding answers.
There are few authors that I will add their new releases to my TBR without having read a description first. It doesn't matter what the book is about; it's by so-and-so, I'll no doubt like it. Authors that I am honored to read their advance copies for my honest review. Harlan Coben is one of these few authors I speak of.
Edge-of-your-seat mysteries are what I like to read most. I like to be shocked throughout the book and thrown for a loop at the ending. The suspense in Fool Me Once builds steadily and then WHAM! I knew but I didn't know; Fool Me Once fooled me. Coben's descriptive writing makes readers feel as if they are watching a movie as the plot unfolds. I recommend Fool Me Once for bookhearts looking to read a suspense mystery and for book clubs looking to read something out of their norm.
Happy Pub Day, Harlan Coben! Fool Me Once is available today.
