An outrageously stunning read, that takes a tight hold from the outset and continues to squeeze until the shockingly intense end. Maya, a former Army Captain, finds herself caught up in a nightmare scenario after her husband is gunned down and events start to spiral out of control. Harlan Coben writes with a masterly hand, descriptions shot straight into my minds eye and the tale continued to twist and writhe with intrigue. Powerful and addictive, clever and memorable, ‘Fool Me Once’ is a brilliantly escapist read, the story whips along, and I just had to read it in one sitting.

'...adorned with that peerless brand of storytelling he always provides.' The Independent
'Fool Me Once is a perfect example of what makes his work so appealing... When you're writing a story full of twists, nothing is ever the way it seems, and Coben is brilliant in the way he reminds you of this with small references to ambiguities, to yin and yang, things like the opposite interpretations of the Second Amendment, to a school overlooking a graveyard, or receiving lines at weddings and funerals. Reminders that things have different meanings at different times. I won't give away any spoilers, but the climax of the story not only ties things together, but does it in a way that is chilling and maybe darker than anything I've read from Coben...[There is a] brilliant finish.' Irresistible Targets
'Coben excels in thrillers about families torn apart by secrets...Typically twisty read with customary Coben shock ending.' The Sun
'This slick thriller examines what you can believe and who you ever really trust... Coben has excelled himself. This intense and multi-layered story has a very creepy conspiracy. Exciting, poignant and insanely readable.' Sunday Mirror
'Coben hits the bull's eye again with a tale guaranteed to fool even the craftiest readers a lot more than once.' Kirkus
'Coben is like a skilled magician saving the best, most stunning trick for the very end.' Publishers Weekly
