LoveReading Expert Review of Fool Me Once

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.

Fool Me Once Synopsis

The master of the double-twist. (The Times). If your husband was murdered, And you were a witness, How do you explain seeing him on your nanny cam? You thought you trusted him. Now you can't even trust yourself. Dark secrets and a terrifying hunt for the truth lie at the heart of this gripping new thriller. To find the answer, Maya must finally come to terms with deep secrets and deceit in her own past before she can face the unbelievable truth about her husband - and herself.

  • Pam Kennedy - 'Very, very good.  Coben is a great writer.'
  • Natasha Motton - 'Another corker from master crime writer Coben!'
  • Reba Khatun - 'Fool me once is what I describe as an edge-of-my-seat book. The suspense had me racing through the book and holding my breath at times.'
  • Suzanne Marsh - 'What I like about Harlan Coben is that he always builds dark secrets and a terrifying hunt for the truth.'
  • Edel Waugh - 'The story is written beautifully with a smart driven female as the main character...impossible to put down...you are going to love this standalone book that has a terrific ending that will leave you gob smacked.'
  • Joan Sidwell - 'It is well written and researched and totally addictive, a book that leaves you breathless at the end of it, all I would say is just read it.'
  • Sue Pledger - 'Excellent as always...Thoroughly enjoyed this book. More please.'
  • Debbie Patrick - 'Quite a good book, well written, but I found it a quick read, which didn’t flesh out the characters quite as much as I would have liked.'
  • Nicola Underwood - 'Harlan Coben has done it again with this fast paced thriller.'
  • Clare Turner - 'Classic Coben - fast-paced, tightly plotted and utterly gripping. Great easy entertainment...A terrific read – I devoured it in the course of a day, with great pleasure.'
  • Alan Brown - 'A book that keeps the reader on edge and twisted as soon as the first scene is set up to the very end of this thriller.'
  • Tanya Thurling - 'This is such a good book!  I'm usually pretty good at guessing what's going to happen, but the twists in this book had me shocked and I did not see that ending coming at all!'
  • Evelyn Love-Gajardo - 'I have read and enjoyed quite a few of Harlan Coben's books in the past but this one just didn't do it for me.'
  • Beth Winsor - 'I enjoyed reading this but was not really convinced by the characters or the story, especially the war scenes.'
  • Chris Bertenshaw - 'Wildly entertaining thriller about a widow who sees her dead husband on their nanny cam. My first Coben thriller, and I'll be looking out for more!'
  • Phylippa Smithson - 'Not the best from this usually very reliable writer of thrillers but still readable.'
