As a one time Special Ops Pilot, Maya is doing the best she can since the brutal murder of her husband Joe two weeks prior. When a friend offers her a nanny cam disguised as a digital photo frame to keep an eye on her 2-year-old daughter to help Maya’s peace of mind, Maya feels it is unnecessary but accepts the gift. When Maya watches the recording on the cam one day she sees something that sends chills through her bones…. she sees her daughter playing and laughing with a man; but not just any man. She sees her daughter playing with her deceased husband.
I am a big fan of Harlan Coben and have read every book he has written. I was so excited to see Fool Me Once as I was scrolling through audio books to choose from. Harlan is always good for a thriller that is never over the top and has always left me waiting for the next one.
I enjoyed Fool Me Once, narrated by January Lavoy who I have enjoyed listening to before. Her amazing voice at moments made she smile, she has such a grasp on what the story is and takes such ownership in it you can hear the moments of panic, fear, and joy in the characters.
Once again I applaud Harlan Coben for creating a great thriller that had me guessing to the end, and still shocked me.
What’s next Harlan? What is next?

First of all, I had the opportunity to see him in person a couple of weeks ago. It was his only Northern California appearance. I had already seen him live several times. But it never gets old. He is great.
Besides that, Fool Me Once is my favorite standalone by him. I gave it a 4/4. I reviewed it last month and posted a separate blog for his appearance at Book Passage.
Rather than resting on his laurels, he seems to get better with each book.
I used to read everything by Coben, but it’s been several years since I’ve picked up one of his thrillers. This sounds like winner, especially if it kept you guessing until the very end. Adding it to my Audible list. Thanks!
