Fool Me Once

Finished Fool Me Once by Harlan Coben.  I received a copy from the publisher for review.

Summary (from Goodreads):

#1 New York Times bestseller Harlan Coben delivers his next impossible-to-put-down thriller.
In the course of eight consecutive #1 New York Times bestsellers, millions of readers have discovered Harlan Coben’s page-turning thrillers, filled with his trademark edge-of-your-seat suspense and gut-wrenching emotion. In Fool Me Once, Coben once again outdoes himself.

Former special ops pilot Maya, home from the war, sees an unthinkable image captured by her nanny cam while she is at work: her two-year-old daughter playing with Maya’s husband, Joe—who had been brutally murdered two weeks earlier. The provocative question at the heart of the mystery: Can you believe everything you see with your own eyes, even when you desperately want to? 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.”

As you know if you’ve visited my blog for more than, say, a year, I am a huge fan of Harlan Coben.  His book releases are always among my literary highlights of the year (especially now that they’re so close to my birthday).  His novels’ basic premise always seem so outlandish, but when you read his book, they always seem so completely plausible, and it always freaks me out.  This time especially—what do you do when you see someone you think is dead?  Especially when you actually KNOW they’re dead because you were just at the funeral?

Which leads to more questions—what do you actually know? Who would hate you this much, because no matter what the explanation, it means someone hates you.  And who can you trust?

Basically so many questions.  And Harlan Coben always has the answers, and they are waiting at the end of a crazy-wild ride.

Highly recommended.
