Fool Me Once by Harlan Coben

On April 11, 2016

By Sophia Whitfield

A gripping new thriller with Maya Stern, a dynamic female protagonist at its heart.

When Stern’s husband is murdered in front of her, she embarks on a mission to find her husband’s killer. Trained in the military, Maya Stern is no stranger to danger.

A former army helicopter pilot she now teaches at a local airport after an incident that threw her career into disarray. Since leaving the army her focus is her two-year-old daughter Lily and she sets up a nanny cam to watch her daughter while a nanny is caring her for.

When Maya plays back the video she sees her dead husband Joe appear on the screen, playing with their daughter. She thinks perhaps she is hallucinating, a state of her grief, or could Joe really still be alive?

Questions are starting to be asked by the police. Maya’s sister Claire was murdered and now her husband. Does death really follow her as her brother in law suggests?

Maya is determined to find the truth behind the death of her loved ones. In the hunt for justice Maya’s past catches up with her leaving her vulnerable.

The film rights for this book have already been picked up with Julia Roberts set to play the feisty lead, Maya Stern. It’s hard to imagine anyone more suitable playing this character.

Set aside a weekend to read this book. You won’t be able to put it down. Read the book here before you see the movie starring Julia Roberts.
