I really enjoyed this standalone by Harlan Coben. I hadn’t read much of his work until a half a dozen years ago but he’s become a favourite and with about 30 books published (as well as some television series under his belt) he’s proved he’s consistent and a reliable choice when it comes to entertaining reading fodder.
I’m a fairly new lover of Harlan Coben’s books, not really reading the American author’s work until a few years ago. Although I didn’t LOVE love his 2016 novel, Fool Me Once, his long and much-lauded career is an indication that he consistently produces quality work and his latest novel is no different.
In fact, although I wanted the mystery at hand to be resolved, I kinda didn’t want the book to finish and I suspect that’s a combination of the great characters on offer and an addictive plot.
I’m always excited to see new releases from my favourite authors so the arrival of Fool Me Once by Harlan Coben was a cause for celebration – and for some shuffling of my ‘TBR’ list so I could get to it as soon as possible.
And although it’s a great read – as Coben’s novels always are – I was a tad disappointed by what eventuated this time around.
Harlan Coben’s a writer with 27 novels under his belt, delivering thrillers that offer readers complex plots and a maze of false leads. His latest novel, The Stranger, is—fortunately— no different.
