Reviews

  • "…adorned with that peerless brand of storytelling he always provides."

    The Independent
  • "Fool Me Once is a perfect example of what makes his work so appealing… When you're writing a story full of twists, nothing is ever the way it seems, and Coben is brilliant in the way he reminds you of this with small references to ambiguities, to yin and yang, things like the opposite interpretations of the Second Amendment, to a school overlooking a graveyard, or receiving lines at weddings and funerals. Reminders that things have different meanings at different times. I won't give away any spoilers, but the climax of the story not only ties things together, but does it in a way that is chilling and maybe darker than anything I've read from Coben…[There is a] brilliant finish."
