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.
This is one of those times where I’m not sure whether I should thank the person who recommended Harlan Coben to me or yell at them. Since it was my daughter, I guess I’ll cut her some slack. 😀
Seriously, after only reading two books by this author and I’ve already realized that you can’t second guess or predict or even try to figure out where the story’s going. I figured that out after reading Hold Tight – that opinion was reinforced after reading Fool Me Once.
Unfortunately, because of the twists, turns and total craziness that’s centered around Maya and the secrets from her past – kept by both her and others – I can’t say too much. Just know that nothing is quite what it seems and it’s really hard to know who to trust.
I might be a gluten for punishment, but I’ve got a couple more Harlan Coben books on my TBR list. I might need a break from all this intense suspense for a little while though, but I’m sure it won’t be long before I pick the next one up. 😉
