Not usual Harlan Coben

Yes


If you’ve listened to books by Harlan Coben before, how does this one compare?

DIsappointing


What about January LaVoy’s performance did you like?

She reads well in a way that makes no difference whether she is a man or a woman


Was Fool Me Once worth the listening time?

Up to a point


Any additional comments?

I was disappointed. I usually like HC's books a lot but I could not care about this woman. I don't like characters who continually refuse to answer others' questions or explain themselves. I did enjoy the reference to Win Lockwood from the Myron Bolitar books

Unraveling instead of reveling


The first female main character in a Harlan Coben is a bit of a cheat, apart from being described as female all else in her life is basically a male action hero prototype, military helicopter pilot, ptsd, gun fanatic, ace shooter and a loner that asks for no help and explains very little.

She is frequently complimented on her beauty but she shows no interest in any of the male characters except for a very brief description of how she met her husband.

Do not expect to discover, or figure out the secret because you do not have all the cards Mr Coben is holding the entire deck. The other thing this is not even remotely is a procedural, it has the most ridiculous lineup of suspects in a precinct I have ever experienced in writing or movie, very much unacceptable at his level of writing or writer.

If you read it fast and ask no questions or think for too long you may get some enjoyment out of this story otherwise not good enough.
