Harlan Coben’s Fool Me Once has been released on Netflix and it stars some famous faces you’ll probably recognise.

The American author has an array of novels and other TV series related to his stories such as The Stranger and Stay Close.

Fool Me Once sees a widow, Maya Stern, getting to grips with living without her husband Joe who was murdered but she finds evidence that he could still be alive.

A “nanny cam” set up by Maya reveals her husband is in the footage, despite her believing he is dead, reports the Radio Times.

He might not be alive though as Harlen Coben’s stories often have “double twists”, the Radio Times adds.
