The Stranger

Harlan Coben

The Stranger appears out of nowhere, perhaps in a bar, or a parking lot, or at the grocery store. His identity is unknown. His motives are unclear. His information is undeniable. Then he whispers a few words in your ear and disappears, leaving you picking up the pieces of your shattered world.

Adam Price has a lot to lose: a comfortable marriage to a beautiful woman, two wonderful sons, and all the trappings of the American Dream: a big house, a good job, a seemingly perfect life.

Then he runs into the Stranger. When he learns a devastating secret about his wife, Corinne, he confronts her, and the mirage of perfection disappears as if it never existed at all. Soon Adam finds himself tangled in something far darker than even Corinne’s deception, and realizes that if he doesn’t make exactly the right moves, the conspiracy he’s stumbled into will not only ruin lives—it will end them. (from Netgalley)

My Thoughts
Adam Price is approached by a stranger who tells him a secret - a secret that could ruin Adam’s marriage. Who is this stranger and how did he learn the secret?

I look forward to new Harlan Coben novels like a kid waiting for Santa Claus on Christmas Eve. I just know I’m going to get something good and The Stranger was just what I was hopinh for.

Mr. Coben has a knack for taking normal. everyday people and putting them in very tricky situations where they have no option but to rely on their own wits and intelligence. This book went right down to the last page with the suspense. As always with this author, a very enjoyable read.

Thank you to Penguin Group - Dutton, via Netgalley - for allowing me to read this in exchange for an unbiased review.
