Description

#1 New York Times bestselling master of suspense Harlan Coben delivers his most shocking thriller yet, proving that a well-placed lie can help build a wonderful life—and a secret has the same explosive power to destroy it.
 
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 Publishers Weekly

Feb 09, 2015 – Bestseller Coben (Missing You) continues to turn out thrillers that put highly original spins on a current trend or problem, and while this standalone lacks the nail-biting suspense of his best, it's clever enough to be thoroughly entertaining. Adam Price, wife Corinne, and sons Ryan and Thomas are living the suburban dream in Cedarfield, N.J. Then, at a bar in Cedarfield's American Legion Hall, a man known only as the stranger reveals to Adam a secret of Corinne's that shatters the dream and causes Corinne to disappear. The stranger similarly imparts devastating secrets to Heidi Dann, a middle-aged woman with a family in Beachwood, Ohio, and Michaela Siegel, a medical student in New York City. Price shifts his search efforts from Corrine to the stranger, who is also being pursued by some extremely nasty characters. Lives and reputations are lost along the way. Even when not at his best, Coben is very good, and readers won't be disappointed.

Fast Paced Suspense

The Stranger was fun to read, and really kept me guessing. Adam Price was a character I really liked, as well as his two sons, Thomas and Ryan. I was quickly caught up in the story, and found it a very quick one to read. While it wasn't one of my favorites by Coben, I enjoyed reading it and liked the story.

Adam Price, attorney, believes he is a happily married father of two. When some shocking secrets come to light, he realizes that his life is not as he thought. After he confronts his wife with her lies, she refuses to tell him the complete story, and then disappears. As her disappearance soon seems to be connected to a couple of murders, Adam tries to unravel what she was involved with, while trying to find her.

Although I don't think this was among the best by Coben, I am glad I read it. I thought Adam was a great character, and I enjoyed reading his story, even though I found some of the plot implausible. The story was fast paced and full of action.
