#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.

The narrator is very good. The story develops well, you want to hear what happens next. One problem was that the narrator moved from one chapter to the other without pausing, so i got lost a couple of times. Overall enjoyed it.
I've read several of Harlan Cobins books in the past and haven't enjoyed them as much as " The Stranger".
There was never a time in the book when I felt that I knew how the story would end. Every time I felt that I might be close, the story zinged or zagged in another direction.
By the end of the book I knew that I had been on an exciting trip and that I finally knew all the ins and outs of the story.
As a side note, I really enjoyed the reading of this book. Will look forward to listening to another book read by him.
