The Stranger By Harlan Coben – Book Review #3
I can’t really say much about The Stranger without giving away the story. I will say that I spent a lovely, relaxing weekend reading this book. It was hard to put it down and I was grateful when both Kaycee and Ella asked if they could sleep over at their friend’s houses because it meant I could read in peace!
Here’s the blurb from Goodreads:
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. 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.
I don’t usually read the acknowledgements in books but for some reason, I read them today. I was very happy to read that people can make donations to charities in return for Harlan to use their name as a character in one of his books.
This is a great idea and if I could afford it, I’d love to have my name as one of his characters! If you’re interested, it says on the Harlan Coben website that you can write to email@example.com
