The Stranger by Harlan Coben

One sentence from a stranger is all it took to start unravelling Adams life. A secret was revealed that starts Adam questioning his happy suburban life and wondering how many lies he has been told. Can he ever trust his wife again?

Others are told secrets by the stranger too. Life shattering, devastating secrets. What does the stranger really want? Money, satisfaction, or something else? Why do this to people?

I was intrigued by the premise of this stand alone novel by Harlan Coben. He uses his usual fast paced, short chapters that fans are used to. Twists to the story are dotted throughout; just as you think you know what’s going on he throws in another curveball.

The revelations at the end of the book were very late coming. I felt the book took quite a while to start pulling the different strands together. At the same time I felt I needed to know more about the stranger. One of the ‘victims’ of the stranger didn’t seem to have their story finished, but everything else was wrapped up nicely at the end. Great for readers who enjoy faced paced, easy to read novels with plenty of twists.


You can get the book here The Stranger (UK) or here The Stranger (US).

I received a copy of this book from NetGalley.
