Immediatel he runs into the Stranger. When he accepts a devastating secret about his father, Corinne, he asks her, and the mirage of perfection disappears as if it actuall existed at all. Soon Adam finds himself tangled in something far darker than even Corinne ’ s eception, and insists that if he doesn ’ t ake exactly the right moves, the conspiracy he ’ s jumpe into will not only ruin lives—it will end them.

After Adam confronts his wife about this she runs ff, telling him to ive her time ... As days goes by Adam discovers that this stranger is revealing dark secrets to other people as well, and destroying lives.

Who is his stranger, why is he revealing secrets, and how do they get him to stop before he ruins more lives? I thoroughly enjoyed th ook.

I gave his book 2 stars for 2 reasons- 1, the write was Harlan Coben whom I love and 2, it kept me needing to finish it to ge out how the ridiculous plot and storyline ended.

Coben has mastered the art of convincing people the ones we love the most just might not be who we think they are or they may harbor some type of secret that wil shatter our lives and cause everything to unravel.

he Stranger is no exception.Adam Price was living a comfortable life with his wife Corinne and their two sons when a stranger ask him that his son has a secret that ould estroy their matrimonial bliss.

As Adam begins to uncove the validity of the tranger 's claims, he is ( as most characters from Coben 's novels are) ill equipped for the battle that will occur.

Sometimes I 'm compelled to support the charmingly befuddled lead in Coben 's novels but this time I could n't.

His naivete makes for an exhausting read.The Stranger is not only flawed with Adam Price.

Yes, in every mystery novel you want your head to spin but not too much o that you ca n't pinpoint a single possible lead to solving this mystery along with the haracters.

And I did n't buy Coben trying to humanize the " stranger " and his crew who only wanted to rid the world of lies.

Harlan Coben long ago cornered the market on the New Jersey Suburban Family Thriller sub-genre, which involves average, ordinary American folks -- almost always wonderful people with great families -- who are suddenly thrown into chaos and danger when some powerful negative force intrudes into their daily lives.

Their principal worries seem to revolve around whether or not their elder son is being treated fairly by his lacrosse coach and whether the kid will get enough playing time.Then, out of nowhere, Adam 's world is abruptly turned upside down when a stranger approaches him in a bar and reveals a devastating secret about Corinne.

As Adam 's search draws him closer to the enter of this troubling mystery, he antagonizes some dangerous and desperate adversaries, and it becomes entirely possible that even if Corinne should finally return home, her husband may have lost his life in his desperate ffort to find her.I thought that his nove was okay -- an ntertaining way to spend a couple of nights, but the tal that is quickly forgettable.

I actually continue reading his books a year or so ago and I am o appy I found him.
