Harlan Coben, the #1 New York Times bestselling master of suspense, 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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This page-turner is one stranger that readers will want to meet.” Associated Press
The Stranger isn’t just a great thriller, it’s a stunningly effective, probative novel about one man’s search, essentially, for his own identity…Flat-out great and not to be missed.” Providence Journal
“Coben can always be relied on to generate thrills from the simplest premises, but his finest tales maintain a core of logic throughout the twists. This 100-proof nightmare ranks among his most potent.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“Coben’s standalone thriller builds tension from the very first page and mines our deepest fears about privacy: In the era of the Internet, are any of our most damaging secrets really secure?” BookPage
“Coben’s latest stand-alone is a great story for people who like to examine the ephemeral nature of those strings that bind our dreams to our reality.” Library Journal
“Narrator George Newbern uses a variety of tones that work in sync with the emotional pull of this story. Newbern alters voices subtly but enough for listeners to keep track of the folks involved. Individual personalities come out of each character as he shapes the story. This well-paced thriller will keep listeners guessing.” AudioFile
