The Stranger by Harlan Coben

The Stranger delivers secrets. Secrets that can change your life. Secrets that can result in tragic consequences.

Adam Price's life is about to change in ways he can't begin to comprehend. His life appears to be idyllic. He is married,  has two sons and earns a decent wage but on an ordinary day, The Stranger delivers a secret that sends his life spiraling out of control.

The Stranger knows things about, Adams wife that he himself doesn't know --- when he confronts her, she flees and Adam is left wondering what to believe, who to believe and when he becomes suspect in his wife's disapperance, he makes it his mission to find out exactly what is going on.

The Stranger delivers secrets to other characters and Coben ties them all together in a neat little package. You will be guessing until the very end. Everyone becomes suspect. Coben layers his story together like a a delicous five layer cake.

Grade: A
