New York Times bestselling master of suspense Harlan Coben 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 . . 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.

Harlan Coben's thriller, The Stranger, is a terrific fast-paced book. Out of nowhere a "stranger" approaches Adam Price and tells him about a devastating secret that his wife, Corinne, has kept from him. Then all hell breaks loose. First his wife takes off and a lot of surprises follow. Interesting is all the characters in the book trying to maintain the "American Dream"

Harlan Coben (born January 4, 1962) is an American writer of mystery novels and thrillers.

Harlan Coben (born January 4, 1962) is an American writer of mystery novels and thrillers. The plots of his novels often involve the resurfacing of unresolved or misinterpreted events in the past, murders, or fatal accidents and have multiple twists. Among his novels are two series, each involving the same protagonist set in and around New York and New Jersey, and some characters appear in both.

The story is still good, but doesn't compare to some of his other books. If you have not read Coben don't start with this one. Read Missing You, Tell No One, The Innocent, No Second Chance. Who is the stranger and where is his wife is what the story is all about. But what makes Harlan Coben novels tick - the dry humor, the chemistry between the main characters, the twist in the plot is all missing. The story starts off very strong. But somewhere towards the middle it weakens, and then just deflates.

Should have read the reviews first. I didn't because I love Harlan Coben's writing, and realized I hadn't read this one, so I bought it and dove right in. As usual, he writes with the magic of suspense and plot that draw you in and the pace that keeps it moving, so you just don't want to put the book down. In these respects, the Stranger is up to his usual standards. But I agree with several reviewers, the ending was a total let down. Bummer.
Other reviewers made several good points; the Stranger himself not being developed, and the hero, Adam, getting whacked with a baseball bat; still able to extricate himself from mortal danger. But, given Coben's track record of solid suspenseful writing, I can overlook some flaws. The main story arc was Adam on a quest to find his wife, Corinne, and the story drew a compelling closeness to Adam, his sons and his wife. As the plot races toward the conclusion, Adam realizes he's somewhat responsible for Corrine's original deception that led the Stranger to seek him out to disclose her secret. Bottom line, IMHO, the ending did not fit with the main story arc, leaving me unfulfilled and disappointed.
Very much like watching a really good football game, with the team you're really rooting for, losing: Bummer.

Fast opening that pulls you in. followed by a silly, laborious plot that gets worse as it drags along. A huge cast of dull, interchangeable characters who appear and disappear without making any impression or adding any substance to the story. The pointlessly convoluted and sloppy plot limps along piling new characters and trite twists on without any real impact, and filled with holes you could drive a truck through. Minimal suspense (that's a kind description) and a resolution that is so lame that it's laughable. Makes me wonder if Coben is one of those best-selling authors who is now using freelance ghostwriters to churn his books out because he is doesn't want to write any more, but is unwilling to give up the $$$. Because this sure doesn't read like a popular professional writer had anything to do with it. I forced myself to read the whole thing hoping it would get better, but no such luck. Erased this mess from my Kindle the minute I finished it.

Not my favorite Harlan Coben book and I've read all of them. The story is still good, but doesn't compare to some of his other books. If you have not read Coben don't start with this one. Read Missing You, Tell No One, The Innocent, No Second Chance. I mean this is good, it's just not great like all of his other books. The concept is amazing, but somewhere along the way too many plot lines intertwined and they didn't have enough thread to connect them which made the ending seem forced. I also didn't really like the ending. It's hard to write a review for a book that had some compelling characters, a fantastic concept, but didn't finish with the same tenacity and adrenaline surge I've come to expect with Coben's books. He is a fantastic storyteller and writes with ease. His unique voice is refreshing and I love how he incorporates social media and so many other trending issues into his story lines. He is an excellent author, one of my top five favorite all time authors. He is the absolute best at writing real and authentic dialogue that truly resonates with you. This book just wasn't one of his best - or better said, wasn't one of my favorites. Don't get me wrong. It is full of suspense and I read it in one or two sittings. I just didn't have that ... don't want it to end feeling that I normally have with this author. It begins super strong, hooked me in the first few pages and the intensity grew, but for me it fell flat in the end.

As a huge fan of Harlan Coben, I look forward to every new book published by him. This, however, was not to my liking. The various story lines in the book did not flow together well and many characters were not fully developed. From Suzanne to the lacrosse board to Chris and his team to Kuntz and his people, this book was just all over the place. I was left with more questions than anything. What did Kristin Hoy actually know all along? What became of Kimberly and the sugar daddies? Adam found Gabrielle through friends of friends of friends of friends on Facebook ... we're supposed to buy that? How did Chris and his team fund their endeavors if people didn't choose to pay the extortion fee? The "for hire" option of his venture went completely against its "core values" so that negated the entire purpose. The character of John Kuntz ... never fully developed. He was crucified in the media for a takedown gone wrong and then turned into a bad guy who kills for money to save his dying son? What? This book just had way too much going on and nothing worked well together. That's my take. Not recommended.

I really like Harlan Coben, and have read most of his books. I love the Myron Bolitar series. This book left me a little disappointed. The story goes as this - a stranger approaches Adam Price and tells him a secret his wife has been keeping from him. Adam is devastated and confronts his wife who takes off, leaving him and their two boys to take care of themselves. This is very unlike her. In the quest to find her Adam finds out about other people who have had a similar experience of a stranger approaching them with life-altering secrets. Who is the stranger and where is his wife is what the story is all about.
But what makes Harlan Coben novels tick - the dry humor, the chemistry between the main characters, the twist in the plot is all missing. The story starts off very strong. But somewhere towards the middle it weakens, and then just deflates. There are two parallel plots which only tie in at the very end, and the final resolution appears forced. I just didn't buy it. How Adam works everything out is based on one word in one text! And what Adam does during the climax, and then what happens to him are both out of character for the key players involved. Left me a little disappointed to read this from an author I respect.
