Introduction

#1 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 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.

This was my second book by this author (Six Years being the first). This was an engaging story that grabbed me in the first chapter.

The stranger didn't shatter Adam's world all at once.

  "Unputdownable "by ebach (see profile) 10/15/16

Once again Harlan Coben has written an unputdownable novel.

As always, Coben gives us a multilayered story that is actually story upon story upon story. That's what makes it unputdownable

  "Sinister, intense, dark, and addictive"by ccroft78248 (see profile) 11/09/15

Wow, what a good read! This is a fast paced easy to read novel with a lot of twists and turns. It's creepy and intense, but rouses the curiosity so that you do not want to put it down.

Good read. Lots of unexpected twists and turns. Didn't want to out down, once I started getting into it. Definitely not what I expected, but great book!
