A secret destroys a man’s perfect life and sends him on a collision course with a deadly conspiracy in this shocking thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Harlan Coben.

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.


  • Awful Story

    One of the worst books ever. I gave up 3 or 4 times but thought "it has to get better". And it doesn't. Don't waste your time or money.

  • Worst one

    By Harlanfan
    So disappointing! I love Harlan Coben's books he is the only fiction author I read and up until these past 2 years I've read all of his (non teen series) books as soon as they're released and wait eagerly for the next to come out. This was the first of his I read that I regretted wasting my time and money reading. It was predictable and an extreme let down. I want to read the last two I have yet to read but am starting to think possibly the Mickey Bolitare series has spread himself and his creativeness thin. So disappointed because books like "Gone for Good" and "Tell no One" I've read multiple times and am always referring coben's books to friends really talking up his ability to keep one thinking. So sad maybe it's time to hang up his reads😔
  • Great read!

    I loved this book - the complexity of the story, the humaness of the characters. I would highly recommend it to everybody who is a Harlen Coben fan! Cindy Demme

  • So so

    By Kathytemp
    This was one of his most boring books. And the end was not the usual twist.
  • Very surprising end!

    Secrets can kill! A good book with great plot twists and a super surprising end!
  • The Stranger

    By Mrs. Bernadette J.
    I thought this book was awful. It was confusing, and I felt that each chapter added to the disconnect. The premise on which it was based was elementary and unbelievable. I could not believe this writer is a respected author.
  • Fascinating read.

    By Sammie1989
    This is the first time that I've read a book by Harlan Coben and I must say that I am very satisfied with his work. The book starts off grabbing you by having the "Stranger" approach Adam with a secret. From there, the various characters in the book will come together in a common thread. It's full of mystery and suspense which are two things I love in a book. I will definitely read more of this authors work.
  • Nice thriller
