Book Review

The Stranger by Harlan Coben. Dutton, 2015.  $27.95, 400 pages.

Harlan Coben does not disappoint fans in his latest novel The Stranger. Adam Price, the main character is living the American Dream,: a good job, wife and two kids. Then one day at a Lacrosse meeting, a stranger whispers, “You didn’t have to stay with her.”  The next few minutes of conversation rock Adam’s world. The man murmers unbelievable things about his wife, that she lied about being pregnant, about the miscarriage. He tells Adam the pregnancy test and sonogram printout were all faked. The stranger suggests he should have paternity tests run on the two boys and suggests he look up a charge on the credit card bill and then takes off sprinting. As the story unravels the stranger tells yet another person about a secret in their life.  If you enjoy a twisted plot, well developed characters and page flipping fast action, this is the book. The tangled web of lies changes the course of Adam’s life in a crushingly painful way.  Review by Susan Benning
