Publisher's Summary

#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.

The worst Coben book among the many I've heard

This offering by Coben was headed for three stars because of mixed plots drawn together by a weak thread. The premise behind the "Stranger" character was a complete stretch. The mystery behind what had happened to Corinne was enough to keep me interested. The mystery revealed was neither satisfying nor disappointing. But what happened after that in the last chapter of the book was ludicrous and brought the whole thing down to two stars. Coben must have owed his publisher a book when he penned this well-below average novel. He has done much better.

Coben let us down

Because we have loved the Myron Bolitar series, we hopes to enjoy this novel as well. Downloaded it for a road trip and sadly wasted our time. Weak character, predictable story, unbelievable. Coben's typical quips on daily life as a parent was accurate but like watching paint dry. It could have been a minute by minute update of an average day in my life detailing minutia. Sorry to say, we missed the great characters that typified his earlier writing. Skip it.
