Tables at the Main Library

The Stranger

Posted on March 11, 2016 at 9:33 AM

I was probably 3 discs into the audiobook of Harlan Coben's The Stranger when I knew I had to write this post! The story starts innocently enough - Adam Price is at the local American Legion waiting for the lacrosse meeting to start. Abruptly he is approached by the Stranger. This man kindly informs Adam that he didn't have to stay with his wife a couple years ago, because that pregnancy was a fake. Fake positive test strips. Fake sonogram. Fake belly. Fake miscarriage. This information sets events in motion that threaten to dismantle an almost-ideal family. And the Price family's secrets aren't the only ones the Stranger is divulging. The twists and turns of the plot, the way the secrets intertwine, and the subtle hints and red herrings make for another excellent mystery/thriller by Coben.

I’m Teresa Dustman, and I’m the Circulation Manager here at WCPL. If you come into the library with any frequency you know my face from the front desk (because I feel like I live out there!). When I’m not at the front desk I’m at my desk behind the window, working to make your library experience exceptional. During those hours that I’m away from the library I love to walk, jog, bike, kayak (anything enjoying God’s nature), travel, and spend time with my family and friends.
