Synopsis (Goodreads):
You wake up in the morning to discover that you have been sealed into your home. The doors are locked, the windows are barred. THERE'S NO WAY OUT.

A madman is playing a deadly game with you and your family. A game with no rules, only consequences. So what do you do? Do you run? Do you hide?

OR DO YOU DIE?
Thoughts on Strangers: I'm still trying to work my head around the twists and turns of this book and it's been nearly 24 hours since I finished it. I almost don't even know where to begin with my dissection of the plot. Because -- holy smokes -- there's a WHOLE LOT that happens.

How about this -- It's incredibly, wonderfully creepy. We get blood and death and SECRETS that spill across the pages. We get a shadowy individual who is so tangled up in the Hughes' lives that they can't make a move without him knowing about it. That right there might be the creepiest thing of all.

This person knows everything about them. He knows them better than they know themselves. I can't imagine anything more terrifying.

Unless it's being trapped in my own house with a madman on the loose.

But, really, what are the chances of THAT happening?

Twisty, twisty, twisty with a side order of twist. Like I said, I'm still thinking about it a day later. Also, I might sleep with the lights on tonight.

  1. This is the third book I've read to date by Michaelbrent Collings, and have not been disappointed in any so far. This is one author that I plan on putting on my "must buy" list for the future. Highly recommended!
