The Stranger Inside by Lisa Unger | Review

The Stranger Inside| Lisa Unger| Park Row BooksPub: September 17, 2019| Pages: 374

The only book I’ve read from Lisa Unger is Confessions on the 7:45 and I absolutely loved that book!

This one was pretty good! I am definitely a Lisa Unger fan and will continue to pick up her books.

Rain, who used to be a journalist, is now a stay-at-home mom. She misses her work deeply, so she is lured back into a case when a suspected killer is found dead. Is this the work of a vigilante killer?!

To make matters even more complicated, the new murder is eerily similar to the murder of the man to which Rain had a personal connection. This leads Rain to become obsessed with the case.

This was quite an addictive thriller! Bonus, I am a huge fan of revenge stories, so this one got me! It was dark, gripping, engrossing!

Thank you to HARLEQUIN – Trade Publishing for providing me with an electronic ARC of this book via NetGalley. As usual, my reviews are my honest and unbiased opinions.


Even good people are drawn to do evil things ... Twelve-year-old Rain Winter narrowly escaped an abduction while walking to a friend's house. Her two best friends, Tess and Hank, were not as lucky. Tess never came home, and Hank was held in captivity before managing to escape. Their abductor was sent to prison but years later was released. Then someone delivered real justice--and killed him in cold blood.

Now Rain is living the perfect suburban life, her dark childhood buried deep. She spends her days as a stay-at-home mom, having put aside her career as a hard-hitting journalist to care for her infant daughter. But when another brutal murderer who escaped justice is found dead, Rain is unexpectedly drawn into the case. Eerie similarities to the murder of her friends' abductor force Rain to revisit memories she's worked hard to leave behind. Is there a vigilante at work? Who is the next target? Why can't Rain just let it go?
