Strangers by Ursula Archer and Arno Strobel


Trust or die.

Imagine you’re home alone. Suddenly a man stands before you. He claims to be your fiancé. But you have no idea who he is. And nothing in your home suggests that someone lives with you. He’s talking to you, but nothing makes sense. You’re afraid. And you feel the irresistible urge to attack. Take a knife. Are you crazy?

Imagine you come home and your fiancée doesn’t recognize you. She thinks you’re a burglar. Worse, a rapist. You just want to protect her, but she defends herself against your perceived threat and barricades herself behind a door. She claims she’s never seen you before. She obviously thinks you’re crazy. Are you?

A woman. A man. The more they try to understand the situation, the more confusing it becomes. Soon they must realize that they are in deadly danger. And there’s only one chance for survival: they must trust each other.

Strangers by Ursula Archer and Arno Strobel


Joanna is home alone when a man shows up in her house. She panics since she doesn’t know him. He tells her he is her fiancé, Erik, and lives there with her, except there are no signs that he lives there. No clothes. No toiletries. Nothing. As they try to figure out what is going on, they discover they are both in great danger.

Strangers is told from both Joanna and Erik’s points of view. I liked the alternating chapters of different viewpoints. It helped fill in blanks as to what was happening.

Strangers is a fast-paced psychological thriller. I was intrigued as to what the reality was, what was their history, and what happened to cause the situation.

I received a digital copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
