    Apparently I am the only reviewer who disliked this book. I hav

    Apparently I am the only reviewer who disliked this book. I have read several of Grippando’s books and have enjoyed them all. However I cannot put Lying With Strangers in this category. I quickly tired of all the distrust between husband and wife. It seemed to go on forever and the only reason I can figure is to simply add pages to a novel. The constant barrage of this subject made the book tiresome and disgusting. I would not recommend it to anyone. It will also be a long while before I read another one of his books.

    Very Good Reading!

    Another good Grippando story. Lots of hints to lead you in the wrong direction. A surprise climax and ending. Book "title" near the end so look for it! Be sure to read Acknowledgments at the end of the publication.

    Lying with Strangers

    The story itself was very good...creative topic (haven't read a fiction story about this before). The one thing I couldn't get past was the editing. Sometimes the font was one size and sometimes it was another (and it wasn't intentional). Also the line spacing was off in some places and there were glaring typos in a few spots. That is what made this book hard to read, literally!

    keeps your attention

    I enjoyed this book the whole time I was reading it. It was gripping and kept you wanting to turn the page. I loved the characters and how Grippando portrayed them. By the end of the book it felt as if you knew the characters personally.

    A reviewer

    It wasn't bad, just not as good as his others. It seems like he could not figure out how to end it, so he just did...abruptly. We really got no insight at all about the 'bad guy.'

    fine family drama crime caper

    The head pediatric physician at Boston's Children's Hospital Dr. Peyton Shields and her lawyer husband Kevin Stokes appear to live the American dream to the fullest as they love their respective work and each other. However underneath their seemingly perfect life together, neither trusts the other to remain faithful as he believes she has quite a choice of medical personal and she thinks likewise re the legal profession. Both assume the other cheats. On top of that Kevin resents the move to New England to foster her career and the time she spends at the hospital. --- On a drive home during a snowstorm, Peyton is in a near fatal accident that everyone blames on the weather except her she believes the other driver tried to kill her by forcing her vehicle into icy Jamaica Pond. Kevin especially scorns what he insists is her delusions before turning to a former lover but soon after they begin their tryst, she is killed. BPD arrests the married couple who are on trial while in the background waits a stalker who believes he receives messages to kill from sexy professionals like Peyton. --- Although some of the twists seem implausible, the author lives up to the first syllable of his surname as LIVING WITH STRANGERS grips readers from the moment Rudy the stalker surfaces and never slows down until the final life and death altercation. The fast-paced story line is fun to follow as the soap opera quartet (the married couple, the other woman and the stalker) merge into a fun thriller. Even without Jack Swyteck, readers know that Mr. Grippando writes a fine stand alone family drama crime caper. --- Harriet Klausner
