Ursula Archer’s and Arno Strobel’s internationally bestselling Strangers is a shocking thriller and mind-bending must-read. It explores what happens when mysterious foul play causes a woman not to recognize or remember her fiancé, but forces the couple to trust each other and fight the odds.

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.

It’s only by chance that I see the entrance light flicker on. Because I happen to glance across at the bathroom window as I blow-dry my hair. Outside, there is light where there shouldn’t be any.

Someone must have activated...

Praise for Strangers

"Archer and Strobel's debut as a team keeps building suspense until you're frantically counting the pages until the end, because you know that only when you reach it will you get the answers you crave as much as the bewildered leads do."—Kirkus Reviews

"[A] propulsive thriller. Nuanced characters, a complex plot, and a skillfully woven alternating narrative drive the story toward a denouement that shocks."—Publishers Weekly

"With intrigue and an international flair, Strangers will totally wow thriller fans. A fluent and vivid narrative highlights the Hitchcock-like plot that results in a chilling masterpiece that will keep readers’ pulses pounding and hearts in their throats. Joanna and Erik are incredibly believable, strangers and pawns in a diabolical scheme they have no idea how they fell into."—RT Book Reviews
