Chris Martin’s The Stranger is a disturbing story. We start with an introduction to Dillon Bledsoe, a resident of Seal Bay, a one-horse town with a secret. We are then taken on a journey with more twists than a Coney Island roller coaster. Despite some clichéd dialogue and description, Martin weaves a compelling tale with a skillfully concealed ending that just might leave you breathless.
A well-written novella with, as mentioned, dialogue that is a bit cliché, but which still manages to entertain right up to the ending. I give this work three stars.
