Goodbye Stranger by Blake Rudman

Blake Rudman's book is a must-read if you're into psychological thrillers that keep you on edge. You may not recognize his name as he has only just begun to release his books this year.

The focus of "Goodbye Stranger" is on Preston Harrington, a retired NFL Super Bowl-winning quarterback, and his wife Danielle Harrington. Preston is a successful and committed family man, but his dark side is only known by his brother, Tyler. Football-related concussions, did they cause Preston to have chronic traumatic encephalopathy? Or is he only malevolent?

The way Rudman portrayed Preston's descent into darkness is both chilling and poignant. By skilfully incorporating Preston's history of injuries and concussions, the author creates a narrative that delves into both the physical toll of sports and the psychological impact of hiding it. The doubt of a secret romance adds more stress to the narration, escalating the emotional agony of Danielle's voyage.

With the reappearance of an old adversary and a chain of tragic events, Danielle and her kids' lives are in peril, leading to a dramatic turn in the plot. The twists and turns in "Goodbye Stranger" showcase Rudman's storytelling ability, making it a page-turner you won't be able to stop reading. Rudman's narrative is both engaging and suspenseful, as it delves into the consequences of living a lie and the darker side of success. Palpable suspense, well-developed characters, and intricate plot. This is a must-read for fans of psychological thrillers and a testament to Rudman’s storytelling genius.
