‘Meticulously crafted and razor-sharp. THE COUPLE NEXT DOOR lingers long after you turn the final page’ HARLAN COBEN

Fast-paced and addictive, THE COUPLE NEXT DOOR announces a major new talent in thriller writing.

You never know what's happening on the other side of the wall.

Your neighbour told you that she didn't want your six-month-old daughter at the dinner party. Nothing personal, she just couldn't stand her crying.

Your husband said it would be fine. After all, you only live next door. You'll have the baby monitor and you'll take it in turns to go back every half hour.

Your daughter was sleeping when you checked on her last. But now, as you race up the stairs in your deathly quiet house, your worst fears are realized. She's gone.

You've never had to call the police before. But now they're in your home, and who knows what they'll find there.

What would you be capable of, when pushed past your limit?

'How well do we ever know those around us? THE COUPLE NEXT DOOR will keep you glued to the pages in search of the answer. Even then, you'll never guess the truth...until it's too late' LISA GARDNER

    Unlikely and tedious. Nearly gave up halfway through, and by arriving 'exhausted and confused'(quote) at the denouement, wished I hadn't persevered. The two stars are for effort, and encouragement to try again.
  • Disappointing

    By Kelly-Ann Shevlin
    I was excited to read this book but was disappointed. Wasn't the page turner I expected. I considered it very dragged out and the twists were very obvious.

    The first book I've ever read fully and loved it! I couldn't put it down. Brought this as a holiday read and finished it in 2 days! Leaves you wanting to find out what happens next constantly so it's hard to pull yourself away. I want to read it again it was that good!

    Wow, what an amazing book filled with twists and turns. I finished this within less than a day I was immediately hooked, you don't see anything coming. The characters leave you with things to think about after the book has finished.
