THE MUST-READ PSYCHOLOGICAL THRILLER FROM THE BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF GIRL UNKNOWN & YOUR CLOSEST FRIEND

'An intense drama. A clever novel in which everyone is hiding something, and keeps the reader guessing' Sunday Times

FRIEND. NEIGHBOUR. KILLER?

Leah's new to Wyndham Park. Lonely and suffering from insomnia, she befriends her upstairs neighbour Anton.

Anton has only recently returned to the street and is lonely too.

He's been gone for nineteen years - but he hasn't told Leah the reason why.

That nineteen years ago he was imprisoned for killing his wife. A wife who looked a bit like Leah . . .

Was he wrongly convicted?


Or is Leah befriending a killer intent on luring her closer and closer?

“Enjoyable”

An enjoyable psychological thriller with some good twists and an unexpected ending, however I didn't feel some of the characters - Mark, Jake and Greg - were as well written as others.
