Lapena reveals another civilised neighbourhood with a host of darks secrets festering under the surface. From anonymous letters to cold blooded murder, something is very wrong in this particular suburb, as Someone We Know ratchets up the tension to unbearable levels. Nobody does it better.
It can be hard keeping secrets in a tight-knit neighbourhood. In a tranquil, leafy suburb of ordinary streets - one where everyone is polite and friendly - an anonymous note has been left at some of the houses. 'I'm so sorry. My son has been getting into people's houses. He's broken into yours.'
Who is this boy, and what might he have uncovered? As whispers start to circulate, suspicion mounts. And when a missing local woman is found murdered, the tension reaches breaking point.
Who killed her? Who knows more than they're telling? And how far will all these very nice people go to protect their secrets? Maybe you don't know your neighbour as well as you thought you did...

'One neighbourhood, four couples, an amateur burglar and one dead body - this is a masterful whodunnit, perfectly paced and expertly plotted, that had me guessing all the way through. Like Desperate Housewives with bite. I loved it and couldn't put it down.' - C. L. Taylor
'Shari Lapena just gets better and better.' - Cara Hunter
'Exactly what I love in a book: a small cast, an intricate plot worthy of Agatha Christie, with characters who stay in my mind long after the novel has finished. As for her writing - it was just perfect, as though Anne Tyler had written a thriller. No greater compliment can be given!' - Mary Torjussen
