Then one night, Gloria's house burns to the ground. Bodies are found in the wreckage.

And Katy's horror turns to disbelief when her own father is arrested and charged with murder.

Determined to prove his innocence, Katy sets out to uncover the truth about the mysterious house across the street and find the real murderer. But that means risking her own life...

'Lesley Pearse brilliantly captures the era... Emotional and moving, The House Across The Street is storytelling at its best, filled with characters you will care passionately about' - Anne Cater, The Daily Express

'A gripping read set in the 1960s. The story becomes a full-blown mystery that will leave Katy's life in danger, and the search for answers drives this engaging combination of thriller and drama' - The People's Friend

'Lesley Pearse is on top form with her latest novel The House Across The Street' - Choice

'A deeply evocative read' - Woman Magazine
