The Other Passenger: Signed Edition (Hardback)Louise Candlish (author)
- 5+ in stock
Set amongst the ‘water rats’ of the Thames riverboat community, Candlish’s disquieting thriller probes the enmity that lies beneath the surface of friendships as well as the fatal unreliability of memory.
You're feeling pretty smug about your commute to work by riverboat. No more traffic gridlock or getting stuck on the tube in tunnels (you're claustrophobic). Now you've got fresh air, an iconic Thames view, a whole lifestyle upgrade. You've made new friends on board - led by your hedonistic young neighbour, Kit - and just had your first official 'water rats' get-together.
The day after the drinks, Kit isn't on the morning boat. The river landmarks are all the same, but something's off. When you disembark, the police are waiting. Kit's wife, Melia, has reported him missing and another passenger saw you arguing on the last boat home after your drinks. Police say you had a reason to lash out at him. To threaten him.
You protest. You and Kit are friends - ask Melia, she'll vouch for you. And who exactly is pointing the finger? What do they know about your private lives?
No, whatever coincidences might have occurred last night, you are innocent, totally innocent.

'A smart, twisty thriller that explores how money can warp relationships and destroy lives. A compulsive read that builds to an unimaginable climax. I couldn't put it down!' - Shari Lapena, author of The Couple Next Door
'The Other Passenger is just brilliant; gripping from the first page with an incredible first person narrative and a sense of place that pulls you through the pages fast enough to make your head spin. Louise Candlish just gets better and better, I love her' - Lisa Jewell, author of The Family Upstairs
'A novel like a roulette wheel at full tilt: smooth, hypnotic, relentless, exciting - and ultimately, just as unpredictable... Like every Candlish thriller, The Other Passenger is psychological suspense at its most elegant and sinister' - AJ Finn, author of The Woman in the Window
'A stunning masterwork of style and suspense. The Other Passenger is one of those novels that grabs us from the start, then keeps us up all night by brilliantly peeling back the layers of the story until we arrive-shockingly-at the truth. I can't think of another novel in which the characters are so perfectly drawn' - Jeffery Deaver
'I'm a HUGE fan of Louise Candlish's writing but she really knocks it out of the park with this one, with its Hitchcockian atmosphere of mounting dread and almost unbearable suspense, building to its astonishing conclusion. And it's all so frighteningly credible because the characters are so brilliantly drawn, so knowable. A must read!' - Lucy Foley, author of The Guest List
