The bestselling author of The Kind Worth Killing returns with an electrifying psychological thriller

As tantalizing as Rear Window, Gone Girl, The Girl on the Train and The Talented Mr Ripley

‘I loved it! A brilliantly original premise, delivered with panache.’ CLARE MACKINTOSH, Sunday Times bestselling author of I See You

Following a brutal attack by her ex-boyfriend, Kate Priddy makes an uncharacteristically bold decision after her cousin, Corbin Dell, suggests a temporary apartment swap – and she moves from London to Boston.

But soon after her arrival Kate makes a shocking discovery: Corbin’s next-door neighbour, a young woman named Audrey Marshall, has been murdered. When the police begin asking questions about Corbin’s relationship with Audrey, and his neighbours come forward with their own suspicions, a shaken Kate has few answers, and many questions of her own.

Jetlagged and emotionally unstable, her imagination playing out her every fear, Kate can barely trust herself… so how can she trust any of the strangers she’s just met?

Critic Reviews

A neatly characterised, thoroughly atmospheric Hitchcockian thriller.

Critic Reviews

Another read-in-one-sitting novel from the best-selling Swanson.

Critic Reviews

A stylish story, cleverly told from multiple points of view. Slick and grisly.

Critic Reviews

Once again Peter Swanson delivers a thriller that shoves the recent wave of domestic noirs into the shade.

Critic Reviews

A masterclass in psychological insight and intricate plotting... beware those with a nervous disposition!

Critic Reviews

Swanson's follow up to the gripping and dark The Kind Worth Killing is equally suspenseful... Edgy all along it builds to an explosive climax.

Critic Reviews

Readers won’t anticipate the Hitchcockian twists and turns in this standout suspense tale.

Critic Reviews

Swanson, who also wrote The Girl with a Clock for a Heart and The Kind Worth Killing, has quickly established himself as today’s master of the suspense novel.

Otto Penzler
Critic Reviews

Chapter by chapter, the text peels back layers to reveal a pathological relationship between Kate’s cousin and a long-ago acquaintance that’s reminiscent of a folie à deux out of Patricia Highsmith.

Critic Reviews

A compulsive thriller.

Critic Reviews

Psychological thriller devotees should block time to read Swanson’s novel in one sitting, preferably in the daylight.

Critic Reviews

Swanson’s third thriller cracks to life in the opening pages... an excellent whodunit with a magical appeal for the mystery thriller lover.


Peter Swanson’s novels include The Girl With a Clock for a Heart, nominated for an LA Times book award, The Kind Worth Killing, a Richard and Judy pick and the iBooks store’s thriller of the year in 2015, and, most recently, Before She Knew Him.
