Catching a killer is dangerous--especially if he lives next door From the hugely talented author of The Kind Worth Killing comes an exquisitely chilling tale of a young suburban wife with a history of psychological instability whose fears about her new neighbor could lead them both to murder . . . Hen and her husband Lloyd have settled into a quiet life in a new house outside of Boston, Massachusetts. Hen (short for Henrietta) is an illustrator and works out of a studio nearby, and has found the right meds to control her bipolar disorder. Finally, she's found some stability and peace. But when they meet the neighbors next door, that calm begins to erode as she spots a familiar object displayed on the husband's office shelf. The sports trophy looks exactly like one that went missing from the home of a young man who was killed two years ago. Hen knows because she's long had a fascination with this unsolved murder--an obsession she doesn't talk about anymore, but can't fully shake either. Could her neighbor, Matthew, be a killer? Or is this the beginning of another psychotic episode like the one she suffered back in college, when she became so consumed with proving a fellow student guilty that she ended up hurting a classmate? The more Hen observes Matthew, the more she suspects he's planning something truly terrifying. Yet no one will believe her. Then one night, when she comes face to face with Matthew in a dark parking lot, she realizes that he knows she's been watching him, that she's really on to him. And that this is the beginning of a horrifying nightmare she may not live to escape. . .… (lisätietoja)

Well I think that was pretty dang good. I was pretty stumped until about 3/4 of the way through the book and then I started to kind of guess who was doing what and how. It’s a good set up and overall I think the whole story was done nicely. I actually was on the edge of my seat a few times and thinking “oh no he is not going to go there!” But he usually did. ( )

"Could her neighbor Matthew be a killer? Or is this the beginning of another psychotic episode like the one she suffered in college, when she became so consumed with a friend’s guilt that she ended up hurting someone? The more Hen observes Matthew, the more she suspects he’s planning something truly terrifying. Yet no one will believe her." The plot is like something straight out of a Hitchcock film. There is a twist...but you know who the killer is the second the first hint is dropped. However it doesn't spoil the story or the atmosphere that the book produces in the least. This s not your typical psychological drama. The author has done here what he has proven he could do in every book I have ever read by him... entice the reader with his characters flaws and short comings by throwing in murderers...cheaters...and liars wrapping it all up nicely in the end.

It's official, Peter Swanson is my favorite psycho thriller author!

Argh, why didn't I see that twist? I was fooled all along... I don't think I've re-read any books, but perhaps need to revisit this one again to find the clues. Oh, I wish Peter Swanson gave us a little more "before she knew him". ( )

I quite liked this one. Hen has a new neighbour who she suspects is a murderer. As it turns out every character is insane, this book takes you on quite a ride. ( )

It was a quick read but it lacked substance. All the characters were unlikable and the "twist" was the most predictable I've encountered in a long time. ( )
