Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin. 

The gripping new thriller from the number-one best-selling author of The Couple Next Door.

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....

Wish I had not bothered

This was such a run of the mill, standard thriller that I had to keep double checking to see if I had the right author. I’ve enjoyed her previous works but this was tedious. A boring suburban murder with dull characters who did not spring from the page.

It's good but has nothing on some her other work!

Narrated beautifully, story was enjoyable just not as brilliant thought out as her other books 'couple next door' and 'stranger in the house'. Still worth a listen but unfortunately didn't out do her previous work.

I liked it at the time, but easily forgot about it

I listening to this over a couple of days, and as much as I enjoyed it at the time, I wouldn't recommend it to a friend as I totally forgot the story! A bit samey. Although there were some nice twists. The main female character (name forgotten) irritated the hell out of me though.

Good read

It was a good read overall if a little predictable. There were no twists or surprises for me but I enjoyed it.

Easy listen

Not very taxing, easy listening story about curtain twitchers essentially. Likeable characters, well drawn. Good narrator.

phenomenal author

I have seriously taken to this author after reading her first 2 books. The storylinss just get better and better. So much shock and wow factor, it's fantastic! I've just 1 more in my library, "Uninvited Guest" I think it is and then the hunt is on to find everything else that's been written by Shari. I definitely HIGHLY recommend you give these books a listen starting from "The Couple Next Door."

Loved it.

Thoroughly enjoyed my second novel from this writer. It was excellent, made my workouts and commutes much easier while listening to this.
The reader did a wonderful job with the different characters too. Look forward to another book.
