(Berkley Trade Paperback; April 10, 2018; $16.00)

The Girl Before meets The Couple Next Door in an utterly satisfying Hitchcockian story about a couple who moves into their dream neighborhood only to discover nothing is as it seems...

The perfect couple. The perfect house. The perfect crime.

Londoners Jack and Syd found their dream home: lots of space, a great location, and a friendly owner who wanted a young couple to have it. 

Everything is exactly what they hoped for when they move in—except Jack makes a disturbing discovery in the attic, and Syd begins to wonder about the girl next door. And they each keep the other in the dark.

A mistake.

Because someone has just been killed outside their back door, and now the police are watching them. 

This is their chance to prove they're innocent—or to get away with murder. 

Whose story do you believe?


I got the opportunity to read this book ahead of its publication date thanks to Berkeley Press. 

This was a good thriller. It started off with weird things happening in this couples new house, that I was sure it was going to be a ghost story. It was creepy and suspenseful. The telling by both characters separately added to the suspense. 

I was hooked early and was eager to read in until finished and had learned what was really going on. There is a bit of a twist at the end, that I won’t mention, but it did surprise me. 

If you like suspense with a some twisted family drama thrown in, you will enjoy this one by Lelic. 

Happy Reading!
