Synopsis: When Emily and Ben move in next door to Dr Burman and his wife Anita, they are keen to get to know their new neighbours. Outgoing and sociable, Emily tries to befriend the doctor’s wife, but Anita is strangely subdued, barely leaving the house, and terrified of answering the phone.
When Emily goes missing a few weeks later, Ben is plunged into a panic. His wife has left him a note, but can she really have abandoned him for another man? Or has Emily’s curiosity about the couple next door led her straight into danger?
A gripping, sinister thriller with a twist you won’t see coming from the international bestseller Lisa Stone.
Full review and rating will be posted on June 19th.
Oh my god this book…was wild. This my expression when I actually started to get into the plot and realized it wasn’t gonna be your typical domestic thriller:
Me during the third act though because I got so annoyed and frustrated:
ALSO THE FINAL TWIST? I’m not sure how I felt about it but I think I dig it. Definitely leaves the door open for more but I wish there was a tad more explanation behind it.
This reminded me of an old-school R.L. Stine book, which I loved. I do feel it’s a little more horror than a straight thriller, also a compliment.
