From the author of THE PEOPLE AT NUMBER 9, a new story of nightmare neighbours...
Karen is driving through a strange landscape into a new life. Always a city girl, now she is on her way to an idyllic country cottage, refurbished for her with impeccable taste by her husband Nick. They're making a fresh start.
But something is awry in the new house - it's not just the fact that Karen and Nick are ill at ease in one another's company - that their recent history is far from picture perfect, it's the whole vibe. The landscape is breathtaking by day, eerie by night. If the countryside is supposed to be a place of peace, far away from curtain-twitchers, who is the person watching them from the hill? And who are their new neighbours?
With Karen only recently emerging from a dark place in her life, can she find the trust in her husband Nick to let go of events that have followed them to their new house?
Praise for Felicity Everett:
`An exciting, dark novel about friendship; brutally truthful and raw.' - Adele Parks
`This was clever, relentless and utterly recognisable. I absolutely loved it!' - Katie Fforde
`Very occasionally, a novel that's not in the crime genre grips me as much as the best thrillers do. The People at Number 9 held me in its vice-like grip from first page to last. It's a fascinating analysis of an unhealthy friendship based on insecurity and delusion, and the characters are so vividly drawn that I sympathised with them and despaired of them in equal measure.' - Sophie Hannah
`Excruciating yet unputdownable, this is domestic noir at its most gripping.' - Woman & Home
'A cautionary tale of what happens when you get caught up with the in-crowd... razor sharp dialogue, detail straight out of a Sunday supplement and a gimlet eye for social comedy. The characters and the games they play are instantly recognisable to anyone who has stood at the school gates and felt slightly out of place. I gulped it down quicker than a dirty Martini.' - Veronica Henry
