Review

#1 National Bestseller
A New York Times Bestseller
International Bestseller


"So many dizzying twists you'd better not drive after reading!" —Linwood Barclay, New York Times bestselling author of Parting Shot

"Shari Lapena poses the question: How well do you know your spouse? . . . Lapena keeps the well-developed twists churning, with each a surprise notch in this ever-evolving plot, and she continues this skillful storytelling until the stunning twist at the end." —Associated Press

"Smart, twisty and compulsive. Suspense and suspicion accumulate relentlessly, toying with your expectations and your emotions right up until the packs-a-punch ending. Don't miss it, and don’t expect to be able to put it down." —Gilly Macmillan, New York Times bestselling author of The Perfect Girl

"Great suspense and lots of twists." —Toronto Star

"A diverting page-turner." —Publishers Weekly

"Smart and suspenseful. . . . You'll never see the ending coming." —PureWow

"Lapena ups the stakes by narrating from the viewpoint of both husband and wife, as well as by chucking in a firecracker of a plot twist. . . . Her deliberately unemotional prose style enhances the creeping sense of dread throughout." —Metro (UK)

"A Stranger in the House will have you sleeping with the lights on for weeks." —Bustle

PRAISE FOR The Couple Next Door:

"Meticulously crafted and razor sharp. The Couple Next Door lingers long after you turn the final page." —Harlan Coben, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Fool Me Once

"The twists come as fast [as] you can turn the pages." —People

"Provocative and shocking. One crime, an entire neighborhood of suspects, secrets and lies. How well do we ever know those around us? The Couple Next Door will keep you glued to the pages in search of the answer. Even then, you’ll never guess the truth . . . until it's too late." —Lisa Gardner, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Find Her

"I read this novel at one sitting, absolutely riveted by the story line. The suspense was beautifully rendered and unrelenting!" —Sue Grafton, New York Timesbestselling author of X

"Real men read women writers–because of books like this. Trust me." —Lee Child, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Make Me

"Shari Lapena has written a stunning debut thriller. Turn on the night lights and lock all your doors and windows. The Couple Next Door grabs you with each twist and shocks you with every betrayal." —Linda Fairstein, New York Times bestselling author of Killer Look

"A twisty, utterly riveting tale that will send readers on a wild roller-coaster ride of emotions. Shocking revelations kept me turning the pages like a madwoman." —Tess Gerritsen, New York Times bestselling author of Playing with Fire

"Expertly paced and finely crafted, The Couple Next Door is a gripping thriller of the highest order. I couldn't put it down." —A. J. Banner, bestselling author of The Good Neighbor

"Gripped me from the very beginning to the very end!" —Becky Masterman, author of Rage Against the Dying

"Brilliant! This utterly riveting psychological thriller hurtles along at breakneck speed, never giving you the opportunity to catch your breath. Twisty, turny and unputdownable." —C. L. Taylor, bestselling  author of The Lie

"Exquisitely torturous tension." —NPR

"Where did that baby go! It's hard not to read to the end to find out, and the twists waiting there are gratifyingly clever." —USA Today

"The many never-saw-them-coming twists and questionable characters . . . will keep you on the edge of your seat. First-time novelist Lapena's writing is spare and tense, and it makes The Couple Next Door a compulsive read. The last line is absolutely a killer." —Good Housekeeping

"[A] well-sculpted domestic thriller. . . . Highly suspenseful. . . . Twists are subtly revealed with aplomb, taking the story to increasingly unpredictable levels." Associated Press
