Publisher's Summary

From a master of suspense comes a chilling new novel that explores the dangers lurking closer than you think. Because even in the perfect family, you never know what is going on behind closed doors.

This is what happened...

It was a case guaranteed to spark a media feeding frenzy: a young mother, blond and pretty, disappears without a trace from her South Boston home, leaving behind her four-year-old daughter as the only witness and her handsome, secretive husband as the prime suspect.

In the last six hours...

But from the moment Detective Sergeant D. D. Warren arrives at the Joneses - a snug little bungalow, she senses something off about the picture of wholesome normality the couple worked so hard to create. On the surface, Jason and Sandra Jones are like any other hardworking young couple raising a four-year-old child. But it is just under the surface that things grew murky.

Of the world as I knew it...

With the clock ticking on the life of a missing woman and the media firestorm building, Jason Jones seems more intent on destroying evidence and isolating his daughter than on searching for his beloved wife. Is the perfect husband trying to hide his guilt, or just trying to hide? And will the only witness to the crime be the killer's next victim?

    "Recommended and well written"

    It was a good story. I don't think I was in the mood for it. I didn't like the last third of this book. Maybe it is just not my type.

    "Expect the unexpected!"

    The Neighbor is a great whodunnit. Even the conclusion was a shocker. Great job Lis Gardner. Loved the narration too.

    "Great story line"

    Very well written, easy to follow and understand, keeps you interested all the way through. My husband and I were listening to the story during our interstate car travels and every time we would guess what the next chapter was going to be, it turned out completely different. We normally don't discuss books but we have been talking about this one all the time, particularly when we had to wait for few days till the next trip.

    "not her best"

    I have read all of Lisa Gardners books and this was one of my least favorites. I have been waiting for another next great book, I personally do not think this is it. A let down from all her previous works.. Still waiting for a New great one from this awesome author...

    "Blah, blah, blah - get on with it!"

    The key clues to solving the characters inter-relationships and the storyline are dangled in front of the reader but not exposed until the end; a lazy author. This is especially annoying when the character in question is speaking in first person - they KNOW what they experienced and should be able to describe that event in detail.

    "The Neighbor"

    Wow, what an ending. Enjoyed the three narrators. Each reflected a good sense of character(s). Especially the arrogance of the single focus police. This is one of Gardner's better efforts.
    Download it - it's more than worth it.

    "Keeps you guessing"

    I loved this book because it was narrated wonderfully from the view points of 3 characters and 3 different narators. It kept me guessing the whole time who was guilty. I recommend it.

    "very good"

    I enjoyed this audiobook very much. Engrossing and entertaining. And without giving too much away, I could not at all forecast how it would end, or how the characters might unfold. I usually prefer one narrator with enough versatility to capture each character's voice and personality, but this book seemed to require different actors. Card's narration, as the young wife, initially seemed inexperienced or young but soon turned out to be my favorite, tenderly capturing her character beautifully.
