Publisher's Summary

How much do you know about the couple next door? 

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 best seller Lisa Stone.

Silly and Awful

I’m always ready to suspend my disbelief when reading fiction, but the plot holes in this story are simply too large to ignore. In addition, each character displays a level of stupidity that sapped what little interest I had in the silly plot.

CRAZY

This story is Super Suspenseful.... Creepy and Scary. Not to give anything away, but Beware of the Doctor next door. He's not dealing with a full deck. ???
Parts of this story are very disturbing, they were difficult to read. Pure torture and agony, very scary. But the impact added to the story, making it a Great Thriller.....
Very interesting suspenseful thriller.
I will be remembering this one. 👍

Wow!

Unputdownable. I don’t think I can wait another year for another Lisa Stone book. Gripped from the very start, brilliant story and not a minute went by where I wasn’t hanging on for the next word. Just amazing.

A dreadful totally unrelateable story

I can't believe the good reviews this book has received. The best thing about it was the narrator. The story is awful, completely unrelateable and unbelieveable, it isn't possible to bond with any of the characters, the suspense doesn't exist because it is so predictable and it just never seemed to end.

I really really wanted to leave it 1/2 way through but kept giving it a chance thinking it may just have been a slow starter.

Honestly, if you are looking for something with suspense, that has a good believeable and unerving storyline and that is well written...this is not the book for you.

I was gripped to every words, listening to it at every possible moment. with such an unexpected twist at the end.
