Critic Reviews

"Dark, claustrophobic and suffused with a creeping sense of menace, The Perfect Neighbours builds to a shocking climax. I thoroughly enjoyed it." (Alex Lake, best-selling author of After Anna)

"An escalating sense of foreboding...Sargeant certainly makes the plot twists almost impossible to second guess, but for the merest passing details, keeping the reader turning the page." (Lincolnshire Life)  

"An original, gripping thriller that is both unnerving and shocking in equal measure. I was immediately drawn into the strange, claustrophobic neighbourhood and Rachel Sargeant creates a thrilling sense of foreboding throughout." (Phoebe Morgan, author of The Doll House)

4 stars but with definite exceptions see review<br />

oh well now. at chapter 8 I was completely lost
at chapter 28 I wasn't much better but I began to get my place. As always there will be no spoilers in my reviews. I felt the German speach was pointless (poor narrator had to pronounce )
early in I felt there were too many characters without anything memorable to distinguish
then I felt like giving up on book around chapter 28 I felt like it was FINALLY starting to come together. from there on it was Good. actually really good. it redeemed itself nicely , although I had figured some things out I still was pleasantly surprised, one part seemed quite if a far fetched and a little out there for me and probably unnecessary, but all in all. I did end up enjoying this book. so if you are getting discouraged hang in there.
