Publisher's Summary

What if you came home to find a stranger living inside your house? An "oustanding, ever-twisting, surprise-filled" psychological drama (Publishers Weekly), in the tradition of Shari Lapena and Liane Moriarty, from Edgar- and Thriller Award-nominated author Laura Benedict. 

There's a stranger living in Kimber Hannon's house. He tells the police that he has every right to be there, and he has the paperwork to prove it. But Kimber definitely didn't invite this man to move in. He tells her that he knows something about her, and he wants everyone else to know it too.

"I was there. I saw what you did."

These words reveal a connection to Kimber's distant past, and dark secrets she'd long ago left buried. This trespasser isn't after anything as simple as her money or her charming Craftsman bungalow. He wants to move into her carefully orchestrated life - and destroy it.

Critic Reviews

"Benedict spins a story driven by deceit on the part of most of the principals, with tension increasing with the body count and the twists and turns that continue to the very end." (Booklist)

"The Stranger Inside is a twisty, compelling thriller. Laura Benedict takes hold of your throat and doesn't let go until the final page." (Jeff Abbott, New York Times best-selling author of The Three Beths)

"Outstanding.... Kimber's complicated personality and unusual family life drive the ever-twisting, surprise-filled plot.... [She] is the epitome of the unreliable narrator." (Publishers Weekly, starred review)

Different - in a good way

This was a thoroughly enjoyable and suspenseful book. It was different in that I sure hadn’t figured it all out until the end. That makes a good read in my opinion.

Good book and excellent narration

The idea was good but the plot moves slowly. I had a bit of trouble sticking with it. The major character was headstrong and not likable. Twists were good.

Hmmmmmmm.....

A bit interesting at first but I kept listening thinking it would get better. Didn’t. I think I may return it because I can do better on this site. I wouldn’t bother. Disjointed

Good book!

I love the narrator she is one of my favorites. The book itself was an enjoyable listen. The author had me wondering with a lot going on in the storyline.

when living double lives catch up with you

Chile...the drama! This book is juicy and full highs, and more highs. The betrayal is not what I expected at all, but a great read.
