Publisher's Summary

Fans of The Couple Next Door will love this gripping thriller. 

There's a stranger in your house. And he knows your biggest secret. 

When Kimber Hannon returns home from a work trip, she's ready to kick back and relax on the sofa. But on reaching the front door, she is shocked to discover that her key no longer works and there's a man in the bedroom window. 

Kimber calls the police, but the intruder tells them he's renting the house. Her neighbour corroborates his story, and it is Kimber who is forced to leave. But before she does, the stranger whispers, '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. Her trespasser isn't after anything as simple as her money or her home. He wants to move into her carefully orchestrated life - and destroy it.

Critic Reviews

"Absorbing, addictive and downright chilling." (Alison Gaylin)

"Laura Benedict turns her unique voice in suspense to this elegant scary mystery, where nothing is as it seems and one woman's truth is shattered by the hidden secrets of her past." (J.T. Ellison, New York Times best-selling author of Lie to Me)

"Compelling characters, lush settings, complex emotions-all in a clever plot and spiced with a hint of darkness... But a warning: once you pick it up, you will yield your life to the power of a great storyteller." (Carolyn Haines, best-selling author of The House of Memory)

One to add to your reading list of thrillers with

If you ever feel that you are cursed and bad things are just around the corner, then this will make you feel lucky.

Having just returned from a weekend break, Kimber returns to find the locks have been changed and someone has moved into her home. He claims to have rented the house from her and a neighbour claims she saw her let him in. This is just the latest in a line of disasters in Kimbers life.

When she was younger her father abandoned them when her sister died. Her solicitor is her ex, Gabriel, who tried to kill himself after they broke up. There is something going on at work, she’s just not sure what. Through all of this she goes to stay with a friend, Diana, which is not a success (spoilers if I tell you why).

Her life gradually spirals out of control with incidents and unexplained accidents. Who is the man in her house and why does he seem to know her? Who is trying to take away everything from her?

This is an extremely well written psychological thriller. The flashbacks are so well woven into the narrative as to feel natural and unobtrusive.
