Publisher's summary

Forty-year-old nurse Terry Painter enjoys a solitary existence. Her tranquil life takes a turn, however, when young, vibrant Alison Simms rents the cottage behind her, bringing friendship and excitement.

But after the initial euphoric wave, Terry soon finds that the friendship that once brightened her days now has her fearing for her life! Can she reclaim her life before Alison's past catches up to them?

Critic reviews

"An ending worthy of Hitchcock....The brutal denouement will shake readers lulled by the tale's cozy trappings, but those familiar with Patricia Highsmith's particular brand of sinister storytelling will recognize the mayhem Fielding so cunningly unleashes." (Publishers Weekly)

"The author keeps the tension high and the pages turning, creating a chillingly paranoid atmosphere." (Booklist)
