PEOPLE ARE CAPABLE OF ALMOST ANYTHING.

‘Meticulously crafted and razor-sharp. THE COUPLE NEXT DOOR lingers long after you turn the final page’ HARLAN COBEN

Fast-paced and addictive, THE COUPLE NEXT DOOR announces a major new talent in thriller writing.

You never know what's happening on the other side of the wall.

Your neighbour told you that she didn't want your six-month-old daughter at the dinner party. Nothing personal, she just couldn't stand her crying.

Your husband said it would be fine. After all, you only live next door. You'll have the baby monitor and you'll take it in turns to go back every half hour.

Your daughter was sleeping when you checked on her last. But now, as you race up the stairs in your deathly quiet house, your worst fears are realized. She's gone.

You've never had to call the police before. But now they're in your home, and who knows what they'll find there.

What would you be capable of, when pushed past your limit?

'How well do we ever know those around us? THE COUPLE NEXT DOOR will keep you glued to the pages in search of the answer. Even then, you'll never guess the truth...until it's too late' LISA GARDNER

Tot va començar en un sopar amb els veïns...

La parella del costat: «El thriller del qual tothom està parlant.» (Stylist)

La veïna et va dir que s'estimava més que no portessis la teva filla de sis mesos al sopar. No és res personal, senzillament no suporta els seus plors.

El teu marit hi va estar d'acord. Al capdavall, viviu a la casa del costat. Podíeu portar el monitor infantil per sentir si plorava i fer torns per passar-la a veure cada mitja hora.

La teva filla dormia quan hi vas anar per darrera vegada. Tanmateix, en aquest moment, mentre puges corrents les escales fins a la seva habitació, envoltada d#un silenci absolut, te n'adones que el teu pitjor malson s'ha fet realitat: la nena ha desaparegut.

Mai abans no havies hagut de trucar a la policia. Ara és a casa teva i qui sap què pot arribar a descobrir.

Què series capaç de fer quan has sobrepassat els teus límits?

Crítiques:
«Alta tensió que es manté fins a l'última, i sorprenent, pàgina.»
The Times

«Un debut demolidor i ple de suspens.»
Publishers Weekly

«Totalment fascinant, molt realista i narrada amb un estil meravellosament senzill i efectiu. No veuràs venir les sorpreses.»
Daily Mail

«Els girs arriben amb la mateixa velocitat amb què pots passar les pàgines.»
People

«Un començament impactant en un thriller executat amb mestria, ple de girs i replet de culpa, drama i engany.»
Sunday Mirror

«Una lectura que t'atrapa, amb una trama que fa que passis els fulls a tota velocitat per esbrinar què passarà a continuació.»
Grazia

«On és el bebè?! És difícil no deixar de llegir fins al final per saber-ho, i els girs que t'esperen a les darreres pàgines et sorprendran per la seva intel·ligència.»
USA Today

«Un thriller de luxe, que avança a un ritme vertiginós.»
Good Housekeeping

«Ple de suspens... Els girs es revelen subtilment, de mica en mica, i de manera contundent, cosa que du la història a nivells cada cop més alts de impredictibilitat.»
Associated Press
