Following a brutal attack by her ex-boyfriend, Kate Priddy makes an uncharacteristically bold decision after her cousin, Corbin Dell, suggests a temporary apartment swap - and she moves from London to Boston. But soon after her arrival Kate makes a shocking discovery: Corbin's next-door neighbour, a young woman named Audrey Marshall, has been murdered. When the police begin asking questions about Corbin's relationship with Audrey, and his neighbours come forward with their own suspicions, a shaken Kate has few answers, and many questions of her own. Jetlagged and emotionally unstable, her imagination playing out her every fear, Kate can barely trust herself. so how can she trust any of the strangers she's just met? In the tradition of such greats as Gillian Flynn and Harlan Coben, Patricia Highsmith and James M. Cain, Her Every Fear is a scintillating novel, rich with the chilling insight and virtuoso skill for plotting that has propelled Peter Swanson to the highest ranks of thriller writing.
When Londoner Kate Priddy switches apartments with a cousin in Boston, she is looking forward to a fresh start. But when the body of Audrey Marshall is found in the apartment complex shortly after she moves in, she has new fears to contend with, as well as a re-awakening of traumatic memories from her past. Obsessed with the dead woman, Kate searches for the truth - just how well did her cousin know her? Questioning Audrey's friends and neighbours, the sense of creeping dread intensifies – how can Kate tell truth from lies, and who can she trust?
Tautly written and cunningly plotted, this is edge of your seat, nail-biting stuff as the tension is wound up to an almost unbearable degree – it's a genuine stay-up-till-dawn book.
