FROM THE BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF OUR HOUSE, WINNER OF THE CRIME & THRILLER BOOK OF THE YEAR AWARD
‘Absolutely brilliant… An exceptionally exciting, mysterious book – we both loved it’ Richard & Judy
It all happens so quickly. One day you're living the dream, commuting to work by riverbus with your charismatic neighbour Kit in the seat beside you. The next, Kit hasn't turned up for the boat and his wife Melia has reported him missing.
When you get off at your stop, the police are waiting. Another passenger saw you and Kit arguing on the boat home the night before and the police say that you had a reason to want him dead. You protest. You and Kit are friends - ask Melia, she'll vouch for you. And who exactly is this other passenger pointing the finger? What do they know about your lives?
No, whatever danger followed you home last night, you are innocent, totally innocent.

Fiona et Bram Lawson pensaient s'être séparés " intelligemment ". Ils avaient, en tout cas, trouvé un accord : ils habiteraient à tour de rôle avec leurs enfants dans leur belle demeure de Trinity Avenue, dans le sud de Londres. Mais l'histoire a mal tourné. Très mal tourné.
Un jour d'hiver, en rentrant chez elle, Fiona tombe sur des déménageurs. Tous ses meubles ont disparu, il y a des gens dans sa maison – un couple qu'elle n'a jamais vu lui annonce qu'il en est le nouveau propriétaire. Fiona essaie immédiatement de joindre Bram, mais son numéro est hors service. Et ses enfants, eux aussi, sont introuvables. Cauchemar éveillé ? Cela ne fait que commencer !
Entre Desperate Housewives et Les Apparences, Chez nous est un thriller redoutablement addictif, qui tient son lecteur en haleine jusqu'à la dernière page.

MEET THE NEIGHBOURS YOU'LL LOVE TO HATE
Until Darren and Jodie move in, Lowland Way is a suburban paradise. Beautiful homes. Friendly neighbours. Kids playing out in the street. But Darren and Jodie don't follow the rules and soon disputes over loud music and parking rights escalate to threats of violence.
Then, early one Sunday, a horrific crime shocks the street. As the police go house-to-house, the residents close ranks and everyone's story is the same: They did it.
But there's a problem. The police don't agree. And the door they're knocking on next is yours.

THE GRIPPING, TWISTY PSYCHOLOGICAL SUSPENSE FROM THE AUTHOR OF RICHARD & JUDY BESTSELLER THE OTHER PASSENGER
'A novel that redefines the term "unputdownable"' HEAT
One summer can change everything . . .
In the heady swelter of a suburban summer, the Elm Hill lido opens.
For teacher Natalie Steele, the school holidays are always spent with her husband Ed and daughter Molly. But not this year.
Despite Molly's extreme phobia of water, Natalie is drawn to the lido and its dazzling social scene, led by glamorous Lara Channing. Soon she's spending long days with Lara at the pool and intimate evenings at her home.
Real life, and the person she used to be, begins to feel very far away.
But is the new friendship everything it seems?
Or has Natalie been swept dangerously out of her depth?

My name is Amber Fraser. I've just moved in at Number 40, Lime Park Road. You'll think of me as a loving wife, a thoughtful neighbour and a trusted friend.
But this is a lie.
When Christy and Joe Davenport are handed the keys to Number 40 on picture-perfect Lime Park Road, it should be a dream come true.
But it's strange that the house was on the market for such a low price.
And that the previous owners, the Frasers, had renovated the entire property yet moved out within a year.
And that none of the neighbours will talk to Christy.
As her curiosity begins to give way to obsession, Christy finds herself drawn deeper into the mystery of the house's previous occupants - and the dark and shocking secret that tore the street apart . . .
