‘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.

I don't think the writting was any good, I found myself wanting to skip the majority of the text and just wanting to read the dialogues between the characters.
The only reason I kept going was because of my curiosity, since I have started the book I was curious to find out what actually happened.
I was really thinking about giving the book a lower rating but when the first major twist happened the it got interesting, I actually enjoyed what came out of it and the way the story unfolded.
The title is very misleading though and it makes you think the story is something completly different, I didn't like that, although I understand that it was surely the authors intention to mislead the reader and shift our suspitions, I think that was uncalled for and irrelevant to the story.
Congratulations. I have read a few of your books now

I have to say as well that reading about my street was brill ( one of the characters place of work was here and so a lot of the book was based in and around the area I live )
Clare and Jamie more than solvent late 40’s
Melia and Kit flourishing in debt mid 20’s
And never the twain should meet
But they do via work and also via the ‘riverboat’ commute Kit and Jamie take twice daily
Their friendship blossoms but so does a game that two of them are playing, a game so evil and twisted you struggle not to baulk at the audacity of it
The story is told by Jamie over the period of a few weeks with flashbacks and the web of deceit and lies these people manage to weave is fascinatingly depraved
Its chilling, dark, tense, soooo well written and has twists that twist on themselves until the ending where
you think there cant be anymore...then there is.....
A warning that the characters will have you furious at their deception and loathing of their greed and immorality
Outstanding in every way, makes me happy to be a reader!!
My main problem was I didn't like the main character, who is a self-satisfied git who is too easily led by the glamour of youth. Also, Kit is supposed to be a hugely charismatic character, but I thought he came across as a loser. Because of that, the ending fell flat for me.
Candlish's writing is competent, and I liked her descriptions of the commute along the Thames which were well done and evocative. I also liked the philosophising about a generational desire for money and the feelings of turning 50 - they were thoughtful and insightful. However, it's not really what I would have expected from a thriller. So not bad, passed the time, but didn't make me salivate to read more like other authors such as Lisa Jewell - Sophie Hannah and Liane Moriarty have.
L.C has done it yet again folks. “The Other Passenger” tells the story of Jamie and Clare a couple in their late forties who are friends with millennials Kit and Melia. Jamie is feeling pretty smug, now that he has a season ticket to travel to work along the Thames by riverboat, avoiding the horrendous gridlock London traffic. Jamie, with Kit get the drinks in on their evening commutes home after their long days. All is well. Until the first day back after Christmas and Kit isn’t on the morning boat. Everything else seems the same. But something isn’t right. When Jamie disembarks, the police are waiting for him. Melia, Kits wife has reported him missing and another passenger has witnessed Jamie having a blazing row with Kit on the last boat home after Christmas drinks. It seems the police have reason to believe that Jamie had reasons to lash out at Kit. But he’s innocent right? Or is he? L.C’s plot devices and sharp plot twists are unmatched in her latest book “The Other Passenger”, so much so it’s taken me almost 24 hours to get my feelings together for this review. Candlish has a way of taking relatively normal people, and situations to create something so suspenseful you will not believe what happens from one page to the next. As always, you think you have worked out the story, worked out the twists, but something that L.C has mastered beautifully is the art of the unanticipated turn of events, the curveball, the bombshell which will leave you open mouthed and like me only just picking up your jaw from the floor.
What I loved most about “The Other Passenger” other than it being a welcome distraction in these dark and unprecedented times, is how different the characters were from Louise’s previous books “Our House” and “Those People” because as with a lot of authors who have enjoyed huge acclaim, it can be all too easy to recycle characters, but by now L.C knows her craft and has created a world so relatable, but so unbelievably crazy you’d have to read to believe. The age old question of “Do you know the difference between right and wrong?” is tested in many ways, the human behavior of how people will bend those rules to serve them, and justify their behavior is something I really adore about L. C’s writing style which she explores beautifully. We’re all human, and we all make mistakes. But as with everything, every action has an equal and opposite reaction. And boy, this book has plenty to offer in terms of suspense and building up one hell of a momentum until a hugely satisfying finale and epilogue.
“The Other Passenger” to conclude, is a welcome ray of light in these dark times.
