From the author of THE PEOPLE AT NUMBER 9, a new story of nightmare neighbours... Can you paint over the cracks in a marriage? Karen has packed up her life and is making The Move.
She's on her way to the idyllic country cottage which her husband has painstakingly renovated for her.
They're escaping the London bustle and the daily grind. And they're escaping their past. A fresh start in a beautiful, peaceful village.
It will be different here, right? But something is awry. The landscape, breathtaking by day, is eerie by night.
The longed-for peace and solitude is stifling. And the house, so artfully put together by her husband, has a strange vibe.
Now that Karen is cut off from her old friends and family, she can't help wondering if her husband has plans of his own, and that history might be repeating itself. From the author of the bestselling The People at Number 9 comes a dark and redemptive tale of a rural dream gone wrong... Praise for Felicity Everett: `An exciting, dark novel about friendship; brutally truthful and raw.' - Adele Parks `This was clever, relentless and utterly recognisable.
I absolutely loved it!' - Katie Fforde `Very occasionally, a novel that's not in the crime genre grips me as much as the best thrillers do.
The People at Number 9 held me in its vice-like grip from first page to last.
It's a fascinating analysis of an unhealthy friendship based on insecurity and delusion, and the characters are so vividly drawn that I sympathised with them and despaired of them in equal measure.' - Sophie Hannah `Excruciating yet unputdownable, this is domestic noir at its most gripping.' - Woman & Home 'A cautionary tale of what happens when you get caught up with the in-crowd... razor sharp dialogue, detail straight out of a Sunday supplement and a gimlet eye for social comedy.
The characters and the games they play are instantly recognisable to anyone who has stood at the school gates and felt slightly out of place.
I gulped it down quicker than a dirty Martini.' - Veronica Henry
