I loved it! A brilliantly original premise, delivered with panache. (Clare Mackintosh, author of I See You)
Has 'movie adaptation' written all over it. It has an alluring location, a fragile yet resilient protagonist and a thoroughly Hitchcockian storyline, replete with the requisite false starts and plot twists. High tension, lightning-fast pacing and psychological drama in spades. (BookPage)
Peter Swanson's third thriller cracks to life in the opening pages. His characters are engaging, and the reader is treated to multiple points of view... The payoff for the reader is an excellent whodunit with a magical appeal for the mystery thriller lover. (Seattle Book Review)
A compelling tale of murder and deception that keeps the reader turning pages. Kate is a sympathetic heroine who has seen too much, but rises above it. (Authorlink.com)
The skillfully conjured Boston winter creates the perfect atmosphere for breeding paranoia, which kicks into high gear with the introduction of Cherney's Rear Window-like flashbacks. Swanson . introduces a delicious monster-under-the-bed creepiness to the expected top-notch characterization and steadily mounting anxiety. (Booklist, starred review)
Psychological thriller devotees should block time to read Swanson's (The Kind Worth Killing) novel in one sitting, preferably in the daylight. Readers can expect the hairs on their necks to stand straight up as they are consumed with a full-blown case of heebie-jeebies. (Library Journal, starred review)
I read a lot of mysteries, and Peter Swanson's The Kind Worth Killing was one of my absolute favorites of the last several years. This new book doesn't quite hit that mark, but it's still a cracking good read. There is a heroine with a well-earned case of anxiety, newly arrived in a drafty Boston apartment. There is a neighbor's cat wandering in and out of this apartment, sometimes when the protagonist is sure, just sure the front door was closed and locked. Oh, and there is also the discovery of a body in another apartment across the hall. Her Every Fear has atmosphere and tension to spare. (Shannon Rhoades NPR Best Books 2017)

Recovering from a traumatic experience Kate does a house swap with her cousin (who she's never met) and finds herself in a beautiful Boston apartment for six months. All is idyllic until she wakes up on the first morning to discover her next door neighbour has been murdered. Did her absent cousin Corbin have anything to do with it?
This is a multi viewpoint novel which I usually love but I agree with other reviewers that it got a bit tedious reliving the same scenes from everyone's perspective. There are times the reader doesn't need to know absolutely everything that's happened. I particular found it irritating that as a reader we had to endure the characters finding out exactly what the murderer had done at the end when we'd already had it related to us first hand.
I feel I'm being a bit harsh, it had a decent plot and some good ideas but the delivery was wrong for me and I finished it because I hate giving up on a book rather than enjoyment.
I feel the theme of the story is unusual and makes for an excellent read. I really enjoyed this book - it is an absolute page-turner which would adapt well to the small screen as a mini series (like Dr Foster, Broadchurch, and the like).
It was fantastic. The books never lose pace, I found myself staying awake far later than is sensible just to cram a few more chapters in. The characters are really interesting and the story is so developed. I had to shine my kindle light around the room to check for the bogeyman a couple of times because I scared myself silly, the book is quite creepy at points.
It was just another really great read and I can't wait for the next one.
