Product description


If you read Alex Marwood's The Wicked Girls, her new one - The Killer Next Door - is even better. Scary as hell. Great characters (Stephen King)

Taut, assured and reminiscent of Ruth Rendell's psychological novels, Marwood's second book more than lives up to the promise shown in her splendid debut, The Wicked Girls (Guardian)

Even better than her debut The Wicked Girls. It's a compulsive, unsettling read that will leave you wondering how well you really know your neighbours (Bella)

Utterly gripping; Marwood's ability to show the sinister side of everyday life is unparalleled (Jenny Colgan)

Both brilliantly dark and dazzlingly funny, this is crime writing at its best (Lisa Jewell)

Nasty, compelling and original, the author has done it again with her second novel (The Sun)

A haunting and thrilling read that will have you gripped throughout, The Killer Next Door is a thought-provoking book, that will play on your mind and stay with you for days and will have you looking at your neighbours in a different light! (

Echoes of Ruth Rendell (or, indeed, Barbara Vine), although Marwood's writing is grittier (Killing Crime Time Blog)

Every bit as gripping as her much-praised debut The Wicked Girls (Crime Fiction Lover Blog)

Engrossing, chilling, and packed with suspense (Crime Thriller Girl Blog)

A clever, beautifully crafted novel that will forever shake your view of bedsit suburbia . . . Disturbing, dark . . . A psychological thriller of the highest order (Crime Review blog)

A master of contemporary British suspense (Booklist)

Marwood has turned out not just a spooky, blood-and-guts thriller, but a cannily observant novel that exposes social fissures while delivering a modicum of hope (The Boston Globe)

Book Description

The electrifying new thriller from the author of the Edgar-Award winning sensation The Wicked Girls, Alex Marwood.
