Product Description

Review

A neatly characterised, thoroughly atmospheric Hitchcockian thriller. (Mail on Sunday, Thriller of the Month)

Another read-in-one-sitting novel from the best-selling Swanson. (Metro)

A stylish story, cleverly told from multiple points of view. Slick and grisly. (Sunday Mirror)

Once again Peter Swanson delivers a thriller that shoves the recent wave of domestic noirs into the shade. (Reader's Digest)

A masterclass in psychological insight and intricate plotting... beware those with a nervous disposition! (Lancashire Evening Post)

Swanson's follow up to the gripping and dark The Kind Worth Killing is equally suspenseful... Edgy all along it builds to an explosive climax. (Lovereading)

Readers won’t anticipate the Hitchcockian twists and turns in this standout suspense tale. (Washington Post)

Swanson, who also wrote The Girl with a Clock for a Heart and The Kind Worth Killing, has quickly established himself as today’s master of the suspense novel. (Otto Penzler)

Chapter by chapter, the text peels back layers to reveal a pathological relationship between Kate’s cousin and a long-ago acquaintance that’s reminiscent of a folie à deux out of Patricia Highsmith. (Wall Street Journal)

A compulsive thriller. (St. Louis Post Dispatch)

Psychological thriller devotees should block time to read Swanson’s novel in one sitting, preferably in the daylight. (Library Journal, starred review)

Swanson’s third thriller cracks to life in the opening pages... an excellent whodunit with a magical appeal for the mystery thriller lover. (Seattle Book Review)

Book Description

The bestselling author of The Kind Worth Killing returns with an electrifying psychological thriller - as tantalizing as Rear Window or The Girl on the Train.

Format: Kindle Edition
I have never read anything by Peter Swanson before but, after reading this, I am certain he is on my ‘must read’ list. The novel begins with Kate Priddy, who has left London for a six month apartment swap with a cousin she has never met – Corbin Dell – in Boston. From the beginning, we are aware that Kate was the victim of an event which has left her deeply traumatised, so this is a big step for her. Unfortunately, on arrival at Corbin’s beautiful apartment, she almost immediately discovers that his next door neighbour, a young woman involved in publishing, named Audrey Marshall, has been murdered.

Kate has planned to take some classes in design and illustration; drawing and sketching calms her and she is able to reproduce faces after only one meeting. At first, she meets neighbours, but all is definitely not as calm in the expensive apartment complex seems on the surface. Detective Roberta James is keen to search Corbin’s apartment, which seems to have no imprint of his life in the tidy, but devoid of any real personality, rooms. Then there is the attractive Alan Cherney, who lives in the apartment opposite Audrey Marshall’s and seemed to have an obsession with her, which reminds her uncomfortably of events in her own past. Lastly, there is the man who claims to be Audrey’s friend, who hangs about outside the apartments and approaches Kate more than once.

Trying to shake off her feelings that something is wrong and knowing that what happened to her has made her somewhat paranoid, Kate tries to settle down into normal life. However, gradually, as the story unfolds, we learn about not only Kate’s past, but also that of the other characters and realise that danger lurks in the very place that Kate has fled to, to start a new life.

I bought my copy right here on Amazon. Peter Swanson is one of those authors that gets better and better writing chilling thrillers. I love everything about this story. Kate and her cousin Corbin swap apartments. Kate travels to Boston to stay in Corbin's apartment and Corbin travels to London to stay in his cousins Kate's flat. When Kate moves into Corbin's apartment she finds out that her neighbour has been murdered. Readers are kept in suspense who actually killed the neighbour. Did Corbin kill his neighbour and then fly to London? Or could there be another explanation as who killed Audrey? A must buy its a fabulous page turner.

My first Peter Swanson novel was The Kind Worth Killing – a simply superb book that I couldn’t put down. Last year I read Swanson’s first novel The Girl With a Clock for a Heart, thinking it wouldn’t be as good – it was! So, when I saw last July that there would be a new Swanson novel in 2017, I wondered whether Her Every Fear would be a Swanson hat trick? You guessed it, I just couldn’t wait to find out.

So, what’s the book about? Kate Priddy is a pathological, uncontrollable worrier – from an early age, Kate believed if it can go wrong, it will. If it’s unlikely to go wrong, she still believes it will go wrong, with disaster round every corner. This state of mind isn’t helped when Kate is brutally attacked by a domineering and controlling ex boyfriend, so she could be best described as delicate. Surprisingly, Kate decides to “mix it up” a little by agreeing to a six month house swap with her transatlantic cousin Corbin Dell. A small London flat for a swanky Boston apartment – seems like a great idea. The stress of the journey is bad enough, but shortly after she arrives, Kate finds her neighbour Audrey Marshall has been found dead, and soon after, it’s definitely classed as murder. Kate needs to find out more about the circumstances of Audrey’s death, but as a stranger in the city who can she trust?

So, what did I think? Her Every Fear is a novel with a simple premise which Swanson has developed into a rich story with genuine panache. As I read the book I quickly realised that Kate is more than a little odd, then I met Alan Cherney – he’s a peeping tom and obsessive, who Kate is instantly attracted to. Surely this is a good clue I thought? Just as I was starting to get my head round all this, I was introduced to her cousin Corbin Dell, and yes, he’s a bit weird too.

The Kind Worth Killing was my favourite book of last year so was eager for this new release. Her Every Fear is told from multiple perspectives and is absolutely terrifying. I am a grown woman who was reading this whilst at home when my young children were sleeping and I was afraid to go upstairs until my partner got home, it spooked me that much.

Swanson is skilled in creating this unease and characters who you really shouldn't sympathise with but end up rooting for. I am normally disappointed when a novel like this reaches the denouement, however, I thought Swanson did a really good job with a fitting ending. I do think I need a year until his next offering to allow my nerves to recover.

Seriously GREAT! Gorgeously dark! I fell in love with the writing of Peter Swanson, on reading ‘The Kind Worth Killing’. Now’s he’s back with a new one to grip you, send your senses soaring and make you wonder if there is someone creeping about your house.’Her Every Fear’ is a must-read for 2017.

The story follows Kate, an English girl who has swapped apartments with Corbin, a distant cousin, and has moved to America for six months. She is has over-come trauma in her past, following an abusive relationship. Kate is still plagued with anxiety and panic attacks. It is a positive step for her to be living abroad and taking a university course. Kate becomes intrigued with the apartment next door to her. A woman has disappeared and is later found dead. The police come knocking on her door. We also have the story narrated by Corbin, a man with a few secrets of his own. What is Corbin hiding? Why is neighbour Alan watching? Is Kate safe or is she right to be slightly paranoid?

Poor Kate! She attracts terrible things. She is an evil psychopath magnet. She is also a victim of her fears. Swanson shows us Kate’s past in microscopic detail and what turned her into this bundle of nerves. It is no wonder she is happy staying in her flat, with the door bolted. Kate’s natural curiosity leads her into the mystery of the girl next door and to a spot of detective work. A murdered girl, who her distant cousin knows. A murdered girl, that Kate needs to find all about. The tension escalates, as we see Kate drawing the creepy attention of others, including a killer. It is ironic, that her worst fears start to materialise. Yes she has a right to worry. Reality kicks her in the teeth. Someone has their sights on Kate.
