Non può essere vero. Deve esistere una spiegazione. Perché nell’imboccare la via dove abita, in un ricco e tranquillo quartiere residenziale alle porte di Londra, Fiona Lawson vede qualcosa di inconcepibile: una coppia di estranei intenta a traslocare al numero 91 di Trinity Avenue. Casa sua. La stessa in cui lei e il marito, Bram, abitano insieme ai figli a settimane alterne, da quando il tradimento di lui li ha portati alla separazione. Mentre l’amica e vicina Merle accorre in suo aiuto, i tentativi di Fiona di mettersi in contatto con quello che legalmente è ancora suo marito non danno alcun frutto. Bram è sparito, volatilizzato nel nulla. Tutto lascia pensare che abbia trovato il modo di vendere Trinity Avenue all’insaputa di Fiona, per trasferire il ricavato su un conto segreto e far perdere le sue tracce. La domanda che rimbalza ossessiva nella mente di Fiona e del lettore è una sola: perché? Segreti, ricatti, ripicche e menzogne abbondano in questo racconto a due voci di un matrimonio – e di un pugno di vite – deragliati in un tumultuoso innescarsi di reazioni a catena. Perché basta un istante per capovolgere tutto ciò che crediamo di sapere sul conto di noi stessi e di coloro che amiamo.

FROM THE BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF OUR HOUSE, WINNER OF THE CRIME & THRILLER BOOK OF THE YEAR AWARD
‘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.

On a bright morning in the London suburbs, a family moves into the house they’ve just bought on Trinity Avenue.
Nothing strange about that. Except it's your house. And you didn’t sell it.
FOR BETTER, FOR WORSE.
When Fi Lawson arrives home to find strangers moving into her house, she is plunged into terror and confusion. She and her husband Bram have owned their home on Trinity Avenue for years and have no intention of selling. How can this other family possibly think the house is theirs? And why has Bram disappeared when she needs him most?
FOR RICHER, FOR POORER.
Bram has made a catastrophic mistake and now he is paying. Unable to see his wife, his children or his home, he has nothing left but to settle scores. As the nightmare takes grip, both Bram and Fi try to make sense of the events that led to a devastating crime. What has he hidden from her – and what has she hidden from him? And will either survive the chilling truth – that there are far worse things you can lose than your house?
TILL DEATH US DO PART.

MEET THE NEIGHBOURS YOU'LL LOVE TO HATE
Until Darren and Jodie move in, Lowland Way is a suburban paradise. Beautiful homes. Friendly neighbours. Kids playing out in the street. But Darren and Jodie don't follow the rules and soon disputes over loud music and parking rights escalate to threats of violence.
Then, early one Sunday, a horrific crime shocks the street. As the police go house-to-house, the residents close ranks and everyone's story is the same: They did it.
But there's a problem. The police don't agree. And the door they're knocking on next is yours.
Praise for Those People:

‘A feverish atmosphere is built up, with Candlish again skewering the peccadilloes and prejudices of her middle-class characters’ Sunday Times
'You're in for a treat!' Lisa Jewell

'Beautifully modulated and terrifically suspenseful' Washington Post
‘Twists aplenty, and such wonderful observation - I loved it' Clare Mackintosh
'An addictive, twisty page-turner about the neighbours from hell' Alice Feeney
'A delicious slice of suburban noir. I loved it' Harriet Tyce
'Candlish is a master at peeling away the veneer of middle-class respectability, and utterly nails the trials of living cheek-by-jowl with awful neighbours. You’ll be asking yourself, “How far would I go?”' heat
'Booth’s boorish presence causes sleep-deprived couples to bicker hatefully and grown siblings to become enraged with one another, until the whole community seems to turn on itself - with fatal consequences' Wall Street Journal
'A smart and twisty tale… a compelling read' Woman & Home

Up here, anything can happen.
Especially murder. . .
The Heights is a tall, slender apartment building among the warehouses of Tower Bridge, its roof terrace so discreet you wouldn’t know it existed if you weren't standing at the window of the flat directly opposite. But you are. And that’s when you see a man up there – a man you’d recognize anywhere. He’s older now and his appearance has subtly changed, but it’s definitely him.
Which makes no sense at all since you know he has been dead for over two years.
You know this for a fact.
Because you’re the one who killed him.
'The Heights has everything you could possibly wish for - tragedy, obsession, revenge and, yes, love. Another finely-crafted masterpiece from Louise Candlish' BA Paris
'There’s nothing quite so chilling as the roar of mother tiger love. Louise Candlish had my heart in my throat. Dizzily dark. Dangerous. Deadly' Jane Corry
'No one creates middle-class characters we love to hate quite like Louise Candlish. I’d expected her to do this, and to provide a great sense of place, and twists that would have been rifling through the book to see how they’d been done. What I wasn’t expecting was that this thriller of obsessive revenge and intense parental grief would tug at my heartstrings. Smart, addictive, twisting, surprising. Highly recommended' Sarah Vaughan
‘Tense, provocative and devastatingly powerful. I loved Our House but I think The Heights might be even better’ TM Logan
'A beautifully written tale of destructive obsession and revenge, with Louise’s trademark killer twist' Mark Edwards
'It twists and it turns and it twists again. The Heights by Louise Candlish is the very definition of a “just one more chapter” novel. I devoured it. And it’s full of such great writing about the ferocity of maternal love' Hannah Beckerman
'Compelling, unexpected and beautifully written' Jane Fallon

Until one day Simone sees something through the skylight she is not expecting. Something that upsets her so much she begins to plot a terrible crime…

THE ADDICTIVE PSYCHOLOGICAL SUSPENSE FROM THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THE OTHER PASSENGER
'The best book I have read all year . . . keeps you guessing until the end' 5***** READER REVIEW
'I was gripped by this book' 5***** READER REVIEW
My name is Amber Fraser. I've just moved in at Number 40, Lime Park Road. You'll think of me as a loving wife, a thoughtful neighbour and a trusted friend.
But this is a lie.
When Christy and Joe Davenport are handed the keys to Number 40 on picture-perfect Lime Park Road, it should be a dream come true.
But it's strange that the house was on the market for such a low price.
And that the previous owners, the Frasers, had renovated the entire property yet moved out within a year.
And that none of the neighbours will talk to Christy.
As her curiosity begins to give way to obsession, Christy finds herself drawn deeper into the mystery of the house's previous occupants - and the dark and shocking secret that tore the street apart . . .
'Hints of Rear Window . . . addictive and fun . . . it will keep you guessing until the end' Stylist

Eén appje kan alles veranderen…
Meg en Rick zijn druk bezig met hun vakatievoorbereidingen: morgen vertrekken ze naar een luxueus hotel op de Malediven, een kleine uitspatting om te vieren dat Rick na een periode van werkeloosheid weer een baan heeft. Ze noemen het hun tweede huwelijksreis, tien dagen lang genieten van zon, zee, strand en elkaar.
Maar dan ziet Meg bij toeval een appje binnenkomen op de telefoon van Rick, en worden de plannen radicaal gewijzigd…
Lowland Way im Süden Londons: ein Vorortparadies. Gepflegte Häuser. Freundliche Menschen. Spielende Kinder auf der Straße. Bis im Haus Nr. 1 neue Nachbarn einziehen.
Sie halten sich nicht an Regeln, ihre Musik ist zu laut, sie parken falsch – und überhaupt!
Dann erschüttert ein schreckliches Verbrechen das Viertel. Und für die Anwohner ist die Sache sonnenklar: Die haben es getan. Die haben ein Leben auf dem Gewissen. Es gibt nur ein Problem. Die Polizei glaubt ihnen nicht…
