Growing up, Kate Priddy was always a bit neurotic, experiencing momentary bouts of anxiety that exploded into full blown panic attacks after an ex-boyfriend kidnapped her and nearly ended her life. When Corbin Dell, a distant cousin in Boston, suggests the two temporarily swap apartments, Kate, an art student in London, agrees, hoping that time away in a new place will help her overcome the recent wreckage of her life. But soon after her arrival at Corbin's grand apartment on Beacon Hill, Kate makes a shocking discovery: his next-door neighbor, a young woman named Audrey Marshall, has been murdered.

What I liked about the book was the mood and the way it’s written. The element of mystery is excellent. You’re even doubting Kate and questioning her sanity because of certain events in the book. When you realize it’s all real the creep factor greatly increases.

The characters in this book are well done. You do feel for Corbin but at the same time, he brought it upon himself. (Doesn’t anyone just TALK about it anymore? It’s all about just lashing out and getting revenge???!!) And Henry, he’s just a special character all in his own group. I’ve read some pretty hateful characters...but Henry’s pretty high up on the list. He’s got some pretty serious issues and he’s overall a pretty unlikable character. But, to his credit he’s devious. Devious to the point where he could be a runner for villain of the year. His planning and methods were crafty and calculating. Imagining having someone like Henry in your vicinity is enough to get the hairs on your arms rise.

The plot was well done and flowing nicely. There is also a good amount of backstory throughout the novel so it helps you understand the actions and behavior of the characters, and that’s what I really enjoyed the most of this book. The climax of the novel was also very well done and everything comes to a perfect closing towards the end.

Twisty, creepy, stalkery. Perfect thriller! Love his writing style. Get comfortable....on the edge of your seat!!!!
My first read of 2018 so everything else has a huge bar to compare to. Lock your doors, look over your shoulder and when you think you know...you probably don’t! Cheers!

In the tradition of an Alfred Hitchcock story of suspense/thriller. Katy and Corbin switch homes in the middle of murder mystery that plays on every fear Katy ever had. Both have a dark past

I am going to say ditto to the other comments. I enjoyed this book so much that I may read it again. It was so full of twists and turns. I couldn't figure out who the bad guy was. And this to me is the best kind of mysteries. I will look for this author.

I didn't want to put this book down! I enjoyed how the author went in depth with each main character's background so you could understand their motivations. I also liked the different perspectives of the same events. Fans of Rear Window will like this thriller.

SO good. This is what I think of when it comes to a psychological thriller and it had me hooked from the first few pages. Interestingly enough, you find out the identify of the killer a little over halfway through and the rest of the story is dedicated to unraveling the events. This story is told through perspectives of different people which I really enjoyed. I've read quite a few reviews where people didn't like the ending because the story slows down or because you already know the killer at this point, but I didn't feel that way at all. You still wanted to race through the pages and I did just that. Do not hesitate with this one!

An atmospheric and looming thriller about a young London woman who swaps apartments with a distant cousin from Boston. While getting to know her new neighbors, she realizes her cousin was fleeing something unsaid - and now she's a target of a stalker. Swanson delivers the chills.
