When Matt and Imogen move out of the city, they're hoping for a much-needed fresh start. Matt throws himself into his new job, but Imogen struggles to adjust to life in the suburbs. She's grateful for the kind welcome from new neighbour Nancy, and they soon become close friends.

So when Nancy makes a shocking accusation, Imogen doesn't know who to trust. This isn't the first time Matt has found himself on the wrong end of a false accusation. . . but is Nancy hiding secrets of her own?

As simmering tensions threaten to boil over, Imogen is in more danger than she realises. Can she uncover the truth before she loses everything?

A completely gripping and nail-biting thriller with a jaw-dropping twist, perfect for anyone who loved The Couple at No. 9, The Family Upstairs, Here to Stay or An Unwanted Guest.

  • John Marrs

    A fascinating and unputdownable thriller with a devious twist
  • Patricia Gibney

    I read it over two nights. . . it had a good twist at the end that I wasn't expecting
  • Victoria Selman

    I tore through this perfectly plotted tale of secrets and lies
  • James Delargy

    Loved it . . . [a] superb domestic drama that smolders the whole way through, stoked by a set of central characters who are so well imagined they really could be living next door
  • Samantha Hayes
    After the intriguing opening, the vividly-drawn characters and the situation they found themselves in had me turning the pages at speed. Several times I was shouting at my Kindle, trying to warn Imogen. With every chapter, the suspense grew until I could hardly breathe and the explosive ending had me gripped. And just when I thought I could relax and it was all over, Adam Southward blew me away with the masterful twist at the end. The Stranger Next Door has all the very best ingredients for a perfect thriller! I thoroughly recommend it
  • Elle Croft

    It was completely addictive! I was hooked from the unsettling prologue, and the relentless tension afterwards meant that I hardly put it down until I'd finished. It was deliciously frustrating to never quite know what was really happening or who to trust, and the twist at the end was genuinely (and I don't get to say this all that often) unexpected
  • Sue Watson

    A brilliant, twisty, read, that kept me reading late into the night. The writing had me on the edge of my seat pulling me in, wondering what horrific accusations Nancy was going to make next, and what secrets were going to be spilled, and not just from next door!
  • Jo Furniss

    In fast-paced chapters that keep the pages turning, The Stranger Next Door casts an eerie spell. You won't know who to trust as the surprises keep coming. Suburban Surrey just got sinister!
  • Rachel Abbott

    A complex, cleverly told thriller with so many twists and turns. I never saw the ending coming.
  • Jackie Kabler

    So sinister and so much simmering tension - and that final twist! I'm usually good at foreseeing a twist but not this time...
