A Maxim Jakubowski selected title.
Swanson's follow up to the gripping and dark The Kind Worth Killing is equally suspenseful although its characters are less obviously twisted at first sight and sports a Rear Window Hitchcockian feel to it that quickly grips you and forces you to read into the night. A London art student, still traumatised by a terrible past encounter, swaps flats with a distant cousin and moves to Boston where she gradually begins to interact with other tenants and occupants of her building as an investigation into a murder in a nearby apartment gets under way. Fragile, emotional, Kate Priddy appears, initially, to be the perfect victim-in-waiting but Swanson cleverly deflects the cliches and paces the revelations until almost all who surround her are tainted by suspicion, and the action swings between Boston and London and fear grips in a vice. Edgy all along and builds to an explosive climax. ~ Maxim Jakubowski
Her Every Fear by Peter Swanson
Following a brutal attack by her ex-boyfriend, Kate Priddy makes an uncharacteristically bold decision after her cousin, Corbin Dell, suggests a temporary apartment swap - and she moves from London to Boston. But soon after her arrival Kate makes a shocking discovery: Corbin's next-door neighbour, a young woman named Audrey Marshall, has been murdered. When the police begin asking questions about Corbin's relationship with Audrey, and his neighbours come forward with their own suspicions, a shaken Kate has few answers, and many questions of her own. Jetlagged and emotionally unstable, her imagination playing out her every fear, Kate can barely trust herself. so how can she trust any of the strangers she's just met? In the tradition of such greats as Gillian Flynn and Harlan Coben, Patricia Highsmith and James M. Cain, Her Every Fear is a scintillating novel, rich with the chilling insight and virtuoso skill for plotting that has propelled Peter Swanson to the highest ranks of thriller writing.
