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
