Need To Know 'You won't be able to put it down!' Shari Lapena, author of THE COUPLE NEXT DOOR Synopsis

Married for ten years. Four children. She thought she knew her husband better than anyone. She was wrong. 

You get to work. Make a coffee. Turn on your computer. Your task: break into a Russian criminal's laptop and find proof that he's concealing five deep-cover agents - seemingly normal people living in plain sight. You're in. Five faces stare back at you. One of them is your husband.

If you liked THE COUPLE NEXT DOOR, try NEED TO KNOW by Karen Cleveland . . . Thrillers don't get much more twisty and turny than this one. If you don't mind staying up reading til 3am, this is the one for you. - BBC Arts and Entertainment, 'Books To Look Out For in 2018'

Impressively compelling . . . this is probably the banker among the New Year crop thanks to its sheer page-turning readability. - John Williams, Mail on Sunday

You'll devour this terrific debut like the rest of us, skipping lunch, losing sleep, turning pages until the end, where we're all left waiting for more. - JOHN GRISHAM

Karen Cleveland is the real deal - an exciting new voice in thrillers. - PATRICIA CORNWELL

Prediction: if you read chapter one, you'll read chapter two. If you read chapter two, you'll miss dinner, stay up far too late, and feel tired at work tomorrow. This is that kind of book. Superb. - LEE CHILD
