Such A Quiet Place is a slow-burning locked-room mystery that's filled with secrets, lies and drama. It's beautifully written, haunting and compelling.
Such A Quiet Place is a slow-burning mystery, delving deep into the heart of a small, closed community that was shocked and rocked 18 months earlier by the murder of two residents. When I wasn't reading the book, I was thinking about it, visualising the location, in particular, thanks to the author's vivid descriptions. Hollow's Edge is a character in itself - a perfect, seemingly safe neighbourhood that's not so perfect after all - providing the ideal setting for a locked-room mystery. The verging-on-creepy characters quietly wormed their way under my skin, each one hiding secrets behind closed doors. I didn't particularly like any of them, but I could certainly feel the tension hovering in the air, suspicion building up gradually as the book progressed, each character slowly turning on each other. Beautifully written, haunting and compelling, with a narrator who may not be as relaible as they seem, Such A Quiet Place is a psychological thriller that's filled with dark secrets, lies and drama.
From the New York Times bestselling author of The Last House Guest, a Reese's Book Club pick.
We had no warning that she would come back...
Welcome to Hollow's Edge - a picture-perfect neighbourhood where everyone has each other's backs. At least, that's how it used to be, until the night Brandon and Fiona Truett were found dead...
Two years ago, branded a grifter, thief and sociopath by her friends and neighbours, Ruby Fletcher was convicted of murdering the Truetts. Now, freed by mistrial, Ruby has returned to Hollow's Edge. But why would she come back? No one wants her there, least of all her old housemate, Harper Nash.
As Ruby's return sends shockwaves through the community, terrified residents turn on each other, and it soon becomes clear that not everyone was honest about the night the Truetts died. When Harper begins to receive threatening, anonymous notes, she realizes she has to uncover the truth before someone else gets hurt... Someone like her.
