9780143126690: The Killer Next Door

The Killer Next Door is even better [than The Wicked Girls]. Scary as hell. Great characters.” —Stephen King

Winner of the Macavity Award for Best Mystery Novel and nominated for the Anthony Award for Best Paperback Original

Alex Marwood’s new book, The Darkest Secret, is available now from Penguin Books

Everyone who lives at 23 Beulah Grove has a secret. If they didn’t, they wouldn’t be renting rooms in a sketchy South London building for cash—no credit check, no lease. It’s the kind of place you end up when you you’ve run out of other options. The six residents mostly keep to themselves, but one unbearably hot summer night, a terrible accident pushes them into an uneasy alliance. What they don’t know is that one of them is a killer. He’s already chosen his next victim, and he’ll do anything to protect his secret.

Alex Marwood’s debut novel  The Wicked Girls earned her lavish praise from the likes of Elizabeth Haynes, Laura Lippman, and Erin Kelly and received the Edgar Award. Now, Marwood’s back with a brilliant, tightly paced thriller that will keep you up at night and make you ask yourself: just how well do you know your neighbors?

“Taut, assured and reminiscent of Ruth Rendell's psychological novels, Marwood's second book more than lives up to the promise shown in her splendid debut, The Wicked Girls.” —The Guardian

Recensione:

“If you read Alex Marwood's The Wicked Girls, her new one— The Killer Next Door—is even better. Scary as hell. Great characters.” —Stephen King

“Although not as dark as Marwood’s first novel, The Wicked Girls, this psychological thriller is more macabre, in a creepy comic vein, and vividly nasty when it gets to the physical details. But in its own disturbing way, this is a story about love and friendship.” —Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review 

“Marwood’s emphatic yet pragmatic understanding of human nature at its worst and best is in equally fine form in The Killer Next Door.”—Sarah Weinman, Maclean’s

“With her sophomore outing, Marwood has turned out not just a spooky, blood-and-guts thriller, but a cannily observant novel that explores social fissures while delivering a modicum of hope.” — The Boston Globe

“Alex Marwood’s second stand-alone novel delivers a multilayered plot that succeeds as crime fiction, a gothic tale, and a village mystery—all with an edge. While some scenes are gruesome enough to give Thomas Harris pause, The Killer Next Door is lyrically insightful [and a] gripping thriller.” — The Associated Press

“Marwood keeps readers guessing which resident is the killer till the end, a nice feat in an enjoyably dark story.” — The Cleveland Plain Dealer

“[A] deliciously creepy book!” — Suspense Magazine

“Taut, assured and reminiscent of Ruth Rendell's psychological novels, Marwood's second book more than lives up to the promise shown in her splendid debut, The Wicked Girls.” — The Guardian

“Nasty, compelling and original, the author has done it again with her second novel.” — The Sun

“A taut, fascinating tale [that] not only creates a cast of memorable characters, but also ratchets up the suspense. . . . [Marwood] proves she’s got staying power in this addictive tale.” — Kirkus (starred review)

“This tightly plotted story that grabs you from the opening paragraphs and will keep you up far too late at night is highly recommended for fans of Laura Lippman, Tana French, and Gillian Flynn.” — Library Journal (starred review)

“A well-plotted ending filled with unexpected surprises.” — Publisher’s Weekly

“Marwood is emerging as a master of contemporary British suspense.” — Booklist 

“Chilling, suspenseful, and darkly comic,  The Killer Next Door is not only a terrific crime novel, but also a fascinating exploration of memorable characters, each individually lonely and secretive, and yet inextricably tied to one another by circumstance.” —Alafair Burke, author of  All Day and a Night

The Killer Next Door unfolds with tantalizing precision to reveal the lives and secrets of a group of boarders in a run-down apartment house—one whose secret is far darker than the rest.” —Sara J. Henry, author of  Learning to Swim
