Publisher's Summary

The No. 1 Sunday Times best-seller and WHSmith Book of the Year 2016
People are capable of almost anything.
Fast-paced and addictive, The Couple Next Door announces a major new talent in thriller writing.
You never know what's happening on the other side of the wall.
Your neighbour told you that she didn't want your six-month-old daughter at the dinner party. Nothing personal, she just couldn't stand her crying.
Your husband said it would be fine. After all, you live only next door. You'll have the baby monitor, and you'll take it in turns to go back every half hour.
Your daughter was sleeping when you checked on her last. But now, as you race up the stairs in your deathly quiet house, your worst fears are realised. She's gone.
You've never had to call the police before. But now they're in your home, and who knows what they'll find there.
What would you be capable of when pushed past your limit?

"How well do we ever know those around us? The Couple Next Door will keep you glued to the pages in search of the answer. Even then, you'll never guess the truth...until it's too late." (Lisa Gardner)

Where does The Couple Next Door rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This was my first audiobook. It won't be my last.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Couple Next Door?

Realizing the plot and who was involved. Don't want to give anything away to the readers who have not yet read the book.

What about Kirsten Potter’s performance did you like?

Great narrator. Enjoyed her voice, found it quite expressive.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I'm afraid not.

Any additional comments?

This was the worst book I have read this year. The storyline is bad. The characters are one dimensional. What a waste of time
