Publisher's Summary

In a quiet suburban neighborhood, in the house next door, a family is brutally murdered for no apparent reason. You can't help thinking, "That could have been us". And you start to wonder, "What if we're next?" That's the question Jim and Ellen Cutter are asking, and the answers aren't reassuring. Promise Falls isn't the kind of community where a family is shot to death in their own home. But then how well did the Cutters really know their neighbors - or the darker secrets of their small town? They don't have to look any further than their own marriage to know that things aren't always what they seem. Now the Cutters and their son, Derek, must face the unthinkable: that the murderer isn't just stalking too close to home but is inside it already.

Plots and subplots galore

What made the experience of listening to Too Close to Home the most enjoyable?

Lots of twists, multiple subplots, definitely must pay attention to story. Well written and narrated. Good story.

What about Christopher Lane’s performance did you like?

Christopher Lane did a great performance. Easy character differentiation with his tones and cadence.

Any additional comments?

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. With all the underlying plots and motives the ending was a total surprise. Worth the $ or credit.

What Happened to the Family Next Door?

This is a good mystery and is easy to follow.
Linwood Barclay is an excellent story teller, and this one was enjoyable, interesting, and had a good amount of mystery. What happened to the family next door? The story had one glaring downside in that it took too long for the main characters to figure out that it's not about the family next door.... mistaken identity.

It started off somewhat slow, but once the pace picked up, the pace remained consistently at an entertaining level. There are lots of twists and turns, some predictable and others not so much. A few surprises and unexpected twists.

Christopher Lane is a top notch narrator ... one of audible's best. A good narrator bring life to the words telling the story, and helps elevate an average story to an above average story.
