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.

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

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

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

Should really be 3 1/2 stars

There are plots and subplots which will hook you from the very beginning (with a very likable main character to boot), so for that it would give it four stars. However, when the mystery finally unravels, it falls a little flat on its face--so for that I would have to take at least a half star away. Still, I will recommend it as an entertaining mystery. Christopher Lane, as always, does an excellent job with the narration.
