There have been so many psychological thrillers published after the success of Gone Girl. Every time a new one is published I am so interested, I read the summary and add it to my list. Last week, a reader texted me a photo of the book The Couple Next Door, and I knew I had to share it. First of all the title is brilliant. Who at one point or another has not been intrigued with the people next door? It is such an American phenomenon. For me it started with the older twin sisters who lived next door to us growing up. They could not drive and walked everywhere dressed alike. VERY intriguing! The plot of this story goes like this....
Anne and Marco Conti seem to have it all—a loving relationship, a wonderful home, and their beautiful baby, Cora. But one night when they are at a dinner party next door, a terrible crime is committed. Suspicion immediately focuses on the parents. But the truth is a much more complicated story.
Inside the curtained house, an unsettling account of what actually happened unfolds. Detective Rasbach knows that the panicked couple is hiding something. Both Anne and Marco soon discover that the other is keeping secrets, secrets they've kept for years.
What follows is the nerve-racking unraveling of a family—a chilling tale of deception, duplicity, and unfaithfulness that will keep you breathless until the final shocking twist.
Does this not sound incredible? I feel like it might be one that we cannot put down. For more information on this book or to purchase, click HERE.
