Event description

Description

Think you know your neighbours? Think your street is safe? You might want to think again, as we are hosting two of our favourite thriller writers, Louise Candlish and Fiona Cummins, who both have new novels that explore the dark side of suburban living.


Louise Candlish is the bestselling author of twelve novels including Our House, which was Waterstones Thriller of the Month last September. She will be here to tell us about her new novel, Those People, another gripping, psychological thriller with twists you won't see coming.


Those People:

You don't like them. They're not like you. Are you one of Those People?


Until Darren and Jodie move in, Lowland Way is a suburban paradise. Beautiful homes. Friendly neighbours. Kids playing out in the street. But Darren and Jodie don't follow the rules and soon disputes over loud music and parking rights escalate to threats of violence.
Then, early one Sunday, a horrific crime shocks the street. As the police go house-to-house, the residents close ranks and everyone's story is the same: They did it.


But there's a problem. The police don't agree. And the door they're knocking on next is yours.


Fiona Cummins is the award-winning author of spine-chilling novels Rattle and The Collector, and will be here to tell us about her new book, The Neighbour, her first standalone novel.


The Neighbour:

FOR SALE: A lovely family home with good-sized garden and treehouse occupying a plot close to woodland. Perfect for kids, fitness enthusiasts, dog walkers . . .

And, it seems, the perfect hunting ground for a serial killer.

On a hot July day, Garrick and Olivia Lockwood and their two children move into 25 The Avenue looking for a fresh start. They arrive in the midst of a media frenzy: they'd heard about the local murders in the press, but Garrick was certain the killer would be caught and it would all be over in no time. Besides, they'd got the house at a steal and he was convinced he could flip it for a fortune.

The neighbours seemed to be the very picture of community spirit. But everyone has secrets, and the residents in The Avenue are no exception.
