AN INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER!

One of USA Todays top 100 books to read while stuck at home social distancing 

No one does suburban paranoia like Shari Lapenathis slowly unfurling nightmare will have you biting your nails until the end. 
Ruth Ware, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Woman in Cabin 10

The new domestic suspense novel from the New York Times bestselling author of The Couple Next Door, A Stranger in the House, and An Unwanted Guest, Shari Lapena


Maybe you dont know your neighbors as well as you thought you did. . .

This is a very difficult letter to write. I hope you will not hate us too much . . .  My  son broke into your home recently while you were out.


In a quiet, leafy suburb in upstate New York, a teenager has been sneaking into houses
and into the owners
computers as well
learning their secrets, and maybe sharing some of them, too.

Who is he, and what might he have uncovered? After two anonymous letters are received, whispers start to circulate, and suspicion mounts. And when a woman down the street is found murdered, the tension reaches the breaking point. Who killed her? Who knows more than they're telling? And how far will all these very nice people go to protect their own secrets?

In this neighborhood, it
s not just the husbands and wives who play games. Here, everyone in the family has something to hide . . .

You never really know what people are capable of.

Praise for Someone We Know:

Poised and chilling.  
The Wall Street Journal

Clever.
USA Today

No-one does suburban paranoia like Shari Lapena this slowly unfurling nightmare will have you biting your nails until the end.
Ruth Ware, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Woman in Cabin 10

Slyly plotted . . . Lapena skillfully maximizes suspense with her dual story lines that eventually collide, as well as some deft misdirection . . . Many fans of domestic suspense will be satisfied.
Publishers Weekly

Highly suspenseful . . . Sure to delight fans of Liane Moriarty and Louise Candlish.  
Booklist

This book is non-stop twists and turns. Shari Lapena will leave your head spinning as you try and make sense of the lies surrounding the families in this neighborhood. And just when you think you ve figured it out, you re probably wrong. Absolutely recommend!
Suspense Magazine

Someone We Know is a tour de force of thriller writing. Shari Lapena proves yet again that she is the mistress of the pacy plot, cliff-edge tension and menacing suburban claustrophobia. Fans will be delighted and if you haven t read her books yet, then why on earth not?  
Gilly Macmillan, New York Times bestselling author of The Nanny

Praise for  An Unwanted Guest:

A gripping mystery perfect for fans of Agatha Christie.  
Good Housekeeping

Proving that time periods may change but people do not, Lapena delivers a solid whodunit with an ending that would make Dame Christie proud.  
USA Today

Another nail-biter perfect for an all-nighter.  
Entertainment Weekly

A new thriller that will give you serious Agatha Christie vibes . . . If you re one of the many people who counts [And Then There Were None] among their favorite books, you will love An Unwanted Guest. . . . A deftly crafted and expertly paced thriller that will keep readers guessing (and terrified) until the very end.  
Bustle

This compelling and realistic modern take on the country-house mystery will gain new fans for the author and is definitely one to hand to devotees of Agatha Christie (and her modern interpreter, Sophie Hannah).
Booklist

An intriguing cast, an isolated location, a raging storm and the threat of death in every dark corner: An Unwanted Guest reads like Agatha Christie with a shot of adrenaline. Clear your desk before you start it because you won t want to put it down.  
Gilly Macmillan, New York Times bestselling author of I Know You Know

Lapena has written a great whodunit, with a delicious Christie-like vibe. Fans of the author's first novel will want this, and anyone who savors a well-crafted murder mystery will gobble it up!  
Library Journal (starred review)

Praise for A Stranger in the House:

Lapena s A Stranger in the House will have you sleeping with the lights on for weeks.  
Bustle

Smart and suspenseful . . . you'll never see the ending coming.  
PureWow

  So much suspense. So many twists. Good luck sleeping tonight.  
HelloGiggles

So many dizzying twists you'd better not drive after reading!  
Linwood Barclay, New York Times bestselling author of Parting Shot
 
Smart, twisty and compulsive. Suspense and suspicion accumulate relentlessly, toying with your expectations and your emotions right up until the packs-a-punch ending. Don t miss it, and don t expect to be able to put it down.  
Gilly Macmillan, New York Times bestselling author of I Know You Know

A diverting page-turner."
Publishers Weekly

"Great suspense and lots of twists." 
Toronto Star

"Lapena keeps the well-developed twists churning, with each a surprise notch in this ever-evolving plot, and she continues this skillful storytelling until the stunning twist at the end . . . memorable." 
Associated Press

Praise for The Couple Next Door:

Meticulously crafted and razor sharp. The Couple Next Door lingers long after you turn the final page.  
Harlan Coben, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Fool Me Once

The twists come as fast [as] you can turn the pages.  
People

Provocative and shocking. One crime, an entire neighborhood of suspects, secrets, and lies. 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, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Find Her

I read this novel at one sitting, absolutely riveted by the story line. The suspense was beautifully rendered and unrelenting!  
Sue Grafton, New York Times bestselling author of X

Real men read women writers because of books like this. Trust me.  
Lee Child, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Make Me

A twisty, utterly riveting tale that will send readers on a wild roller-coaster ride of emotions. Shocking revelations kept me turning the pages like a madwoman.  
Tess Gerritsen, New York Times bestselling author of Playing with Fire

Expertly paced and finely crafted, The Couple Next Door is a gripping thriller of the highest order. I couldn t put it down.  
A. J. Banner, bestselling author of The Good Neighbor

Gripped me from the very beginning to the very end!  
Becky Masterman, author of Rage Against the Dying

Brilliant! This utterly riveting psychological thriller hurtles along at breakneck speed, never giving you the opportunity to catch your breath. Twisty, turny, and unputdownable.  
C. L. Taylor, bestselling author of The Lie

Exquisitely torturous tension.  
NPR.org


Where did that baby go! It s hard not to read to the end to find out, and the twists waiting there are gratifyingly clever.
USA Today

The many never-saw-them-coming twists and questionable characters . . . will keep you on the edge of your seat. First-time novelist Lapena s writing is spare and tense, and it makes The Couple Next Door a compulsive read. The last line is absolutely a killer.  
Good Housekeeping

[A] well-sculpted domestic thriller . . . highly suspenseful . . . Twists are subtly revealed with aplomb, taking the story to increasingly unpredictable levels.  
Associated Press

Shari Lapena – Someone We Know

Miss.mesmerized am 22.07.2019

Bewertet: eBook (ePUB)

Aylesford is a small community not far from New York. People know each other, are friends, have barbecues together and share their everyday problems. New to the neighbourhood are Amanda and Robert Pierce, both stunningly attractive and younger than the rest with their teenage kids. When Amanda goes missing, everybody soon blames the husband, the obvious suspect, but then, slowly, the facades of the good people start to crumble. They are not the loving husbands who go to work every day to support their beloved family, they are not the good housewives who only care for their dears and they are not the good kids of the suburbs. They all have their secrets they thought well hidden, but now it’s time for revelation. I hardly could put down Shari Lapena’s thriller since I was hooked from the first page. She has created the perfect environment for readers who enjoy a bit of schadenfreude. Those nice people who appear to be caring and concerned about the others and who are suddenly confronted with their dark sides that threaten the picture they have drawn of themselves. A great read that was not only fun to read because all of them sooner or later have to admit their misconduct, but first and foremost, because the plot was masterly woven and thus kept suspense high until the very end. It’s hard to say more about the plot without giving away too much. I liked how Lapena slowly unravels the revelations and shifts the focus from one character to the next. They all act suspiciously and at a certain point, I gave up believing any of them since it was too obvious that none of them is innocent in one way or the other. The author skilfully plays with the reader along these lines and this keeps you addicted since you eagerly want to find out what actually happened. It’s a brilliant, enthralling novel that you cannot stop reading once you’ve started.

5/5

Can't reject a surburban thriller

Bewertet: Buch (Taschenbuch)

Without arguing, I think we can all agree that Shari Lapena is the queen of writing suburban thrillers. Without a fail, she delivered this time with "Someone We Know" again. Her style of writing amazes me every time and she manages to deliver just the right amount of emotions. The story takes many twists and turns and is spun so delicately. I felt like I suspected a new person to be the murderer on every single page. With that many plot twists, one can't feel the slightest bit of boredom the whole read. Therefore, it's no wonder that the book had a tight grip on me the whole time and I could barely put it down. But let's talk about the contents of the book for a short while. The storyline starts with a teenage boy breaking into his neighbours' PCs at night. Why? Because he seeks the adrenaline. When his mother finds out, she's horrified. But she can't stop herself from informing the affected neighbours. Soon, gossip starts to arise and mount. Who is that boy? Why would he do that? And what was he searching for on these computers? Then, the corpse of a woman is being found and the tension reaches its peak. The two thrilling storylines eventually collide. A definite recommendation for anyone who's looking for an all-nighter!
