From a domestic noir to a suspicious missing persons case and a family forced into hiding, The House Next Door is packed with three suspenseful stories

Three chilling stories from the world's bestselling thriller writer

The House Next Door (with Susan DiLallo):
Married mother of four Laura Sherman was thrilled when her new neighbour invited her on some errands. But a few quick tasks became a long lunch – and now things could go too far with a man who isn't what he seems...

The Killer's Wife (with Max DiLallo): Six girls have gone missing. Detective McGrath knows the only way to find them is to get close to the suspect's wife... maybe too close.

The Witnesses (with Brendan DuBois): The Sanderson family has been forced into hiding after one of them stumbled upon a criminal plot. Or so they think. No one will answer their questions. And the terrifying truth may come too late...
