Review: The New Neighbors by Simon Lelic
Paperback: 352 pages
Publisher: Berkley (April 10, 2018)
The Girl Before meets The Couple Next Door in a Hitchcockian thriller about a couple who moves into their dream neighborhood only to discover nothing is as it seems...
The perfect couple. The perfect house. The perfect crime.
Londoners Jack and Syd found their dream home: lots of space, a great location, and a friendly owner who wanted a young couple to have it.
Everything is exactly what they hoped for when they move in--except Jack makes a disturbing discovery in the attic, and Syd begins to wonder about the girl next door. And they each keep the other in the dark.
Because someone has just been killed outside their back door, and now the police are watching them.
This is their chance to prove they're innocent--or to get away with murder.
Whose story do you believe?
About the Author
Simon Lelic was born in 1976 and has worked as a journalist in the UK and currently runs his own business in Brighton, England, where he lives with his wife and two sons.
The New Neighbors is the first book of Simon Lelic's that I have read. I found it to be a really enjoyable read. It is a twisty thriller that kept me guessing until the end. The story was so hard to put down because the author alternated between the two narrators...Syd and Jack. There was so much happening and the back and forth created a sense of urgency that helped you to just keep reading! You need to know what is going to happen next!
