Praise for FEAR, the most original thriller of 2018 for fans of THE WOMAN IN THE WINDOW by A.J. Finn, LULLABY by Leila Slimani and ANATOMY OF A SCANDAL by Sarah Vaughan:

If you liked WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT KEVIN, try FEAR by Dirk Kurbjuweit... Claustrophobic and unsettling * BBC NEWS *
[An] uncomfortably close-to-home thriller... A powerfully disturbing read * SUNDAY TIMES CRIME CLUB *
Its layers of paranoia and memories are brilliantly done to play on every parents' deepest fears - including mine * FIONA BARTON, bestselling author of THE WIDOW *
Addictive... There's a twist at the end that is worth waiting for * INDEPENDENT *
This creepy tale of obsession will make you wonder 'what would I do?' * SUNDAY MIRROR *
FEAR shifts our moral codes. It makes us sympathetic to violent revenge, accessories to murder. Do we want the victim to survive? No, we don't. Long after I had put this book down I still didn't. A great achievement * HERMAN KOCH, bestselling author of THE DINNER *

A terrifying study of a family threatened by the tenant living downstairs * WOMAN & HOME *
FEAR grips you from the get-go. A creeping, creepy and darkly-hued tale of family, fatherhood and failure, it is also a deliciously suspenseful thriller, an intelligent investigation into guilt and a superb slice of bourgeois domestic noir * STAV SHEREZ, author of A DARK REDEMPTION *
Thought-provoking and intelligent, calling into question our own values when dealing with those on the fringes of society.. Genuinely chilling, and a compelling read * ELIZABETH HAYNES, bestselling author of INTO THE DARKEST CORNER *
FEAR is a smart, psychologically complex and morally acute fable decked out in the garb of an intricate thriller... [and] a wry, complex, at times disturbing survey of middle-class life * SYDNEY MORNING HERALD *
The most original thriller of the year * NETGALLEY *
Highly original and chilling * BOOKRIOT.COM *
