Marwood has turned out not just a spooky, blood-and-guts thriller, but a cannily observant novel that exposes social fissures while delivering a modicum of hope * The Boston Globe * A master of contemporary British suspense * Booklist * A clever, beautifully crafted novel that will forever shake your view of bedsit suburbia . . . Disturbing, dark . . . A psychological thriller of the highest order * Crime Review blog * Engrossing, chilling, and packed with suspense * Crime Thriller Girl Blog * Every bit as gripping as her much-praised debut The Wicked Girls * Crime Fiction Lover Blog * Echoes of Ruth Rendell (or, indeed, Barbara Vine), although Marwood's writing is grittier * Killing Crime Time Blog * A haunting and thrilling read that will have you gripped throughout, The Killer Next Door is a thought-provoking book, that will play on your mind and stay with you for days and will have you looking at your neighbours in a different light! * Handwrittengirl.com * Nasty, compelling and original, the author has done it again with her second novel * The Sun * Both brilliantly dark and dazzlingly funny, this is crime writing at its best * Lisa Jewell * Utterly gripping; Marwood's ability to show the sinister side of everyday life is unparalleled * Jenny Colgan * Even better than her debut The Wicked Girls. It's a compulsive, unsettling read that will leave you wondering how well you really know your neighbours * Bella * Taut, assured and reminiscent of Ruth Rendell's psychological novels, Marwood's second book more than lives up to the promise shown in her splendid debut, The Wicked Girls * Guardian * If you read Alex Marwood's The Wicked Girls, her new one - The Killer Next Door - is even better. Scary as hell. Great characters * Stephen King *
