About the Author

Fiona Cummins is an award-winning former Daily Mirror showbusiness journalist and a graduate of the Faber Academy Writing A Novel course. She lives in Essex with her family. The Neighbour is her third novel, following Rattle and The Collector.


This thriller explores typically dark territory for this author, who has a gift for tapping a rich seam of evil that underpins the surface of the every day. Superbly sinister. * Sunday Mirror *
She is the master of depicting the way the most terrifyingly grotesque and evil psychopaths inveigle their way into the lives of ordinary people [...] when writing from the perspective of ordinary people caught up in horrific events, Fiona Cummins is unbeatable. -- Jake Kerridge * Sunday Express *
Creepy as hell, and kept me guessing to the very end -- Ian Rankin
A crime novel of the very first order -- David Baldacci on The Collector
Trust me - Cummins is a keeper -- Lee Child on The Collector
An excellent read -- Martina Cole on Rattle
It's a rare debut that has this much polish. Harrowing and horrifying, head and shoulders above most of the competition -- Val McDermid on Rattle
An extraordinarily good writer. What a storyteller -- Caz Frear
The Neighbour is nerve-janglingly creepy, beautifully written and full of surprises -- Holly Seddon
[A] brilliant book. What a dark, creepy and twisted (in all senses of the word) tale! -- CJ Tudor
Fiona is the mistress of tension building and the way she weaved that tangled web of suspects and motives left me breathless. Truly magnificent. -- Jo Spain
I could not stop reading, every turned page revealing secrets, increasingly strange and fascinating [...] I loved The Neighbour, a feat of masterful plotting from one of my favourite story tellers -- Amanda Reynolds
Fiona Cummins drew me in from the very first page with her original and compelling prose. Dark, creepy and intense with brilliant characters and a clever plot with an ending I didn't see coming -- Jenny Quintana
Tension that creep creeps all the way through, but a pace and language so precise and right that it felt like I was watching a movie [...] This book will linger -- Hayley Webster
Fiona's books are so masterfully crafted and beautifully written [...] A disturbing observation of a community and the secrets hidden within it, a dark and compelling read. -- Debbie Howells
Original, compelling and oh so creepy. Stock up on the sugar because you might never dare pop next door again. -- Tammy Cohen
An original plot, brilliantly crafted with the wonderfully atmospheric storytelling that readers have come to expect from Fiona Cummins. -- Olivia Kiernan
Fiona Cummins is the queen of all things dark and wonderful, and she writes so beautifully. It creeped me the hell out and I absolutely LOVED it -- Joanna Cannon
I was enthralled from beginning to end as every page drips with threat and menace [...] Totally gripping with a cast of ghastly characters, one worse than the next. -- Liz Nugent
Kept me guessing and second guessing the whole way through. Storytelling at its best. -- Patricia Gibney
You'll be curtain twitching after reading this - a deeply unsettling and brilliantly claustrophobic novel that will have you questioning how well you know your neighbours. -- Michelle Frances
Fiona Cummins has concocted a frightening tale that's compulsive reading. I couldn't put it down, despite the fact that I started each new chapter with a creeping sense of dread and the hairs standing up on the back of my neck. -- Alison Belsham
Incredibly creepy, intense, and compelling. Excellent. -- Will Dean
Creepy, menacing genius -- C.L. Taylor
