FROM THE BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF OUR HOUSE, WINNER OF THE CRIME & THRILLER BOOK OF THE YEAR AWARD
'One of this summer's most anticipated thrillers' Stylist
'Scarily plausible' Observer

'Guaranteed to have you vibrating with impotent fury … a carefully crafted psychological thriller’ Laura Wilson, Guardian
‘A feverish atmosphere is built up, with Candlish again skewering the peccadilloes and prejudices of her middle-class characters’ Sunday Times


MEET THE NEIGHBOURS YOU'LL LOVE TO HATE

Until Darren and Jodie move in, Lowland Way is a suburban paradise. Beautiful homes. Friendly neighbours. Kids playing out in the street. But Darren and Jodie don't follow the rules and soon disputes over loud music and parking rights escalate to threats of violence.

Then, early one Sunday, a horrific crime shocks the street. As the police go house-to-house, the residents close ranks and everyone's story is the same: They did it.

But there's a problem. The police don't agree. And the door they're knocking on next is yours. 

'You're in for a treat!' Lisa Jewell
'Those People is nail-bitingly tense from the first page to the last. Louise Candlish shows us the dark side of suburbia – and of ourselves' Erin Kelly
‘Sharp satire and a plot that builds to a roiling boil with a couple of oh-so-clever final twists’ Sarah Vaughan
'Beautifully modulated and terrifically suspenseful' Washington Post
‘Twists aplenty, and such wonderful observation - I loved it' Clare Mackintosh
'An addictive, twisty page-turner about the neighbours from hell' Alice Feeney
'A delicious slice of suburban noir. I loved it' Harriet Tyce 
'Candlish is a master at peeling away the veneer of middle-class respectability, and utterly nails the trials of living cheek-by-jowl with awful neighbours. You’ll be asking yourself, “How far would I go?”' heat
'Booth’s boorish presence causes sleep-deprived couples to bicker hatefully and grown siblings to become enraged with one another, until the whole community seems to turn on itself - with fatal consequences' Wall Street Journal
'A smart and twisty tale… a compelling read' Woman & Home
'A devilishly good thriller… with a wicked ending. Loved it' Laura Kemp
'Utterly gripping' RED
'A read that will make you rejoice for nice neighbours!' Prima
'Louise Candlish captures the mores of middle-class life and our worst, curtain-twitching tendencies like no one else' RED, online 
'Full of marvellously toxic characters' Best
'An unsettling, darkly funny, artfully composed novel about the way we live now' Irish Times

Genre: Mystery
