The Neighbor

(2018)
A novel by

 
 
Two neighboring couples are caught in a dangerous tangle of betrayal and deception in this “taut, twisty psychological thriller. Totally riveting” (James Hayman, New York Times bestselling author of The Girl on the Bridge).
 
When Leah and her husband, Clay, move from Seattle to Maine, she envisions a vibrant new neighborhood packed with families—playmates for the twins and new couple friends to bond with. But while Clay works long hours to establish his brewery, Leah is left alone each day in a nearly deserted housing development where the only other occupants prefer to keep to themselves.
 
Bored and adrift, Leah finds herself watching Clarissa and Russell Gaines next door, envying their stylishly decorated home and their university careers. But Leah’s obsession with the intriguing, elegant Clarissa grows until she’s not just spying from afar but sneaking into their house, taking small objects…and reading Clarissa’s diary. It contains clues to a hidden turmoil Leah never guessed at—and a connection to a local college girl who’s disappeared.
 
Scary and disturbing with dark psychological twists and turns, it horrifies while it fascinates. I couldn’t turn away!”—Lisa Jackson, # 1 New York Times bestselling author

Praise for this book

"The Couple Next Door meets Gone Girl in this addictive thriller. Once I started reading, I couldn't stop." - Charlie Donlea

"A gloriously creepy setting—ghost town suburbia—where seemingly respectable neighbors hide dirty secrets. You're never quite sure who to believe in this dark, twisted tale." - Michelle Frances

"A taut, twisty psychological thriller. Totally riveting." - James Hayman

"His unreliable narrators weave such a dark, disturbing tale. As the tension builds, twist after twist makes this impossible to put down." - Debbie Howells

"The Neighbor is like watching a chain-reaction car wreck happening in slow motion. Scary and disturbing with dark psychological twists and turns, it horrifies while it fascinates. I couldn’t turn away!" - Lisa Jackson

"With pitch-perfect characters, Joseph Souza peels back the good manners, the good educations, and the good work ethics of suburbia in twisted, fascinating revelations of the darkness that dwells within each of us that, untended, will seethe until it explodes. Unforgettable." - Gayle Lynds

"With its not-so-reliable narrators, brilliant writing and unexpected plot twists, Joseph Souza’s The Neighbor might remind you of Gone Girl or The Girl on the Train, but this deliciously sinister thriller is a total original. You’ll get hooked early on to this addictive page-turner and find yourself reading The Neighbor with the doors double locked and the shades drawn." - Kevin O'Brien
