Random House presents the unabridged downloadable audio edition of A Stranger in the House by Shari Lapena, read by Tavia Gilbert.

‘So many dizzying twists you'd better not drive after reading’ LINWOOD BARCLAY

The electrifying new thriller from Shari Lapena, author of the Sunday Times bestseller, The Couple Next Door.

'Smart, twisty and compulsive. Suspense and suspicion accumulate relentlessly, toying with your expectations and your emotions right up until the packs-a-punch ending. Don’t miss it, and don’t expect to be able to put it down' GILLY MACMILLAN

*****

Why would you run scared from a happy home?

You're waiting for your beloved husband to get home from work. You're making dinner, looking forward to hearing about his day.

That's the last thing you remember.

You wake up in hospital, with no idea how you got there. They tell you that you were in an accident; you lost control of your car whilst driving in a dangerous part of town.

The police suspect you were up to no good. But your husband refuses to believe it. Your best friend isn't so sure. And even you don't know what to believe . . .

*****

Reviews

So many dizzying twists you'd better not drive after reading The plot twists in Shari Lapena's A Stranger in the House made me shout "No!" out loud. Shari expertly traps you, confounds you and leaves you gasping at the end. More, please . . . Smart, twisty and compulsive. Suspense and suspicion accumulate relentlessly, toying with your expectations and your emotions right up until the packs-a-punch ending. Don’t miss it, and don’t expect to be able to put it down Hard to put down. A smart and twisty thriller . . . It's taut, intelligent and compelling. Expand reviews
