Maybe you don’t know your neighbours as well as you thought you did. . . .

“I’m so sorry. My son has been getting into people’s houses. He’s broken into yours.”

In a quiet, leafy suburb in upstate New York, a teenager has been sneaking into houses–and into the owners’ computers as well. Learning their secrets, and maybe sharing some of them, too.

Who is he, and what might he have uncovered? As whispers start to circulate, suspicion mounts. And when a woman down the street is found murdered, the tension reaches its breaking point. Who killed her? Who knows more than they’re telling? And how far will all these very nice people go to protect their little secrets?

In this neighbourhood, it’s not just the husbands and wives who play games. Here, everyone in the family has something to hide.



I have read (and LOVED) all of Shari Lapena’s novels and was thrilled to hear about this newest release! I couldn’t wait to get my hands on a copy. I was not disappointed. I loved how this book was filled with suspicions, lies, deception, betrayal and secrets. Spouses keeping secrets from one another, parents keeping secrets from their children and vice versa. Everyone has something to hide and I loved that about this book!

Imagine receiving a note in your home anonymously from someone claiming their son has broken into houses in the community and that yours might be one of them. I mean what would you think? What would you do? I love how no one in this novel is innocent, everyone has something to hide, and all the adults are connected in some sinister way. I love it!
