It can be hard keeping secrets in a tight-knit neighbourhood.
In a tranquil, leafy suburb of ordinary streets – one where everyone is polite and friendly – an anonymous note has been left at some of the houses.
‘ I’m so sorry. My son has been getting into people’s houses. He’s broken into yours.’
Who is this boy, and what might he have uncovered? As whispers start to circulate, suspicion mounts.
And when a missing local woman is found murdered, the tension reaches 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 secrets?
Maybe you don’t know your neighbour as well as you thought you did . . .
Someone We Know is a twisty psychological thriller mixed up with very involving character drama with a great group dynamic that keeps things unexpected.
In this small community everyone is hiding something and Shari Lapena plots beautifully throwing in little curveballs along the way to keep you turning the pages.
I think this is my favourite of the novels so far due to finding the characters very relatable, both intriguing and authentic. The mystery element is done really well and it was a brilliantly entertaining read that I completed in one sitting.
