Another awesome book from Peter Swanson! After finishing "Those Worth Killing", I was so impressed with this author that I couldn't wait to read another one of his books. "Her Every Fear" is a fantastic book, and I was immediately hooked on the characters and the story. Peter Swanson does an amazing job enabling the reader to understand why the "bad guy" is bad. The characters are so well described that the reader is able identify things that happened in each character's life that most likely caused them to become who they are; to become the "bad guy". I'm starting "The Girl with a Clock for a Heart" next, and I'm excited to meet these characters and read their story. I hope that Peter Swanson is ready to publish another book soon...very soon!! He is one of the best mystery authors I have ever read.
I found this thriller intense and emotional .
HER EVERY FEAR by Peter Swanson is a riveting and suspenseful mystery, which may make you suspicious of everyone you meet. Set in both Boston and London, it weaves the lives of the main characters into a web of anxiety, fear and distrust. The story takes place over a few days and starts out in Kate Priddy's point of view (POV), adding other characters' POVs as it goes along. Anxiety-ridden Kate and her second cousin Corbin Dell have switched houses, as Corbin needs to be in London six months for his job. Shortly after Kate arrives at her cousin's condo in Boston, the next-door neighbor is found dead. Did Corbin kill the neighbor right before he left for his flight to London? Or was it the guy whose apartment window looked into the neighbor's window? Or could it be the neighbor's ex-boyfriend from college? Kate knows strange things are occuring around her and fears she's next. Even though I felt that the killer was inferred before the final traumatic scene, the interplay between the characters and the intensity of the plot kept me captivated throughout the story. The author is a master in writing suspense and creating tense scenes, and readers will be engrossed in this novel to the very end. * An e-galley was provided by William Morrow & Edelweiss for an honest review.
