FROM THE BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF OUR HOUSE, WINNER OF THE CRIME & THRILLER BOOK OF THE YEAR AWARD 'Prepare to be gripped; Those People is nail-bitingly tense from the first page to the last. Louise Candlish shows us the dark side of suburbia - and of ourselves' Erin Kelly `Sharp satire and a plot that builds to a roiling boil with a couple of oh-so-clever final twists in close succession: Louise Candlish is one very clever writer' Sarah Vaughan `Twists aplenty, and such wonderful observation - I loved it' Clare MackintoshYou don't like them. They're not like you.

Are you one of Those People? Until Darren and Jodie move in, Lowland Way is a suburban paradise. Beautiful homes. Friendly neighbours.

Kids playing out in the street. But Darren and Jodie don't follow the rules and soon disputes over loud music and parking rights escalate to threats of violence. Then, early one Sunday, a horrific crime shocks the street.

As the police go house-to-house, the residents close ranks and everyone's story is the same: They did it. But there's a problem. The police don't agree.

And the door they're knocking on next is yours. Praise for Louise Candlish:`Addictive, twisty and oh so terrifyingly possible' Clare Mackintosh, author of I See You `Masterfully plotted, compulsive page-turner' Laura Wilson, Guardian `Louise Candlish is a great writer; she inhaled me into her nightmarish world where everything we think we know is ripped from under our feet' Fiona Barton, author of The Widow and The Child `Such a smart idea. Twisty, warped, credible.

Brilliantly plotted and compelling. Deserves to be such a hit' Sarah Vaughan, author of Anatomy of a Scandal
