"We never heard anything the night our neighbors were killed."

In a quiet suburb, in a house only one door away, there is a Family brutally murdered for no apparent reason. And you think: * It could be us. * And you wonder: What if we`re next?

Linwood Barclay, from the magazine Acclaimed author of No Time for Goodbye , brings terror closer than ever in a murder thriller where we feel safer. Promise Falls is not the kind of community where a family is shot and killed in their own home. But that`s exactly what happened to the Langleys on a sweltering summer night, and no one in this small New York state town is more shocked than their neighbors Jim and Ellen Cutter. They occasionally went to the barbecue and their son Derek was friends with Langley`s boyfriend, Adam; but how well did they really know their neighbors?

This is the question that Jim Cutter asks, and the answers he gets are not reassuring. Albert Langley was a successful and respected criminal lawyer, but was he so good at getting rid of criminals that he fell victim to revenge - a debt that even his innocent family paid in blood? From the criminally corrupt mayor of the city to the tragic suicide of a talented student a decade earlier, Promise Falls has more than its secrets. And Jim Cutter, a failed landscape artist and artist, doesn`t need to look beyond his own home and his wife Ellen`s past to know that things aren`t always what they seem. But not even Jim and Ellen know their son was in the Langleys` house the night the family was murdered.

Suddenly the Cutters are faced with the unthinkable: that a killer doesn`t just you get too close to the house, but it`s already inside. Because the Langleys weren`t the first to die and they won`t be the last.
