A woman prone to panic attacks in the aftermath of a violent kidnapping relocates to a cousin's home in Boston, where a neighbor's murder embroils her in speculation about her cousin's nature and the intentions of an appealing stranger.

HARPERCOLL

The author of the wildly popular The Kind Worth Killing returns with an electrifying and downright Hitchcockian psychological thriller—as tantalizing as the cinema classics Rear Window and Wait Until Dark—involving a young woman caught in a vise of voyeurism, betrayal, manipulation, and murder.

The danger isn’t all in your head . . .

Growing up, Kate Priddy was always a bit neurotic, experiencing momentary bouts of anxiety that exploded into full blown panic attacks after an ex-boyfriend kidnapped her and nearly ended her life. When Corbin Dell, a distant cousin in Boston, suggests the two temporarily swap apartments, Kate, an art student in London, agrees, hoping that time away in a new place will help her overcome the recent wreckage of her life.

But soon after her arrival at Corbin’s grand apartment on Beacon Hill, Kate makes a shocking discovery: his next-door neighbor, a young woman named Audrey Marshall, has been murdered. When the police question her about Corbin, a shaken Kate has few answers, and many questions of her own—curiosity that intensifies when she meets Alan Cherney, a handsome, quiet tenant who lives across the courtyard, in the apartment facing Audrey’s. Alan saw Corbin surreptitiously come and go from Audrey’s place, yet he’s denied knowing her. Then, Kate runs into a tearful man claiming to be the dead woman’s old boyfriend, who insists Corbin did the deed the night that he left for London.

When she reaches out to her cousin, he proclaims his innocence and calms her nerves . . . until she comes across disturbing objects hidden in the apartment—and accidently learns that Corbin is not where he says he is. Could Corbin be a killer? And what about Alan? Kate finds herself drawn to this appealing man who seems so sincere, yet she isn’t sure. Jetlagged and emotionally unstable, her imagination full of dark images caused by the terror of her past, Kate can barely trust herself . . . So how could she take the chance on a stranger she’s just met?

Yet the danger Kate imagines isn’t nearly as twisted and deadly as what’s about to happen. When her every fear becomes very real.

And much, much closer than she thinks.

Told from multiple points of view, Her Every Fear is a scintillating, edgy novel rich with Peter Swanson’s chilling insight into the darkest corners of the human psyche and virtuosic skill for plotting that has propelled him to the highest ranks of suspense, in the tradition of such greats as Gillian Flynn, Paula Hawkins, Patricia Highsmith, and James M. Cain.

I am going to say ditto to the other comments. I enjoyed this book so much that I may read it again. It was so full of twists and turns. I couldn't figure out who the bad guy was. And this to me is the best kind of mysteries. I will look for this author.

I didn't want to put this book down! I enjoyed how the author went in depth with each main character's background so you could understand their motivations. I also liked the different perspectives of the same events. Fans of Rear Window will like this thriller.

SO good. This is what I think of when it comes to a psychological thriller and it had me hooked from the first few pages. Interestingly enough, you find out the identify of the killer a little over halfway through and the rest of the story is dedicated to unraveling the events. This story is told through perspectives of different people which I really enjoyed. I've read quite a few reviews where people didn't like the ending because the story slows down or because you already know the killer at this point, but I didn't feel that way at all. You still wanted to race through the pages and I did just that. Do not hesitate with this one!

An atmospheric and looming thriller about a young London woman who swaps apartments with a distant cousin from Boston. While getting to know her new neighbors, she realizes her cousin was fleeing something unsaid - and now she's a target of a stalker. Swanson delivers the chills.
