When Londoner Kate Priddy reluctantly agrees to a six-month apartment swap with an American second cousin she’s never met, she arrives in Boston overloaded with luggage—and more than her share of emotional baggage. She soon learns that her luxurious apartment building is the scene of a homicide and her anxiety accelerates as she regrets her bold transatlantic move. Kate’s relentless sleuthing leads her to doubt her cousin Corbin’s innocence when she makes a few questionable discoveries in his apartment. As Kate pushes herself to acclimate to her new American life, she uncovers more inconsistencies related to the homicide and further suspects Corbin and several other people in her new social circle. Is she simply an anxious woman with an overactive imagination, or is there something sinister lurking in her world?
VERDICT Psychological thriller devotees should block time to read Swanson’s (The Kind Worth Killing) novel in one sitting, preferably in the daylight. Readers can expect the hairs on their necks to stand straight up as they are consumed with a full-blown case of heebie-jeebies. [See Prepub Alert, 7/18/16.]
