What to expect

Brought to you by Penguin.

Welcome to Willow Close, where everyone is a suspect . . .

On the day Nina and Conrad Best move into their new home in picture-perfect Willow Close a body is discovered.

Hurrying inside with their belongings, they see horrified neighbours gather by the police cordon – one of the residents has been attacked and brutally killed in the woods.

Believing someone must have seen the murderer, the police interview all the residents of the Close. They soon find out that each neighbour harbours their own secrets.

The residents of Willow Close are far from what they initially seem and strange, even dark, things happen behind their closed doors.

Nina and Conrad had thought they’d found their dream neighbourhood. But have they moved into a nightmare?
