About The Book:
Maybe you don't know your neighbors as well as you thought you did . . ."This is a very difficult letter to write. I hope you will not hate us too much. . . My son broke into your home recently while you were out." In a quiet, leafy suburb in upstate New York, a teenager has been sneaking into houses--and into the owners' computers as well--learning their secrets, and maybe sharing some of them, too. Who is he, and what might he have uncovered? After two anonymous letters are received, whispers start to circulate, and suspicion mounts. And when a woman down the street is found murdered, the tension reaches the breaking point. Who killed her? Who knows more than they're telling? And how far will all these very nice people go to protect their own secrets? In this neighborhood, it's not just the husbands and wives who play games. Here, everyone in the family has something to hide . . .You never really know what people are capable of.

My Review:
This was an okay read that kept me entertained for the most part. I have read other books by this author that I enjoyed a lot more, namely The Couple Next Door, Not a Happy Family, and An Unwanted Guest. I found the premise for this one to be exciting but the execution and the ending were lackluster. There was a lot going on and many red herrings so I didn't figure out the who or why and that is a bonus. All in all a quick, easy read that will keep you guessing, but definitely not the author's best work. Three and a half stars. 

I borrowed this from my local library, thank you Toronto Public Library!
