“Her thoughts speed up and become less rational; her mind makes fantastic leaps. It’s not that things don’t make sense to her when she’s like this — sometimes they make ‘more’ sense. They make sense the way dreams do. It’s only when the dream is over that you see how odd it all was, how it actually didn’t make sense at all.”Shari Lapena, The Couple Next Door
One of the most elating and baffling books I have perused. It required a lot of persistence to peruse this book since the plot was spinning around one primary issue, the kidnapping of a 6-month old infant from his home while her parents were away for a gathering next door.
So how about we begin moving forward without any more past due.
Anne a young lady remains with her significant other Marco and half year old little girl in a peaceful neighborhood. One night they are welcomed for supper by their neighbour Cynthia and Graham. They choose to go out and intended to keep an eye on her each thirty minutes as their neighbours needed to celebrate personally with no diversions. What pursues is a progression of occasions that changes the course of the story and makes you restless enough with the goal that you complete the book in one go.
Proceeding onward, criminologist Rasbach is the doled out analyst for this case. He has his doubts however keeps it saved. He has certain speculations which can’t be spoilt in this book review. He continues with the case and stunning situations develop. From Anne’s parents touching base on the scene to the historical backdrop of there guardians together.

As the case advances, Anne and Marco get a package with bloodied garments that they assume is off their girl. Both are alarmed as the bundle comprises of a note with the interest of payoff of 5 million dollars. They request help from Anne’s folks.
The creator depicts each character in detail and as the mysteries are out individually, you will come to realize that nobody is blameless, not in any case their neighbors, Cynthia and Graham.
The conclusion to the story is as chilling as the beginning and it keeps you pondering whether we can confide in the individuals whom we live with. It likewise discloses the need for a consistent discussion in a relationship with no secrets(ps: I am not a relationship expert).
Clearly, the child is found however what trails that will truly clear you off from your feet. You will be constrained to finish this book in one sitting on the off chance that you are a secret and spine chiller type fan. It merits your time and I trust you truly appreciate this book as I did.
