Publisher Description

‘Lacing everyday life with menace is Sam Carrington’s greatest strength as a storyteller.’ The Times

Everyone’s welcome. But not everyone leaves…

Nick and Amber Miller are splitting up and selling their Devon family home. But despite the desirable location, the house isn’t moving. Not a single viewing so far.
 
When their estate agent suggests an open house event, Amber agrees, even as she worries about their gossiping neighbours attending and snooping around their home.
 
But Amber has more to worry about than nosy neighbours. Because thirteen people enter her house that afternoon, and only twelve leave.
 
Someone doesn't want the house to sell, and is willing to do anything to stop it…

What readers are saying about The Open House…

‘Well I certainly will not be planning any open houses in my future… A truly gripping, spine-chilling, compelling read that was a definite page-turner with it's shocking twists and turns and cleverly-written story. HIGHLY recommend this one!’

‘If you are looking for a creepy, fast-paced thriller, enter The Open House!’

‘Read this if you like twisty thrillers, and books that make you double check your door is locked at night!!!’

‘This book has the paranoia and unreliability of The Woman in the Window and the suburban, gossipy fun of a Liane Moriarty novel. I can’t recommend this thriller enough!’

‘Wow, Sam Carrington, you really went to the park with this one. It's honestly not something I would even have thought of and the suspense was killing me – I didn't want to put this book down!’

‘An addictive page-turner! Psychological suspense at its best!’
