Publisher Description

Meet the new neighbours. Whose side are you on?

‘An exciting, dark novel about friendship; brutally truthful and raw’ Adele Parks, Sunday Times No. 1 bestselling author

Have you met The People at Number 9?

Sara and Neil have new neighbours in their street. Glamorous and chaotic, Gav and Lou make Sara’s life seem dull. As the two couples become friends, sharing suppers, red wine and childcare, it seems a perfect couples-match. But the more Sara sees of Gav and Lou, the more she longs to change her own life. But those changes will come at a price.

Praise for The People at Number 9:

‘Cleverly maintains suspense … a compelling and readable tale of our times’ Daily Mail

‘An exciting, dark novel about friendship; brutally truthful and raw’ Adele Parks

‘This was clever, relentless and utterly recognisable. I absolutely loved it!’ Katie Fforde

‘Held me in its vice-like grip from first page to last. It's a fascinating analysis of an unhealthy friendship based on insecurity and delusion, and the characters are so vividly drawn that I sympathised with them and despaired of them in equal measure’ Sophie Hannah

‘Excruciating yet unputdownable, this is domestic noir at its most gripping’ Woman & Home

'A cautionary tale of what happens when you get caught up with the in-crowd … The characters and the games they play are instantly recognisable to anyone who has stood at the school gates and felt slightly out of place. I gulped it down quicker than a dirty Martini' Veronica Henry

‘Beady insights into female friendship. Irresistible, excruciating and unputdownable’ Fanny Blake

‘Incisively witty, painfully true … draws the reader in with the voyeuristic joy of gossiping about our friends and neighbours, with a shocking sting in the tail to catch us all out’ Samantha King

‘I LOVED it. Such an unsettling read, with a whole grass-is-greener vibe that makes it really quite creepy … Perfect reading for a cold, dark night!’ Lisa Hall

Number 9

Oh yes, this book stirred some memories...I think we've all come across some of the folk in this book in the past, depending upon how many homes we've lived in! Such a great story and extremely well written. Particularly liked the little addition at the end...
