Description

FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE NO. 1 SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER, NO ONE SAW A THING.

You thought you were home alone. Think again...


'A thriller honed to a fine point, sharp and keen and piercing.' A. J. Finn

‘An absolute page turner!’ Shari Lapena

‘A gripping story, beautifully told.’ Patricia Cornwell

It could happen to you.
Anya is enjoying a relaxing bath when she hears a noise in the roof. Through the open bathroom door, she sees the attic hatch swing open, and a masked figure drops to the floor. Thirty seconds later, Anya is dead.

Even in a wealthy neighbourhood like this.
Across town, Anya's old school friend, Julia, sees an online video of a masked figure climbing out of an attic. She suddenly realises why the footage is eerily familiar: it was filmed inside her house in a luxury gated community, designed to keep intruders out.

Even with friends like these.
Why would a stranger target Julia? Unless of course, it's not a stranger at all.

Everyone is talking about Someone in the Attic:

'I was eyeballing my attic on my way to bed. My favourite of Andrea’s so far!' ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
'I started reading this at 1am when I couldn't sleep.... do not do that! I was wetting myself at every single noise in my house. It's just amazing!' ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

What a read!!!
The opening chapter terrified and captivated me in equal measure and I was hooked. To the point that I had to go and hide in my room ( in daylight because I was too spooked to read this at night)) and read the rest of this in one go. A delightful Sunday, well spent.
,
This had all of the trademarks I have come to expect from Mara's books- intricate plotting, brilliantly paced, unputdownable and impossible to predict but there was also a different vibe to her previous books. As well as the aforementioned components, there was a really compelling back story and brilliantly realistic characters. I was so invested in the story of these friends and of their earlier lives and I really loved how all the different strands came together.

Another brilliantly propulsive read from the Queen of Irish crime fiction. Hugely recommend this one , you'll never look comfortably at your attic door again.

5 star.

Andrea has done it again and this time, she has turned the dial way up on the creepy factor and it was bone-chillingly brilliant! I got to about 40% and was eyeballing my attic on my way to bed. At one point I was convinced I had it worked out but no: the twists were flawless. The pace was perfect, fast without being rushed and the twisty plot had me hooked - I finished the book within 24 hours. It’s possibly my favourite of Andrea’s so far - definitely more creepy than her last three. A fantastic and addictive read!
