“Most readers won’t anticipate the Hitchcockian twists and turns in this standout suspense tale.” (Washington Post)
“Chapter by chapter, the text peels back layers to reveal a pathological relationship between Kate’s cousin and a long-ago acquaintance that’s reminiscent of a folie à deux out of Patricia Highsmith... By then, readers, privy to much Kate doesn’t know, may be experiencing their own anxiety.” (Wall Street Journal on Her Every Fear)
“Peter Swanson tells the engaging story of a woman battling severe anxiety who decides to radically change her life - and the horrifying results that follow - in Her Every Fear… An effective and compulsive thriller.” (St. Louis Post Dispatch)
“[It] has ‘movie adaptation’ written all over it. It has an alluring location, a fragile yet resilient protagonist and a thoroughly Hitchcockian storyline, replete with the requisite false starts and plot twists… High tension, lightning-fast pacing and psychological drama in spades.” (BookPage on Her Every Fear)
“Psychological thriller devotees should block time to read Swanson’s (The Kind Worth Killing) novel in one sitting, preferably in the daylight. Readers can expect the hairs on their necks to stand straight up as they are consumed with a full-blown case of heebie-jeebies.” (Library Journal (starred review))
“The attractive young woman at the heart of this white-knuckle novel, has many fears-mostly justified… Swanson, who also wrote The Girl with a Clock for a Heart and The Kind Worth Killing, has quickly established himself as today’s master of the suspense novel.” (Otto Penzler, LitHub.com on Her Every Fear)
“Peter Swanson’s third thriller cracks to life in the opening pages. His characters are engaging, and the reader is treated to multiple points of view... The payoff for the reader is an excellent whodunit with a magical appeal for the mystery thriller lover.” (Seattle Book Review on Her Every Fear)
“I loved it! A brilliantly original premise, delivered with panache.” (Clare Mackintosh, author of I Let You Go on Her Every Fear)
“Did you like the film Rear Window? I did, and turning the pages of Peter Swanson’s HER EVERY FEAR harkened every chilling and suspenseful moment of watching it. Swanson’s pace is brisk, and at any moment you think you have the crime solved, but then another twist happens.” (Bookreporter.com)
“Peter Swanson creates quite a mysterious stew here…. Those readers who are tired of encountering the scenario in which the damsel in distress is rescued by a prince will find much to love here, given how Swanson puts a unique corkscrew on that plot device.” (Bookreporter.com on Her Every Fear)
“A compelling tale of murder and deception that keeps the reader turning pages. Kate is a sympathetic heroine who has seen too much, but rises above it.” (Authorlink.com on Her Every Fear)
“The skillfully conjured Boston winter creates the perfect atmosphere for breeding paranoia, which kicks into high gear with the introduction of Cherney’s Rear Window-like flashbacks. Swanson … introduces a delicious monster-under-the-bed creepiness to the expected top-notch characterization and steadily mounting anxiety.” (Booklist (starred review))
“There are many twists and turns in this layered novel… It’s definite stay-up-all-night kind of read and will leave you guessing.” (News and Sentinel (Parkersburg, WV) on Her Every Fear)
From the Back Cover
Kate Priddy was always a bit neurotic, but after an ex-boyfriend kidnapped her and nearly ended her life, her bouts of anxiety began exploding into full-blown panic attacks. When Corbin Dell, a cousin in Boston, suggests the two temporarily swap apartments, Kate agrees, hoping that time away in a new place will help her overcome the past traumas of her life.
But at Corbin’s grand apartment on Beacon Hill, Kate makes a shocking discovery: his next-door neighbor, a young woman named Audrey, has been murdered. When the police question her about Corbin, a shaken Kate has few answers, but many questions of her own—and her curiosity intensifies when she meets Alan, a handsome tenant who lives across the courtyard. Alan saw Corbin surreptitiously come and go from Audrey’s place, yet Corbin’s denied knowing her. Then, Kate runs into a man claiming to be the dead woman’s old boyfriend, who insists Corbin did the deed.
Corbin proclaims his innocence and calms Kate’s nerves . . . until she comes across disturbing objects hidden in the apartment. Could Corbin really be a killer? And what about Alan? Kate finds herself drawn to this appealing man who seems so sincere, but she isn’t sure. Jet-lagged and emotionally fragile, her imagination full of dark images, Kate can barely trust herself, let alone a stranger she’s just met. Yet the danger Kate imagines isn’t nearly as twisted as what is about to happen. When her every fear becomes very real.
And much, much closer than she thinks.
Told from multiple points of view, Her Every Fear is a scintillating, edgy novel rich with Peter Swanson’s chilling insight into the darkest corners of the human psyche and his virtuosic skill for plotting that have propelled him into the highest ranks of suspense, in the tradition of such greats as Gillian Flynn, Paula Hawkins, Patricia Highsmith, and James M. Cain.
