The Other Tenant

The Other Tenant

The spine-tingling new thriller from the Sunday Times bestselling author


Brought to you by Penguin.


Marlow has always lived in unusual places. But when she accepts a vacancy as a property guardian, she finds herself moving back to a place she swore she'd never return to.

Right from the start, she knows it's a terrible mistake. Something sinister is happening on the site - the previous tenant, Hayley, has disappeared without warning, and Marlow suspects the other guardians know far more than they're letting on. She's determined to find out what happened to Hayley, but which of these strangers can she trust?

And what secrets from Marlow's own past are about to make things even worse?
