The Killer Next Door by Alex Marwood

Product Details

I was excited to get to read this book. I'm pretty hit or miss with thrillers, but Stephen King, himself, said this book was "Scary as hell."* That said, I'm so glad I'm done reading this book. I was strongly tempted to list this one as a DNF** because it had become a chore to read. It didn't even get interesting until over halfway through. 

I'm really not sure why Marwood paced the book this way. It made the entire story line painfully predictable. At the very least, I give Marwood full credit for creating realistic characters. My problem is the pacing and lack of anything interesting until the second death. Nothing in this book surprised me. Nothing in this book was scary. Barely anything was interesting. But I did finish it so, by my own standards, I have to give at least two hoots.
