Verity Baxter has lived – quietly, carefully – in Trinity Fields all her life. Then Ailsa and Tom Tilson move in next door and everything changes. Can Verity trust what she hears through the walls?

And what about the Tilsons: should they pity their eccentric neighbour and her messy house? Or should they fear her?

Either way, like the ivy that creeps through their shared garden fence, their lives are entwined now. And the knots can only get tighter . . .

Publisher Review

Reminiscent of Virago Classics and Alan Bennett monologues, it's an accomplished and addictive addition to the great British tradition of spinster fiction, and Verity - perceptive about many things, blind to others - could well turn out to be as rich a portrait as in any novel this year * The Sunday Times * A delicious study in dark psychology, this clever tale will keep you guessing * Real People * Durrant gently reveals her delicate exploration of damaged relationships, fragile friendships, missed potential, and what happens when ambition governs the way you treat others (...) An absorbing, classy read to keep you guessing * Evening Standard * You think you know what's going on in this brilliant read, then you realise you so don't! * Fabulous * An intelligent, twisty psychological thriller * The Observer * Engrossing psychological crime novel...the story plays with our sympathies and explores the boundary between devotion and resentment that exists in relationships of all kinds * Literary Review * A slow-burn thriller that sucks you in and keeps you wanting more. Just when you think you know someone, think again... * Heat * Eerie * Woman & Home Online * Chilling * The Independent * A smart, compelling and thoroughly haunting read * Mail on Sunday * Suspenseful thriller. One not to miss * Woman * This well-paced, intelligent mystery benefits from finely-drawn characters and convincing psychological tension. Durrant explores the vicious extremes of female behaviour and asks us to take a peek at the raging traumas behind the calm masks of suburban respectability * Daily Mail * This summer's most anticipated thriller, Finders, Keepers is deliciously slow-burning and hard to put down. Fans of Durrant's previous novels will relish the smart twists and turns and will be left guessing until the very end * Evening Standard * A delicious study in dark psychology, a narrator to keep you guessing and a real emotional punch * Best Magazine * Well-paced thriller... Durrant builds a sense of menace and the ending is satisfying, with a believable twist * Good Housekeeping * A taut thriller with layer upon layer of suspense and twists right to the very last page * Red * We have Verity's own word for it! Terrific (adj): extremely good, wonderful * Saga * Seriously superior psychological thriller...the language is honed as sharp as a stiletto. The murder mystery is teased out to the very last compelling page * The Sunday Times Crime Club * Completely WONDERFUL, her best book yet. I utterly loved it and could not put it down. Sabine has such a gift for those exquisite, telling details * Marian Keyes * Extraordinary ... a beautifully written, gripping cross between Notes from a Scandal and Gone Girl, with a dash of Eleanor Oliphant. Ridiculously good * Mark Edwards * Totally immersive, brilliantly written and creepily plausible * Claire McGowan * Deliciously sly yet also profoundly moving - a twisty game of cat and mouse that keeps the reader guessing at every step * JP Delaney * An absolute belter. Utterly engrossing, astute, disturbing and so believable. Just fantastic * Sarah Hilary * Riveting from the first page to the last. No one creates characters like Sabine Durrant. I was completely enthralled * Clare Mackintosh * Elegant and astute, Finders Keepers is truly gripping * Louise O'Neill * Pitch-perfect. I absolutely loved it * Lucy Dawson * A masterfully-plotted page-turner * Erin Kelly * Incredible! So clever and compelling * Lucy Atkins * Utterly immersive and compulsive. Pace, place, characters, plot ... It's a masterclass * Gill Hornby * Beautifully written and stupendously addictive * Deborah Moggach * A masterly slow-burn gripper * Louise Candlish *
