There are some books that you have to keep reading (or listening to) because they’re so well written and plotted that you are drawn in and have to know what happens next. Together they team up to solve "who the fuck is that lady in the dilapidated house across the street". Although I have always found the author's previous works enjoyable, I cannot include this one in my list of recommendations.

Biography: Claire published her first novel in 2012, and has followed it up with many others in the crime fiction genre and also in women's fiction (writing as Eva Woods). These two are separately looking out the window one night and think they see something sinister occurring in one of the (abandoned) homes across the street. This is a wickedly clever premise that features a mother of two (Mary) who is on maternity leave and of course like every mother needs a good night's Sleep. Thanks to Netgalley and Thomas and Mercer for giving me the opportunities to read and review this book. Although readers are meant to feel for the two main characters as one struggles with PTSD and the other is a sleep deprived Mother with a husband who is clueless.Tim, on the other hand, seems like a fairly stand-up kind of guy when he’s not spying on his ex-wife, Alice. Although the characters were irksome, they were representative of what law enforcement deals with on a regular basis…people (witnesses) who think they know more than they really do! You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. These two Amateur Detectives succeed where the Police have failed, finding lead after lead that the Detectives have apparently missed! The final resolution to Sam’s disappearance and several other unsolved crimes is almost like pulling a rabbit out of a hat – fine for a magic show but not a very satisfactory ending for a mystery novel.

The two meet when they venture outside of their respective houses in the middle of a sleepless night after “witnessing” what appears to be “violence” in the attic room of a boarded up house across the park. One night, both Mary and Tim look out to a house across from them, and witness violence through the window. I didn’t really connect with any of the characters, and nothing about the storyline had me gripped, which is a shame as it started out so well.And, the decisions she would make while her children were in tow would not win her any “mother of the year” awards.
