Synopsis

 

The critically acclaimed novel from a master of contemporary American fiction—now available as an ebook
To protect the child she loves, Molly Gray must cooperate with a killer Molly Gray never trusted Ben Fleiss, her best friend Wendy’s abusive husband. When Wendy’s broken body is found in a dumpster, Molly is devastated—and knows exactly who the killer is. But as viscerally as Molly hates Ben, she loves Ben and Wendy’s seven-year-old child, Naomi. While awaiting trial, Ben retains custody of his daughter, and Molly soon realizes the only way to keep Naomi safe is to stay as close to Ben as possible—even if it means consoling and flattering the man who murdered her friend. Yglesias’s most suspenseful work, The Murderer Next Door is rich with startling twists and revelations hinged to uncanny psychological insight. This ebook features a new illustrated biography of Rafael Yglesias, including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author’s personal collection.
