Review: Stranger in the House

User Review  - Anne Martin - Goodreads

I read this book a long time ago and loved it. The author's way of making a thriller agrees to me. No gore, no violence -or very little of it, but a psychological analysis of the characters. A great book, followed by many of the same kind. Read full review
