"An absorbing, twisty psychological thriller that plays with the line between love and obsession." --Booklist

When the artist Marianne Glass falls to her death, everyone insists it was a tragic accident. But Rowan Winter, once her closest friend, knows better.

Marianne--and the whole Glass family--once meant everything to Rowan. Their lively, intellectual household offered a world of possibility and the warmth and encouragement missing in her own home. But the friends have been estranged for a decade when Marianne dies, and of those years Rowan knows only what the papers reported: Marianne's swift ascent in the London art world, her much-scrutinized romance with her gallerist.

Now, Rowan knows she won't rest until she discovers the truth about Marianne's death. The questions multiply: Is someone breaking into the Glass family house? Who is the man who watches at night from the opposite window? The deeper she goes, the more convinced Rowan becomes that something was--and may still be--very wrong. But some secrets are best left uncovered. And some can even be lethal . . .

Lucie Whitehouse grew up in Warwickshire, England, studied classics at the University of Oxford, and now lives in Brooklyn, New York, with her husband and daughter. She is the author of The House at Midnight, The Bed I Made, and Before We Met.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Suspenseful This is the 2nd book that I have read by this author. I found this one started out a tiny bit slow and confusing between the past and present. And there is a lot of art interpretation and analysis. But the book picks up by about chapter 6- so if you are starting this book or thinking of reading/buying it you are in for a real treat. This book is currently in the markdown section of chapters/indigo, and is so worth it or full price. This is a first rate mystery with lots of characters and plot to keep you guessing and interested. I didn't figure anything out before the author tells us. The book tumbles to a suspenseful and riveting ending you will not guess. Definitely will read her next one.

Editorial Reviews

"A wickedly addictive psychological thriller with enough twists and turns to keep genre enthusiasts captivated and reading well past their bedtime." - Library Journal (starred review)"Nail-biting . . . An emotionally satisfying read that builds to a thrilling climax." - Publishers Weekly"A first-rate psychological thriller about the decisions we make that forever define us." - Kirkus Reviews"An absorbing, twisty psychological thriller that plays with the line between love and obsession." - Booklist"Whitehouse's carefully constructed tinder ignites spectacularly. Whitehouse is a superb storyteller, whose sleight of hand and sly misdirections have you leaping to all the wrong conclusions from the outset. We do not know who can be trusted, least of all the increasingly volatile Rowan. The twist, and it would appear that no psych thriller is now complete without one, is right up there." - The Independent"You know a psychological thriller has done its job when you get to the last page and have an urge to instantly return to the first, to work out just how you've been so thoroughly hoodwinked. In this case it's by elegant plotting, brilliant characterization and a truly killer twist." - The Sunday Mirror"[A] quietly menacing psychological thriller that mines the trickier bits of family and friendship." - Washington Post"Of course, things are not entirely what they seem, and readers are in for some surprising--and shocking!--revelations . . . It is masterfully done." - Pop Culture Association"I devoured Keep You Close. Very clever, very gripping ... I loved it." - Susie Steiner, author of MISSING, PRESUMED"Lucie Whitehouse's new novel, Keep You Close, kept me up all night long. I couldn't stop reading until I reached the final, shattering pages. Skillfully constructed and beautifully realized, Keep You Close is the next must-read for fans of The Girl on the Train." - Amanda Eyre Ward, author of HOW TO BE LOST and THE SAME SKY
