The Stranger Inside

The Stranger Inside

‘This classy, atmospheric thriller is always one step ahead’ Heat

A gripping psychological thriller for fans of The Couple Next Door, I Let You In and The Girl Before

There’s a stranger living in Kimber Hannon’s house. He tells the police that he has every right to be there, and he has the paperwork to prove it. But Kimber definitely didn’t invite this man to move in. He tells her that he knows something about her, and he wants everyone else to know it too.

“I was there. I saw what you did.”

These words reveal a connection to Kimber’s distant past, and dark secrets she’d long ago left buried. This trespasser isn’t after anything as simple as her money or her home. He wants to move into her carefully orchestrated life – and destroy it.

Can you imagine the nightmare of a stranger taking over your house? The terror you would feel? With The Stranger Inside, Laura Benedict turns her unique voice in suspense to the elegant scary mystery, where nothing is as it seems and one woman's truth is shattered by the hidden secrets of her past.
J.T. Ellison, New York Times bestselling author of Lie to Me
Compelling characters, lush settings, complex emotions - all in a clever plot and spiced with a hint of darkness. These are the trademarks of Laura Benedict's writing.
Carolyn Haines, bestselling author of the Sarah Booth Delaney mysteries and The House of Memory
Laura Benedict's The Stranger Inside begins with one of the most unnerving premises I've ever read. This is a masterfully constructed thriller about one woman's inability to escape from the complicated web of her past. You won't be able to put it down until every secret is revealed, one breathtaking surprise after another, all the way until the shocking final pages.
David Bell, USA Today bestselling author of Somebody’s Daughter
The Stranger Inside is an intense, fascinating character study that will have you rooting for Kimber while she turns her life around and tries to stay alive.
Catherine Coulter, New York Times bestselling author of Paradox
The Stranger Inside is a twisty, compelling thriller. Laura Benedict takes hold of your throat and doesn't let go until the final page.
Jeff Abbott, New York Times bestselling author of The Three Beths
Absorbing, addictive and downright chilling, The Stranger Inside made me lose sleep in the best possible way. I was shocked by the reveals, too - and that doesn't happen often! This one's a must-read.
Alison Gaylin, USA Today bestselling author of If I Die Tonight
Suspenseful and moving, The Stranger Inside gripped me from the first page. Laura Benedict is at the top of her game.
Meg Gardiner, author of Into the Black Nowhere
Ever-twisting, surprise-filled . . . Kimber is the epitome of the unreliable narrator. Readers will enjoy vicarious chills in her company.
