‘Does for bathtubs what Psycho did for showers. A thriller honed to a fine point, sharp and keen and piercing; it’s darkly comic, too, and uncommonly observant. This is suspense you can feel good about.’  A J Finn, bestselling author of The Woman In The Window

“Someone is getting inside your house… It’s a chilling premise, and Andrea Mara executes it brilliantly. This one is an absolute page turner!”
Shari Lapena, New York Times bestselling author of The Couple Next Door

Someone In The Attic will be published in UK/ Ireland by Transworld in June 2024 and in the US by Pamela Dorman Books | Penguin in August 2024

You thought you were home alone. Think again…

It could happen to you. 
Anya is enjoying a relaxing bath when she hears a noise in the roof. Through the open bathroom door, she sees the attic hatch swing open, and a masked figure drops to the floor. Thirty seconds later, Anya is dead.

Even in a wealthy neighbourhood like this. 
Across town, Anya’s old school friend, Julia, sees an online video of a masked figure climbing out of an attic. She suddenly realises why the footage is eerily familiar: it was filmed inside her house in a luxury gated community, designed to keep intruders out.

Even with friends like these.
Why would a stranger target Julia? Unless of course, it’s not a stranger at all.

‘Just wow! Someone in the Attic is a tightly coiled exploration of the secrets of suburbia that kept me guessing until the final gasp-inducing reveal (that I absolutely didn’t see coming). Andrea Mara is on fire! Addictive storytelling, superbly constructed. I devoured this book in one sitting and so will most.’  Amanda Cassidy, author of Dagger shortlisted Breaking

‘Andrea Mara gets better and better. In Someone in the Attic, she weaves an intricate, relatable and utterly compelling tapestry of domestic suspense. Then she pulls the thread . . .’ Catherine Kirwan, author of A Lesson In Malice

‘Wow! I loved it. It is so well plotted with lots of unexpected twists and turns. I was guessing, and second guessing, throughout.’  Patricia Gibney, author of the multi-million selling Lottie Parker series.
