USA Today bestselling author Carter Wilson returns with another chilling psychological thriller, for readers of Megan Miranda and Alex Michaelides
Aidan holds the winning Powerball numbers.
Is today the best day of his life... or the worst?
Aidan Marlowe is the superstitious type—he's been playing the same lottery numbers for fifteen years, never hitting the jackpot. Until now. On the day of his wife's funeral.
Aidan struggles to cope with these two sudden extremes: instant wealth beyond his imagination, and the loss of the only woman he's ever loved, the mother of his twin children. But the money gives him and his kids options they didn't have before. They can leave everything behind. They can start a new life in a new town. So they do.
But a huge new house and all the money in the world can't replace what they've lost, and it's not long before Aidan realizes he's merely trading old demons for new ones. Because someone is watching him and his family very closely. Someone who knows exactly who they are, where they've come from, and what they're trying to hide. Someone who will stop at nothing to get what they want...
"Carter Wilson's writing is evocative and intense, his characters deeply flawed yet relatable."—Julie Clark, New York Times bestselling author of The Last Flight for The Dead Husband
"A smashing story about families and secrets and all the things you don't want to know about the people closest to you. Read it!"—David Bell, USA Today bestselling author for The Dead Husband

A fast pace thriller that amazed me. I loved this book. The story was interesting and exciting. I highly recommend this read.
Carter Wilson’s latest novel, “The New Neighbor” is exactly what I’ve been looking for, so many “thriller/crime/horrible/“domestic suspense” novels in recent times have been such a YAWN.
This was a an excellent return to my earlier favorites of his novels (“The Dead Girl in 2A”, “The Comfort of Black”and “Revelation”). Yay!!!
Great writing that held me in it’s grip and didn’t let me do anything else until I finished the last page (which I dreaded because I loved this book so much)..
I found that by the end of Chapter 12 of The New Neighbor (Carter Wilson) I was getting goosebumps. I kept getting them off and on through the entire book. What a ride! I've read other stories by Mr. Wilson, but I honestly think this is his best.
Aiden Marlowe hits the lottery for millions the same day his wife died. Because Marlowe was actually in the process of saying goodbye to his wife while she was being buried when he discovered the lottery win he decided it was a sign to move to Bury, New Hampshire. I want to thank NetGalley and Sourcebooks for an early copy to review.
