The thriller people haven’t been able to put down this summer

Kat O'Connor

This thriller is the book of the summer

If you’re jetting off on your holidays this summer then there’s one thriller you need to make room for in your suitcase.

Sometimes we only ever have time to read when we’re on our summer holidays but sadly we can’t bring the ten paperbacks that have been sitting on our desk with us.

That means picking just one book can be a daunting task, but Andrea Mara has made the decision easy this summer.

Her new novel Someone In The Attic has become one of the most-talked-about books in the Irish bookish world and we’re not one bit surprised.

The phenomenal book is a must-read if you’re a fan of a tense and twisty tale.

Someone In The Attic follows the murder of Anya who believes she is home alone until she sees a masked figure jump down from the attic in her house.

The terrifying story is addictive and has swiftly become a bestseller since it was published at the beginning of the month.

Andrea Mara is one author you can always rely on and she has proved that yet again with another gripping, moving, and haunting story.

Trust me when you say you won’t be able to put this book down this summer so I do hope you bag yourself a sun lounger with ease.

You can read the full synopsis below:

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.
