Something improved for me when Lana Cattivo moved in next door. I guess you’d have to call it something else, desire, since lust wasn’t entirely accurate. But then, neither was love. Not by a long shot.
From Thriller and Shamus Award winner Vincent Zandri comes a thriller that shows danger doesn't need to find you - because it's already right next door.
Sometimes fences make for nice neighbors. Other times they hide the evil within. Orchard Grove is a town like any other, with quiet neighborhoods and apple groves . . . though Ethan, the depressed screenplay writer, and his secretive wife, Susan, would tell you differently. So would the seductive serial killer living next door.
The apple trees are fertilized with evil, and the backyard fences aren’t enough to stop the manipulative mind games and dangerous lies. The lines between good and evil are blurred, and then erased, as Ethan does what it takes to survive. Orchard Grove is a thriller from a writer lauded as one of the very best working today, that will keep you turning pages long into the night.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
First, let me say I am huge fan of Mr. Zandri, and his latest, “Orchard Grove” is by far his best work. If you are a fan of old fashioned, can’t put it down, suspenseful, surprising, and exciting thrillers, then this is 305 pages of dazzling reading for you. The protagonist, Ethan, is both heroic and pathetic, and the reader ends up hoping that this wicked, but romantic self-described loser will escape his predicament scot free. The ending is not only unpredictable, but also suspenseful and memorable. Mr. Zandri squeezes a complete range of emotions from both his characters and readers. So, you must get “Orchard Grove,” and see for yourself!
