Published in 2019, The House Next Door by James Patterson is a collection of three short stories.
The House Next Door follows a married mother of three who is thrilled when her new neighbour invites her on some errands. But a few quick tasks became a long lunch-and now things could go too far with a man who isn’t what he seems.
The Killer’s Wife follows Detective McGrath’s investigation into the disappearance of four girls. He knows the only way to find them is to get close to the suspect’s wife… maybe too close.
We. Are. Not. Alone sees the first message from space, the undeniable proof of alien life. Disgraced Air Force scientist Robert Barnett found it. Now he’s the target of a desperate nationwide manhunt, and Earth’s future hangs in the balance.
