What to expect

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.

Listen to a sample

Orchard Grove is a tightly crafted, smart, disturbing, elegantly complex thriller. It’s utterly riveting. I dare you to start it and not keep reading.”

M. J. Rose, New York Times bestselling author

“A riveting story of a down-and-out screenwriter who becomes obsessed with a comely new neighbor. Stories like this succeed or fail on the strength of their characters, and this one succeeds very well…Oh, what a story it is: grisly, surprising, and page-turningly suspenseful…A terrific old-school thriller.”

Booklist (starred review)

“Chilling…Riveting…Readers will hope that Ethan manages to avert a tragic ending, despite the odds.”

Publishers Weekly

“Vincent Zandri captures readers’ attention from the opening scene of his new suspense novel, Orchard Grove, and proceeds to careen through lust and lives…the story charges up and down a razor’s edge of tension and seduction.”
