Shari Lapeña’s debut thriller hits a nerve with international publishers


THE CONTINUED popularity of domestic thrillers, stoked in recent years by novels like Gone Girl and Girl on the Train, has been good for Toronto author Shari Lapeña, who is receiving unexpected international interest in her forthcoming take on the genre.

The Couple Next Door, due this summer, has already sold to publishers in 23 territories, including Mondadori in Italy, Bastei Lübbe in Germany, Presses de la Cite in France, and AST in Russia. English-language editions will appear from Transworld in the U.K., Pamela Dorman Books/Viking in the U.S., and Doubleday in Canada.
