In When She Comes Knocking by Dan McDowell, Ben moves into a beautiful new house with his wife Hannah and his son Davey, trying to leave their tragic past behind and build a new and better future for themselves. Upon moving in, they are greeted in their new neighborhood by their first-door neighbor Jean Jackson, who, although being nice initially, comes off as a bit strange, and tries to infiltrate Ben's and Hannah's lives, which eventually drives a wedge between the happy couple. Ben, completely engulfed in protecting his family and his marriage, must stay sane enough to stop Jean in her attempts to destroy his family and his life, and to get out of this nightmare.
When She Comes Knocking by Dan McDowell is an excellent and exciting psychological thriller that will make readers jump in their seats while reading. With every page, McDowell slowly but effectively builds up the story of Ben Decker, a family man with secrets and scars from the past, a salesman with questionable morale working in the pharmacy industry, a movie fan, and an overall everyday man. McDowell describes the characters and the situations wherein they find themselves in a very realistic, vivid, and relatable way, which creates an air of excitement and unknown dangers lurking in the background right until the very end of the novel. The twists and turns toward the end will make your head spin and will make you doubt everything you've read as you're reaching the finale of this great story.
