Summary

Warning: contains bad language at times, particularly when the poor people are talking. Includes the very worst swear word a few times as well. Please do not purchase if offended by swearing (or offended by people leaving used teabags on the sink). Thank you.

The Haughton Park development just outside Manchester is an exclusive new suburb of expensive homes for professional families. When the developer fails to sell half of the properties, the project is thrown into financial chaos. 

The local council steps in with a workable solution. They propose to use the unsold homes as social housing for homeless families in return for the much-needed cash injection that the developer needs to pay the bills.

It’s a win-win situation. Or is it?

Many of the homeowners are up in arms at the proposal. They don’t want the place overrun with "scrubbers". They start a media campaign to stop the plans, but they are defeated. The homeless families are given temporary accommodation on the swish development. 

Mum of four Rachel Birdsworth is one of the new residents, and she’s determined to get past these stupid class differences. She does her very best to get along with everybody and make new friends. It all starts off quite well. But when she realizes the homeowner across the road is a wife-beating bully and that his wife is a virtual prisoner in the home, she wants to help. But this kind of help has deadly consequences.

DCI Andrew Miller is back, trying to get to the bottom of what exactly has happened over at Haughton Park in this heart-stopping, dark thriller from One Man Crusade author Steven Suttie.

A full audio drama than a book

Wow! Having enjoyed the first book by this author in the series I immediately acquired the second and I was not disappointed. Hearing different voices playing the characters really brought the whole thing to life. Admittedly, some of the acting was a little hammy but it didn’t spoil the enjoyment. With added music & sound effects I think the next one should be a full audio drama

I loved this, found it hilarious

I read this on kindle firstly, I loved it so much I grabbed the audio, it's hysterically funny, not sure that it's meant to be, it is deadly serious too in a pretty dark way, but it appealed to my dark sense of humour so I enjoyed it. The warning should be taken seriously, the warning about the swearing, there is a lot of that but many people live surrounded by this all day every day so yes, it can be treated as realistic, it just depends on where you live as to how normal it will seem. The narrator is not so great sadly, he speaks too fast and does some rather silly female voices but he didn't manage to ruin it so I'd say give it a go if you have got this far you may well enjoy it. It's a rather sad story overall though, another thing to bear in mind.

Hatred, abuse, betrayal and death

Neighbors from Hell sounds almost like a play or tv series. There are many actors who play background characters and trust me they are good. I love the narration it was emotional and believable. The story is fast paced and extremely well written. The storyline could almost be taken out of today's news reports. I highly recommend this book if you like suspense, crime and twists. I received this audio book upon my request and I am voluntarily leaving an honest review.
