Randolph insists he had a normal childhood, though his father kept thirty loaded guns in the house. Now he has an attractive, intelligent wife and two children, enjoys modest success as an architect and has just moved into a beautiful flat in a respectable part of Berlin. Life seems perfect--until his wife, Rebecca, meets the man living in the basement below.

Their downstairs neighbour is friendly at first, but soon he starts to frighten them--and when Randolph fails to act, the situation quickly spins out of control.

'FEAR shifts our moral codes. It makes us sympathetic to violent revenge, accessories to murder. Do we want the victim to survive? No, we don't. Long after I had put this book down I still didn't. A great achievement.' Herman Koch
