Publisher's Synopsis


The spine-tingling new thriller from the internationally bestselling author of Richard & Judy pick THE WHISPER MAN


It begins with the house - and a body:
Alan Hobbes stabbed to death in his own bed.

For years, he's lived as a recluse in the remains of a
derelict mansion that once belonged to a serial killer.

The police have a suspect: Christopher Shaw,
observed on the premises on the night of the murder.

Katie Shaw hasn't seen her brother Chris in two years.
All her life, she's tried to look out for him.
Even when he made it so hard.

But now he's bound up in the secrets of this dark house.
To save Chris, dare she follow him inside . . .
