Synopsis

Winner of the August Derleth Award, No One Gets Out Alive is the ultimate haunted house thriller from horror writer Adam Nevill.

Darkness lives within . . .

Cash-strapped, working for agencies and living in shared accommodation, Stephanie Booth feels she can fall no further. So when she takes a new room at the right price, she believes her luck has finally turned. But 82 Edgware Road is not what it appears to be.

It's not only the eerie atmosphere of the vast, neglected house, or the disturbing attitude of her new landlord, Knacker McGuire, that makes her uneasy - it's the whispers behind the fireplace, the scratching beneath floors, the footsteps in the dark, and the young women weeping in neighbouring rooms. And when Knacker's cousin Fergal arrives, the danger goes vertical.

But this is merely a beginning, a gateway to horrors beyond Stephanie's worst nightmares. And in a house where no one listens to the screams, will she ever get out alive?

In the media

Stephanie is submerged in abject terror, bouncing from mundane despair to supernatural fright so quickly that the reader becomes disoriented-a sensation that only enhances the suspense ... a reading experience fraught with real chills.
PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
A fantastically cool read from start to finish, this author makes you turn on your lights and keep reading; a bit of an increase to the electric bill seeing as that there are over six hundred pages in this unforgettable story. But if there were six stars to be given instead of five, this one deserves them!
SUSPENSE MAGAZINE
Once again we have a dark and disturbing tale from the pen of Adam Nevill, and it's one which took me on a roller coaster ride.
