Synopsis

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

Written with an almost elegiac elegance, and a profound insight into the life of those on the miserable fringes of society, this is a gripping, gruesome bone-chiller with resonant themes, a supernatural edge and an overwhelming sense of malevolence. Read it if you dare... but preferably not during the hours of darkness!
FLEETWOOD TODAY
This here novel definitely comes as a cautionary tale: read the small print of your contract. More so, insist on a contract. And don't move into the first place on offer. Small Claims Courts cannot fight hell.

This great big anvil of horror lands hard from the get-go
