Synopsis

The No.1 Bestseller by debut author Fiona Cummins

A serial killer to chill your bones

A psychopath more frightening than Hannibal Lecter.

He has planned well. He leads two lives. In one he's just like anyone else. But in the other he is the caretaker of his family's macabre museum.

Now the time has come to add to his collection. He is ready to feed his obsession, and he is on the hunt.

Jakey Frith and Clara Foyle have something in common. They have what he needs.

What begins is a terrifying cat-and-mouse game between the sinister collector, Jakey's father and Etta Fitzroy, a troubled detective investigating a spate of abductions.

Set in London's Blackheath, Rattle by Fiona Cummins explores the seam of darkness that runs through us all; the struggle between light and shadow, redemption and revenge.

It is a glimpse into the mind of a sinister psychopath. And it's also a story about not giving up hope when it seems that all hope is already lost.

In the media

Serial killers don’t come much scarier than the monstrous creation who haunts this astonishingly assured debut, which transforms London’s leafy suburb of Blackheath into a realm of mythic horror . . . as the tension and urgency escalates, Cummins takes you on a macabre but riveting thrill ride
Sunday Mirror
Sharp, moving and wholly original. Rattle is a breath of fresh air
Tammy Cohen
Cleverest and creepiest plot I've read in a long time. Left me breathless with fear . . . utterly brilliant
