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

Vividly contrasts the apparent normality of suburbia with the awful truths it can conceal . . . A thriller that is capable of keeping you up all night — and then haunting your dreams. Creepy and accomplished, it is not quite as scary as Lecter, but close
Daily Mail
'Beautifully written and plotted, excellent characters and creepy as hell
Liz Loves Books
A highly original and creepy tale that rattles along with menace and does not let up until the cracking finale
Daily Express
