Into The Darkest Corner “Check the locks on your doors and windows and surrender to this obsessive thriller.” — Karin Slaughter
When young, pretty Catherine Bailey meets Lee Brightman, she can’t believe her luck. Gorgeous, charismatic and a bit mysterious, Lee seems almost too perfect to be true. But what begins as flattering attention and spontaneous, passionate sex transforms into raging jealousy, and Catherine soon discovers that Lee’s dashing good looks hide a dark, violent nature.
Four years later, Lee is behind bars and Catherine—now Cathy—is trying to build a new life for herself. Trusting no one, she compulsively checks every lock of her apartment and varies her route home each day. Then an attractive new neighbour moves in. Encouraging her to confront her fears, he sparks unexpected hope and the possibility of a normal life. Until the day the phone rings.
Winner of Amazon UK’s Book of the Year Award and shortlisted for the Waverton Good Read Award and the People’s Book Prize, the mesmerizing, skillfully drawn and vividly cinematic Into the Darkest Corner is an ingeniously structured tour de force of suspense that marks the arrival of a major new talent.
