Last Room

Author: Danuta Reah Format: eBook Release Date: 05/06/2014

When Ania Milosz falls to her death in a Polish city, her father, Will Gillen, accepts the verdict of suicide. Ania, an expert witness, was about to be exposed as a perjurer and a liar. Will knows his daughter was neither, but he also knows the terrible burden she carried from her past when her sister was abducted and murdered. He realises there is one thing that may have made her fabricate evidence in a harrowing murder case: after all these years, has she found her sister's killer, and has the prospect of his release driven her to the point of suicide? Ania's lover, Dariusz, won't accept this. He knows Ania did not kill herself. Does Will really know his daughter, or is there an even darker story behind Ania's death? He is haunted by images of his dead daughter. Is she trying to tell him something, is she trying to warn him, or is his grief driving him mad? THE LAST ROOM is a dark and haunting book that explores the aftermath of a death and the different ways a crime may present itself: suicide or murder? Police ineptitude or corruption? And will there be more deaths?

Only Darkness

Only Darkness

Author: Danuta Reah Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 20/08/2010

Dark, edgy and unbearably tense, this extraordinarily accomplished first novel is both a love story and a gripping psychological thriller of immense power. Debbie Sykes is a young college lecturer whose ordered life is about to be changed forever. One stormy winter's night, waiting for the late train home, Debbie is acutely aware of being alone - the woman who usually shares her evening vigil is not there. Vulnerability turns to fear, though, when she turns to see a sinister figure looming between her and the safety of the street. The next day, she hears that the missing woman has been found murdered by the man they call the Strangler, a brutal killer who dumps his victims on isolated stretches of railway track. The police renew their efforts to find the murderer before he strikes again, but how much time do they really have? When Debbie's story is publicized by an unscrupulous journalist, it seems as though the jaws of an invisible trap are beginning to close around her - strange things start to happen and the foundations of Debbie's life subtly shift. Only Rob Neave, ex-policeman and college security officer, appears aware of the danger but he is distracted by his own tragic past. The clock is ticking, and it will be midnight far sooner than anyone thinks.

Silent Playgrounds

Silent Playgrounds

Author: Danuta Reah Format: Paperback Release Date: 09/10/2009

A dark psychological thriller that will hold the reader in its grip from beginning to end, Silent Playgrounds is the stunning follow-up to Danuta Reah's highly praised debut, Only Darkness. The path through the park runs from the centre of the city into the wilds of the countryside. At weekends the area is a playground for children and walkers, but during the week it is silent and deserted. When six-year-old Lucy gets lost there one day, her disappearance sparks a chain of events leading to the murder of a young woman. Lucy tries to warn the people she cares about of the danger: she knows that there are monsters lurking in the rambling park, and she knows that they are getting closer. What should be a straightforward investigation leads DI Steve McCarthy into a web of lies and evasions, where nothing is quite as it seems and everyone seems to be hiding something. With each step forward McCarthy faces new questions, and if he is to prevent an escalation in violence, he has to find some answers - fast.
