The Nightmare Place by Steve Mosby

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A scary, well-written frightener not for young women living alone, especially if they have a vivid imagination. It involves a killer who is able to enter houses undetected. The press name him The Creeper. Creepy he certainly is! This is an involved tale with seemingly unconnected chapters that gradually come together adding to the desperate need to keep turning these pages. It is very good.

If you like Steve Mosby you might also like to read books by Richard Montanari, Michael Marshall, Stuart MacBride, John Connolly and P. J. Tracy.

Who is Sarah Broadhurst

The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. DI Zoe Dolan is on the trail of ‘The Creeper’, a stalker who has been forcing his way into women’s homes and attacking them. But as Zoe is all too aware, the violence of his attacks has been increasing, and capturing him has become ever more pressing – although Zoe has no way of knowing when he will strike next. With the authoritative orchestration of tension that is one of Mosby’s key skills, this is unputdownable.


The Nightmare Place by Steve Mosby

Or at least that's one theory for DI Zoe Dolan, tracking the Creeper - a stalker who's been breaking into women's homes and attacking them. But the Creeper's violence is escalating and there's no pattern, no clue as to how he's getting in, and no clue as to who's next. Until Jane Webster gets a call to the helpline where she volunteers. It's meant to be a confidential service and Jane is torn - it could be a hoaxer, but the soft voice at the end of the line has the ring of truth about it. He says he loves these women - but it's a love that ends in blood. When Jane tells the police, it should be the lead that Zoe needs - but it only pulls her further into a case that is already taking her dangerously close to the past she's never fully escaped. For Jane, Zoe and all the other young women of the city, suddenly nowhere is safe. Particularly their own bedroom at the dead of night...
