A macabre miss-your-tube-stop thriller in which online trolling turns into real-life terror for a young investigative journalist. By day, Sophie works for a celebrity scandal magazine. By night she’s a lifestyle blogger with a dedicated following, including an abusive troll. She goes missing after working on a potentially explosive exposure of a major TV star. While the police have all but given up on the case, her father, Fortune, a banker now based in Dubai, makes it his mission to uncover the truth (he refuses to believe the accusations that have been made about her). At the same time, two sets of large and seemingly random amounts of money vanish from the bank Fortune works for. He decodes the numbers, does more digging, and becomes entrapped in a web of revenge-driven horrors that seem set to destroy both their lives.

Driven by an excruciating sense of paranoia, and twist after twist after twist, this finely-plotted page-turner will keep you reading well into the wee hours. ~ Joanne Owen

Synopsis

Troll by D. B. Thorne

Years ago, Fortune gave up on his daughter, Sophie, after a troubled adolescence. Now she's gone missing, vanished without trace. And after weeks of investigation, the police have given up on her, too. Driven by guilt, and a determination to atone for his failures as a father, he takes on the search himself. He soon finds that his daughter had been living in fear of a vicious online troll who seemed to know far too much about her. Could Sophie's disappearance be linked to this unknown predator? Fortune is about to discovers that monsters which live online don't always stay there...

Reviews

'From the irresistible premise to the heart-thumping conclusion, Troll is incredibly clever, frequently terrifying and brilliantly written' Holly Seddon, bestselling author of Try Not to Breathe

'This is a potent mixture of an authentic, brutal crime story, told with a neat line in dialogue and an appealing hero.' Daily Mail on East of Innocence

'Everyone has a picture of an Essex crime novel. But David Thorne's East of Innocence is a fresh take on this famous county.' Patrick Neale, Bookseller on East of Innocence

'This is a carefully plotted thriller, realistic in its violence and with strong memorable characters. Soon to be adapted into a TV series, it is fast paced and edgy without losing any of its credibility.' We Love This Book on East of Innocence

'A slick, fast-moving and thoroughly readable novel.' Crime Fiction Lover on East of Innocence

'A feisty and likeable hero... punchy and fast-paced. Scotsman on Nothing Sacred Authentic, fast-moving and with a wry ear for dialogue.' Geoffrey Wansell, Daily Mail on East of Innocence
