July 2017 Debut of the Month.

A simply told, yet dramatic and readable tale about a young man whose behaviour changes beyond all recognition after receiving a heart transplant. This is the first novel by the author, now writing as Lisa Stone, she is best known for her memoirs of the fostering world, writing under the name of Cathy Glass. If you enjoy Cathy’s emotional and thought-provoking tales relating to the children in her care, then you will more than likely enjoy this fictional tale. Lisa Stone writes with a clear, uncomplicated style, yet the subject matter of personality changes after transplants is provocative and fascinating. ‘The Darkness Within’ delves into a fascinating theory, and stamps its mark in a startling tale full of impact.

Synopsis

A gripping new crime novel from the global bestseller Cathy Glass writing as Lisa Stone 'The Darkness Within hooked me from the start. Once you start you won't be able to stop!' Katerina Diamond, No.1 bestselling author of The Teacher You know your son better than anyone. Don't you? When critically ill Jacob Wilson is given a life-saving heart transplant, his parents are relieved that their loving son has been saved. However, before long, his family are forced to accept that something has changed in Jacob. Their once loving son is slowly being replaced by a violent man whose mood swings leave them terrified - but is it their fault? Jacob's girlfriend, Rosie, is convinced the man she loves is suffering from stress. But when his moods turn on her, she begins to doubt herself - and she can only hide the bruises for so long. When a terrible crime is committed, Jacob's family are forced to confront their darkest fears. Has the boy they raised become a monster? Or is someone else to blame? This is a spellbinding crime novel with a dark heart from the worldwide bestseller Cathy Glass, writing as Lisa Stone.

About the Author

Lisa Stone lives in England, has 3 children, and 27 books published under the pseudonym Cathy Glass, many of which have become bestsellers.

“As a writer of suspense thrillers I often ask myself what if? What if this happened instead of that? Or why a particular person reacted as they did. So often fact is stranger than fiction; these books start with a fact which I develop.”
