LoveReading View on In The Night Room

Dark, elegantly written with a fantastic supernatural twist, this is first rate.  It is also indescribable, it hits you in that cold place of wonder where you are afraid yet compelled to read more.  It keeps twisting and folding back, building layer upon layer.  It concerns two authors, emails from the dead and a race to discover … but I’m not telling you any more.

Comparison: Stephen King, Neil Gaiman, James Herbert.

In The Night Room Synopsis

Award-winning children's book author Willy Patrick seems to be having a breakdown. Figures from her past are coming to visit her, most frighteningly her dead daughter, Holly, who was murdered together with Willy’s first husband. Then Willy discovers her mysterious fiancé may well have been responsible for the deaths of her husband and daughter.

After fleeing the house they are renovating she runs into Tim Underhill, also an author haunted by the deaths of loved ones. In fact, his long-deceased nine-year-old sister recently appeared to him on the way to his favourite diner, and he's been getting strange emails from people in his home town – none of whom are still alive. But what really spooks him is the realization that Willy seems to be the heroine of the book he is currently working on, in precisely the mortal peril he has invented for her…
