Panic Room

by Robert Goddard

Panic Room Synopsis

Sometimes the danger is on the inside . . . High on a Cornish cliff sits a vast uninhabited mansion. Uninhabited except for Blake, a young woman of dubious background, secretive and alone, currently acting as housesitter. The house has a panic room. Cunningly concealed, steel lined, impregnable - and apparently closed from within. Even Blake doesn't know it's there. She's too busy being on the run from life, from a story she thinks she's escaped. But her remote existence is going to be invaded when people come looking for the house's owner, missing rogue pharma entrepreneur, Jack Harkness. Suddenly the whole world wants to know where his money has gone. Soon people are going to come knocking on the door, people with motives and secrets of their own, who will be asking Blake the sort of questions she can't - or won't - want to answer. And will the panic room ever give up its secrets? PANIC ROOM is Robert Goddard at his nerve-shredding best. A sliver of a mystery kicks off a juggernaut of a thriller. Layers of secrets, half truths and lies must be peeled back to reveal what really lies within.

Panic Room Press Reviews

Is this his best yet? For years Robert Goddard has been my go-to guy for a certain kind of storytelling, full of easy charm blended with sinister menace, and propulsive pace with twisty plotting * Lee Child * Splendidly serpentine and immaculately plotted, this is thriller writing at its very best * Daily Mail * Robert Goddard has been writing imaginative first-class thrillers for nearly 30 years . . . Panic Room is an absorbing example of his superior storytelling, an excellent read * The Times * This is a tense read, fill of characteristic Goddard twists * Guardian * As always, Goddard can be relied upon to entertain * The Literary Review *
