'A thrilling new talent' Peter James 'Utterly compelling' Lesley Kara 'Wow . . . As many twists and turns as a rollercoaster!' Amy Lloyd 'Mightily impressive . . . Deviously plotted' Daily Mail *LONGLISTED FOR THE 2019 CWA DEBUT DAGGER AWARD* The first thriller in the gritty and gripping Holly Wakefield series, perfect for fans of Val McDermid, Angela Marsons, Stuart MacBride and the TV's Luther and Line of Duty. Holly Wakefield works for the NHS as a criminal psychologist specialising in serial killers. She has particular reason to be good at her job - but she keeps that to herself. When DI Bishop from the Met Police approaches Holly to investigate a recent killing, Holly is horrified by the dismembered bodies and the way they have been theatrically positioned. More shocking still is when the pathologist reveals this is not the first time she has seen these mutilations. It means a serial killer is out there, and they're going to kill again - soon. Holly is used to chasing serial killers. But this killer has something in common with Holly that she's kept hidden for as long as she can remember. And for the first time since she was a child, Holly is forced to face the darkness of her past . . . What readers are saying about When Darkness Calls: 'Gripping, shocking, nail biting!'
