Publisher's Summary

Bronny, a young Australian, finds herself down and out in London. She's a sweet girl who has spent her teenage years in a fearful, cautious bubble. She's never taken drugs, had sex or killed anyone. Within six weeks she's done all three.

A group of backpackers break into an abandoned London townhouse seeking a rent-free life of debauchery. They don't realise someone's already there: A terrified woman bound and gagged in the basement.

The Devil's Staircase combines a chick-lit voice and a dark crime noir environment. Not for the faint-hearted, The Devil's Staircase is funny, sexy and disturbing - it will keep you on the edge of your seat from start to finish.

    I write short stories and love reading. I can't stand poor grammar though. I like most types of books but I don't like erotica or romance.

    "It's the not knowing that's worse"

    What a story. It's kind of similar to 'The Girl On The Train' in some ways but this one involves a teenager instead of an adult. It's short so it's pacey and, I have to admit, I did cut out several chapters because i couldn't stand the suspense. At times it has the air of predictability but things don't turn out as you might think. The naration is so-so. The narator sounds slightly slurred and a bit bored at times which she shouldn't really do. I'd recommend this book to anyone who likes a short book to sit through in one. It's a thriller that reads like a teenager is telling it though there are times when it does revert to the third person narative. I hope that anyone reading this book enjoys it as much as I did though I think they might not but that's because a lot of my reviews are at odds with everyone else's. I'd say it's 'The Fault In Our Stars' in one way but hugely more interesting because at least it doesn't babble uselessly and at least the dying teenager lives a bit and doesn't have to wait for some pithy boyfriend to take ehr out of ehr boring babbling depression. There. I even took the opportunity in this review to slag off John greene. How good i shattered?
