Summary

The chilling and outstanding new stand-alone thriller from C. M. Ewan, author of Safe House: if your family was targeted in the middle of the night, what would you do?

You are asleep. A noise wakes you.

You stir, unsure why, and turn to your wife.

Then you hear it.

Glass. Crunching underfoot.

Your worst fears are about to be realised.

Someone is inside your home.

Your choices are limited.

You can run. Or stay and fight. 

What would you do?

Perfect for fans of T M Logan’s Lies and Mark Edwards’ The Retreat.

WOW!! FANTASTIC. GRIPPING. LOVED IT

NOW....this is what I'm talking about!!! this was right up my Street.

Loved it! brilliant story, relatable characters, great twists! played out like a movie in my head while I was listening! I found myself taking my phone everywhere so I didnt have to stop listening as I was on the edge of my seat!
My emotions were all over the place when it came to Buster the dog, made me cry, laugh, cheer, shout and pray that it would all be ok for him in the end, and for the family! GRIPPING...LOVED IT.....YOU WONT BE DISAPOINTED.

Well done and thank you to the author, it's good to have a decent book to listen to!

A great read for a dark night.

Kept me up all night in sheer terror.
Loved the narrators voice too. At a loss now it’s over.

I really don’t understand the 5* reviews

This story was so drawn out and tedious that I found myself shouting at my phone.
The main character was so self obsessed that no matter what the problem or situation was...... A gun to someone else's head, a dramatic chase, or any similar situation was always described in long drawn out descriptions of 'How it affected ME'.

The whole book was totally beyond the bounds of belief, it was just plain silly! And the main character was unbelievably irritating!

Amazing book

This is another of those thrillers which had me hooked from the very first sentence. I couldn’t stop listening once I’d started. I read it in one day. You know when you read a book and you know rationally that you can stop and it’ll be there the next day, but you still can’t? When you can’t sleep until you know what happens? That’s what this one did for me. Really well narrated as well. The performance added to the story as much as the plot did. If Psychological thrillers are your thing, this book is definitely for you! My emotions towards different characters changed all the time. I went from hating one, to feeling sorry for them, to disliking another. For me, that’s the mark of a good thriller. I won’t lie, the very end bought a tear to my eye. I can’t recommend this highly enough for its suspense, terror, emotions. I absolutely adored Buster, and was routing for him through the whole book. A must read for my fellow thriller fans. Claustrophobic, terrifying, sad, and at times if you’re like me, you’ll want to hit something!
