Summary

What she can't see can hurt her 

I have this dream. 

In it, I'm in the house, and it's dark, and I know someone's in there with me.

Even though I can't see them....

For Sarah and Patrick, family life has always been easy. But when Sarah's mother dies, it sends Sarah into a downwards spiral. Knowing they need a fresh start, Patrick moves the family to the beachside house he grew up in. 

But there is a catch: while their new home carries only happy memories for Patrick, to everyone else it's known as the Murder House - named for the family that was killed there. 

Patrick is adamant they can make it perfect again, though with their children plagued by nightmares and a constant sense they're being watched, Sarah's not so sure.  

Because the longer they live in their 'dream home', the more different her loving husband becomes.... 

A chilling psychological thriller about dark family dysfunction and the secrets that haunt us, The Woman in the Dark will captivate fans of B A Paris, Clare Mackintosh and Stephen King's The Shining.

Chilling throughout

I found this story extremely gripping and beautifully narrated throughout,although I did find the audio slightly distorted.
You won’t be disappointed, a great mix of crime and a touch of the supernatural (or is it), read it and find out.

Superior Thriller

This was a really good book. It was very tense from start to finish and a good depiction of a slow descent into insanity and the unraveling of a family. The description of the house was very creepy and as a listener, it came to life and the impact it had on the family. The narration was good with just the right amount of fear projected through Siriol Jenkins voice for the main character. I sort of guessed the twist but it did not spoil it for me. A good listen.
