The creepy new thriller from the globally bestselling author of Richard & Judy pick, The Whisper Man
Katie always looked after her beloved younger brother Chris - until she left him alone for one selfish afternoon, and their picture-perfect family fell apart. Although Chris survived the attack, the scars ran deeper than the ones left across his face. Now they´re adults, and they haven´t spoken in years. Then she gets a call, from Detective Laurence Page.
Chris is the prime suspect at an unusually disturbing crime scene. Alan Hobbes, a distinguished and wealthy philosophy professor, has been brutally murdered. Hobbes was living in a sprawling mansion - but one that remains half-ruined by a decades-old fire, wind and rain howling through the gaping, creaking roof.
Katie knows she should help the police, but she only has one thing on her mind. This is her last, best chance to finally save her brother, and make up for her negligence all those years ago. But she doesn´t realise the case has connections to an awful serial killer - and so she can´t possibly imagine just how much danger she´s in...
