ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- Tim has been crashing on the lounge in his ex-girlfriend’s flat, and it’s getting uncomfortable. For one, her boyfriend isn’t happy about the arrangement. So when she suggests he have a look at a cheap room in a house in Fairlight, he reluctantly goes – only to find the house is a mansion and the room has a million dollar view across the Harbour. It’s also ten minutes walk from his job in his father’s restaurant, close to the surf and just about perfect. The only slight drawback is the owner – Anna, a young woman, obviously troubled and as it turns out, suffering from agoraphobia. Still, it seems like a good deal, so Tim moves in. However, strange things start to happen, and Tim doesn’t know if it’s his imagination, or something far more sinister… A competent, unapologetically commercial page-turning read in the so-called 'new adult' genre. Lindy


When Tim Ellison finds a cheap room to rent in the perfect location in Sydney it looks like a huge stroke of luck. In fact the room comes with a condition, and the owner of the house, the mysterious Anna London, is unfriendly and withdrawn. When strange and terrifying things start happening in the house at night, Tim wonders if taking the room is a mistake. But then his feelings for Anna start to change, and when her past comes back with a vengeance, Tim is caught right in the middle of it. A thrilling, rollercoaster of a story - read it with the lights on!
