'Glittering and sharp, an ice pick of a novel. An astounding talent' AJ Finn, author of The Woman in the Window A haunting, nerve-jangling psychological thriller from Sunday Times bestselling author Richard Montanari set in a small town hiding a very dark secret.

When New York psychologist Will Hardy's wife is killed, he and his teenage daughter Bernadette move into Godwin Hall, a dusty, shut-up mansion in the small town of Abbeville, Ohio.

Meanwhile, Abbeville Chief of Police Ivy Holgrave is investigating the death of a local girl, convinced this may only be the latest in a long line of murders dating back decades - including her own long-missing sister.

But what place does Will's new home have in the story of the missing girls? And what links the killings to the diary of a young woman written over a century earlier?

Richard Montanari's writing is both terrifying and lyrical, a killer combination - Tess Gerritsen You turn the pages as if your very life depends on it - Daily Mail Taut, propulsive and darkly gripping, Montanari is a master of suspense and The Doll Maker is a fiendishly haunting thriller - Chris Ewan A master storyteller - James Ellroy Psychologically dark... hard to put down. A winner - Nelson DeMille Scary Good! - Lisa Gardner A sizzling story that will not only keep you turning the pages, but also provides the kind of tender note not usually found in a thriller as taut and exciting as The Killing Room - Mystery People Montanari is fast becoming the master of murder macabre; no phantoms, no vampires, no supernatural forces at work in these thrilling crime novels, just terrifying, complex, compelling psychopaths who knock other fictional killers into a hangman's hat - Lancashire Evening Post
