Aidan Poole logs on to his laptop late at night to Skype his girlfriend, Zoe. To his horror, he realises that there is someone else in her flat, and Aidan can only listen to the sounds of a violent struggle - and then the chilling sound of silence.

Aidan is desperate to find out if Zoe is OK. But then why is he so hesitant to call the police?

When his messages finally reach them, DCI Jonah Sheen's and his team take the case - and discover the body. They soon find that no-one has a bad word to say about Zoe, a big-hearted young woman at the centre of a curious web of waifs and strays, every one relying on her for support.

Each of these so-called friends is hiding dark secrets and buried resentments- has one of them been driven to do something unspeakable?

Or might Aidan have the biggest secret of them all?

Reviews for Watching from the Dark

A brilliant premise, perfectly executed. A genuine page turner - it kept me guessing right until the end. -- Chris Hammer, bestselling author of Scrublands The first scene was brilliantly terrifying and the rest of the novel lived up to the strong opening - I had no idea who the killer was and it was superbly plotted. I loved the characters, too, especially the investigating team. I can see that this series is going to be a huge hit. -- Emily Koch, bestselling author of If I Die Before I Wake An absolute gem - I was hooked from the first page -- Jo Jakeman, author of Sticks and Stones A riveting new book, with such vivid characters -- Holly Watt, author of To the Lions An excellent detective novel. The opening scene is superb, and sets up the story beautifully. Gripping, multi-layered and fresh. Terrific -- Will Dean, author of Dark Pines
