An adrenaline-pumping suspense novel from the author of Beyond Fear. What if a stranger is watching you sleep - and no one believes you?
Carly Townsend is starting over after a decade of tragedy and pain. In a new town and a new apartment she's determined to leave the memories and failures of her past behind.
However that dream is shattered in the dead of night when she is woken by the shadow of a man next to her bed, silently watching her. And it happens week after week.
Yet there is no way an intruder could have entered the apartment. It's on the fourth floor, the doors are locked and there is no evidence that anyone has been inside.
With the police doubting her story, and her psychologist suggesting it's all just a dream, Carly is on her own. And being alone isn't so appealing when you're scared to go to sleep . . .
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
We read this chilling thriller in two days, poised on a knife’s edge of suspense the entire time. Carly Townsend has moved to Newcastle to escape the traumas of the past. With its soaring ceilings and gorgeous wood floors, her new loft apartment is a dream come true…until she wakes up the third night there with an intruder leaning over her bed. Darkest Place is relentlessly scary, but there’s a satisfying romantic subplot to offset the tension. It’s the kind of unpredictable, heart-pumping story that will appeal to fans of The Girl on the Train.

It took me a while to commit to purchasing this book... Just wasn't sure from the blurb if I would be into it, but I'm so glad I did! Really great read and kept me guessing until the end.
Also loved that I knew all the places in the book - next time I'm in Newcastle I'm going to look for the warehouse that inspired this book!
Best of the best.
I couldn’t put this book down. I had to know. I had to keep reading. And I wasn’t disappointed. I have read all the books by the author & by a long shot this is the best ever. Be prepared, it’s not for the fain hearted & don’t forget to check the locks on your doors at night!! Better than the five stars I gave it. Thankyou jaye Ford for such a cracking read.
