‘I was gripped immediately’ Katerina Diamond, Sunday Times bestseller
How much do you know about the couple next door?
When Emily and Ben move in next door to Dr Burman and his wife Alisha, they are keen to get to know their new neighbours. Outgoing and sociable, Emily tries to befriend the doctor’s wife, but Alisha is strangely subdued, barely leaving the house, and terrified of answering the phone.
When Emily goes missing a few weeks later, Ben is plunged into a panic. His wife has left him a note, but can she really have abandoned him for another man? Or has Emily’s curiosity about the couple next door led her straight into danger?
A gripping, sinister thriller with a twist you won’t see coming from the international bestseller Lisa Stone.
Praise for Lisa Stone
‘This is a cracking good read that had me hooked from the beginning until the end. Full of murders, spiritualistic intrigue and just a hint of romance. It is quick paced, extremely thought provoking and full of twists and turns. I didn't want to put this book down.’ Amazon reviewer
‘Fantastic book, couldn’t turn the pages quickly enough!’ Amazon reviewer
‘A well-written and extremely addictive novel that will stick in your head long after putting it down.’ Amazon reviewer
‘I flew through The Darkness Within; it maintained a dark and gritty atmosphere whilst covering some rather disturbing subject matters. But despite there being some very emotive and hard to read scenes described, I raced through the pages desperate to know how it would end and I certainly wasn’t disappointed.’ Goodreads reviewer
‘A unique plot and storyline – I enjoyed the book immensely. It really makes you think.’ Goodreads reviewer
‘What a powerful novel. I have read all of most of Cathy Glass’s books and here she is writing under a new name Lisa Stone. I love the fact she has branched into crime thriller and I think she has done it really well.’ Goodreads reviewer
‘I really enjoyed this. Interesting and captivating story line, great characters and easy to read – not the subject matter which is difficult, dark and pretty violent, but the style of writing. A gripping thriller.’ Goodreads reviewer
‘The Darkness Within is certainly a dark and gripping read and one that will win over new fans as well as old.’ Goodreads reviewer
About the author
“As a writer of suspense thrillers I often ask myself what if? What if this happened instead of that? Or why a particular person reacted as they did. So often fact is stranger than fiction; these books start with a fact which I develop.”
Lisa Stone lives in England, has 3 children, and 27 books published under the pseudonym Cathy Glass, many of which have become best-sellers.
Very good, kept me interested
What an excellent book!
My heart was catching in my throat almost from the beginning of this book! Like a horror movie where you want to shout at the screen to tell people where to look or what to do! So very well written and well read, I was anxious all while listening. Good books are rare these days, but this one was great!
..... Just OK
This story was OK but did not have any unforeseeable twists or turns. It was not even suspenseful or particularly captivating. It was straightforward and just OK.
