BECKY MASTERMAN Fear the Darkness
Addictive, intriguing, terrifying: the stunning new thriller starring Brigid Quinn. When a local teenager dies in a tragic drowning accident, the community thinks Brigid might be able to help comfort the family. But when she does, something doesn’t add up. And it’s no easier at home: after a bereavement in the family, Brigid has reluctantly taken in her troubled niece to give her a break before she starts college. For Brigid, death seems to be wherever she turns. But as she herself starts to feel unwell, it’s her own mortality that is the most troubling. As she tries to get to the bottom of a series of allegedly accidental deaths and increasingly gruesome occurrences at home, she slowly realises that maybe this time, she’s let the darkness inside the only place she ever felt safe. Becky Masterman spends her days working in a publishing house and her nights writing stylish, exhilarating thrillers. Her debut novel, Rage Against the Dying, was a Richard & Judy Book Club pick, and has been shortlisted for a host of awards, including the CWA Gold Dagger, an Anthony for Best First Novel and a Barry for Best First Novel.
