Darkest Place

What if a stranger is watching you sleep – And no one believes you?
It took three tries to dial the numbers. Forever for a voice to answer. She wanted to shout, managed to pull it back to a hiss. ‘There’s someone in my apartment.’

Darkest-place-2Carly Townsend is starting over after a decade of tragedy and pain. In a new town and a new apartment she’d determined to leave the memories and failures of the 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.

Sydney Morning Herald:
Australian writer Jaye Ford continues to impress with her well crafted, romantic suspense thrillers.  Carly Townsend flees the trauma of her past and heads to Newcastle for a new start.  She buys a fourth floor apartment in an old converted warehouse and looks forward to her studies.  However, after only three days she is woken in the early hours by the presence of a man standing over her. She calls the police, but they can find no evidence of a break-in.  When it keeps happening, the police label her a troublemaker.  Desperately, Carly tries to work out if her life is under threat or if she is just imagining it.  A good psychological chiller.

Reading, Writing & Reisling:
This is a brilliant example of domestic noir and the unreliable narrator. I loved every word on every page. Just one problem – now I have finished reading there is a long wait till the next book arrives from this brilliant author. How fast can you write Jaye Ford?

Editors Notes:
‘We read this chilling thriller in two days, poised on a knife’s edge of suspense the entire time … It’s the kind of unpredictable, heart-pumping story that will appeal to fans of The Girl on the Train.
