How much danger would you face to follow a story? Journalist Frankie is about to find out in the gripping new crime novel from Elodie Harper, winner of the Stephen King and Guardian short story competition.
Three women have been found dead in East Anglia. The police deny a connection. TV news reporter Frankie smells a story...
Ava knows that the threat is real. She's been kidnapped by someone claiming to be the killer: a stranger who seems to know everything about her.
As Frankie follows the case, she enters a terrifying online world where men's rage against women may be turning murderous - and where her persistence might just make her a target. And Ava must struggle not only to stay alive... but to stay sane.
From journalist Elodie Harper, THE DEATH KNOCK is a compelling story of the worst that man can do and the hunt for the truth - at all costs.
Praise for The Binding Song - -
A splendidly unsettling debut - a chilling mystery to be read with the lights on and your back to the wall.
Brilliant. I had shivers.
I was completely engrossed. A sinister, creepy read that leaves the reader questioning everyone and trusting no-one.
Elodie Harper's first novel, set in HMP Halvergate, has become all the more possible, given what else has been going on beyond our prison walls. Plotting, pace and writing render The Binding Song a must read.
Creepy from the word go, utterly compelling and hauntingly tragic - but I'll warn you now - you might have to sleep with the lights on.
Breathtakingly atmospheric and chilling
