The Dark Room...it's the place fear comes from.'Mosby has become renowned for thrillers that reach into dark places where most British crime writers are afraid to go' Express
No connection. No clues. No escape...
For DI Andrew Hicks, solving a murder is logical: your first suspicions are usually right. So when the brutally beaten body of a young woman is found, his attention focuses closely on the ex-boyfriend.
But then more bodies start appearing, all beaten beyond recognition, and there is no connection between any of the victims. Because this is a new type of killer, one who revels in chaos. To survive, Hicks must face not only a serial killer with no discernible motive, but the hidden darkness of his own past.
