Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

'This will haunt you. Riveting!' Shari Lapena, author of THE COUPLE NEXT DOOR

If the walls could talk . . . they'd tell her to leave. Now.

When Ava arrives at Brodie's Watch, she thinks she has found the perfect place to hide from her past. Something terrible happened, something she is deeply ashamed of, and all she wants is to forget.

But the old house on the hill both welcomes and repels her and Ava quickly begins to suspect she is not alone. Either that or she is losing her mind.

The house is full of secrets, but is the creeping sense of danger coming from within its walls, or from somewhere else entirely?

'Beguiling! Gerritsen is at her atmospheric best in this spine-tingling tale of a lone woman, an old house, and all the secrets everyone tries to hide.' Lisa Gardner

'A close-knit community, a gothic house, and a shadowy stranger inside . . . I love Tess's writing and The Shape of Night is as compulsive as it gets.' Lesley Kara

'Written with verve.' i magazine
