One of the most atmospheric novels you will ever encounter – you will feel the sea air in your lungs and the terror in your dreams. A crime novel of the very first order.

Trust me - Cummins is a keeper

Lee Child

A riveting read that will keep you up at night


Rattle was one of the most chilling and gripping thrillers released last year. The Collector [. . .] is even more creepy and unsettling with tension slowly ramped up to build to a sensational finale that will make you gasp.
