The Death Knock
The second novel from the winner of a short story competition on judged by Stephen King, The Death Knock is gripping, atmospheric and timely. Drawing on the authors own experiences as a news journalist, this novel is as much thought provoking depiction of what it is to be a woman in an all male work environment as it is a fantasically entertaining story.
Is there a serial killer in East Anglia? The police deny it. Journalist Frankie suspects they're wrong. Student Ava knows they're wrong... because she's just been abducted by him.
This is a gripping novel in which suspense meets investigation ‐ as Ava struggles to stay alive, and Frankie finds herself far closer to the case than she'd anticipated...
