‘The Nightmare Place’ by Steve Mosby.
This is the latest book from Steve Mosby. Winner of the CWA Dagger in the library 2012.
DI Zoe Dolan is tracking the Creeper – a stalker who’s been breaking into women’s homes and attacking them; no pattern, no clue as to how he’s getting in, and no clue as to who’s next.
A volunteer at a help line, Jane Webster gets a call. What she hopes is a hoax turns out to be the lead Zoe needs – but, it only puts her further into a case that is already taking her dangerously close to the past she’s never fully escaped.
This book is so well written. I read it enthralled. When I’d finished reading the last page the first thing I did was turn back to page one. The first time of reading you’re involved, encapsulated by the story, characters and surroundings, the second time – the details, plot, still had me engrossed with an occasional, Ah, yes, moments.
I’m eager to read more from this exciting author.
Reviewer: Nicky Cooper Brown
Steve Mosby lives and works in Leeds. He is the author of The Third Person, The Cutting Crew, The 50/50 Killer, Cry For Help, Still Bleeding and Black Flowers. His novels have been translated widely.
Nicky Cooper Brown came late to this game we call writing. Growing up, up North, she was always praised for her talents with her hands, rather than her mind, she harboured an artistic flair often drawing and painting into the night. It wasn't until she moved south to the Beautiful picturesque New Forest that she took pen to paper so to speak. Now Nicky enjoys writing short stories and articles and has a funny and light hearted style, but when it comes to her novels she displays a darker side and a taste for psychological thrillers.
