Product description


A skilfully plotted story with strongly drawn characters. (Sunday Telegraph (Susanna Yager))

There is an assurance about the menace that makes this first book welcome. (Tom Deveson, Sunday Times on GOODNIGHT, MY ANGEL)

An accomplished first novel by Margaret Murphy [who] knows how to wind up the psychological tension as confidently as many more experienced suspense writers. (Susanna Yager, Sunday Telegraph on GOODNIGHT, MY A)

Just what British crime writing is crying out for - a compassionate, grass roots British novel with the pace, energy and impeccable research of an American thriller (Mo Hayder on Darkness Falls)

Sets new standards in the psychological thriller...It's hard to believe something this assured is a first novel. A remarkable debut - threatening, thrilling and thoroughly authentic. (Val McDermid on GOODNIGHT, MY ANGEL)

A piece of absolutely terrifying writing...This is crime's most compelling,chilling book ever. (North Wales Chronicle)

Debut crime novels that can be praised unreservedly are rare. Murphy creates terrific menace and tension, well-climaxed. (Marcel Berlins, The Times on GOODNIGHT, MY ANGEL)

Darkness Falls is a model of what the modern suspense thriller should be -- tense, scary, page-turning and stomach-churning -- because we care most of all about what happens to the characters. Set aside a day -- you won't be able to put it down once it has you in its grip. (Val McDermid on DARKNESS FALLS)

Exemplary chiller...If Murphy's appointed task is to scare the reader...she succeeds brilliantly. (Literary Review)

'Clara will fascinate readers . . . fans will value this dark psychological thriller.' Midwest Book Review

Book Description

Margaret Murphy's new novel is her masterpiece - an unputdownable brew of suspense and terror.
