Product description


' In THE DISPOSSESSED Margaret Murphy . . . uncovers the horrifying snake-pit that is life for asylum-seekers in modern Britain . . . an eye-opening shocker of a novel, in which the links between sharp practice and crime form a chain to bind the unwary.' TLS

'Exemplary chiller . . . If Murphy's appointed task is to scare the reader...she succeeds brilliantly.' Literary Review on DARKNESS FALLS

'A cracking good read with a masterly doubletake.' Scotsman on DARKNESS FALLS

'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

'Surprisingly teasing . . . visual, well-paced thriller.' Daily Mirror on DARKNESS FALLS

'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

'Ms Murphy handles her complex plot with a sure hand and brings it to a stunning climax.' Sunday Telegraph on WEAVING SHADOWS

Book Description

Set in Liverpool, Margaret Murphy's new novel evokes the gritty reality of crime and unfolds a searing story of murder, mistrust, despair and revenge.
