Into The Darkest Corner
By Elizabeth Haynes
Published by Myriad Editions
Catherine knows a good catch when she sees one: Lee seems almost too perfect to be true. But his erratic behaviour means that Catherine is increasingly isolated. Driven into the darkest corner of her world, and trusting no one, she plans a meticulous escape. Until one phone call changes everything.
Elizabeth Haynes is a police intelligence analyst. She started writing fiction in 2006 thanks to the annual challenge of National Novel Writing Month (Nanowrimo) and the encouragement of the creative writing courses at West Dean College. She lives in a village near Maidstone, Kent, with her husband and son. Into the Darkest Corner is her first novel.
‘Haynes's powerful account of domestic violence is disquieting, yet unsensationalist. This is a gripping book on a topic which can never be highlighted enough.' Guardian ‘A very impressive first novel. This is a fantastic personal read with plenty for a reading group to discuss.’ Newbooks Magazine ‘Within ten minutes I couldn't put it down. There's real dramatic tension in this book and when I got to the end the first thing that I did was to turn back to the beginning again.’ The Bookbag ‘A tense and thought-provoking début novel with dark moments. This novel by a police intelligence analyst is certainly well worth the read.’ Shotsmag ‘A compulsive thriller with sufficient twists and plot turns to keep the most action-avaricious of readers satisfied.’ Bookgroup.info Price £ 7.99 Binding: Paperback Publication date 14/02/2011
One of the best books I have read in ages. Tense and well crafted.
Absolutely brilliant novel, couldn't put it down until I finished it at 4am in the morning. Well done Elizabeth for an amazing first novel.
Fantastic book, can't wait to read the next one.
I read this amazing book while on holiday in the UK from Australia. It was a rivetting read and I could not put the book down. I will definately recommend this book to my friends here. I look forward to more books written by this author.
This is an absolutely stunning book which had me gripped from the moment I opened it. I've recommended it everyone I've spoken to! It left me wanting to read more of Elizabeth's work! Fantastically Brilliant.
A gripping novel. I was sucked in and couldn't stop reading.
I confess I'm not usually a reader of fiction but this fantastic book was recommended to me and had me turning pages in suspense. Elizabeth Haynes deserves to do very well with this debut novel. A gripping read!
Loved this book. A real page turner with a scary edge. Very well written. I shall be reading more of Elizabeth's books,
I read this just because we share a surname, but it turned out to be one on the best books I'd read for a long time.
Beautifully crafted thriller. Fabulous.
I love this book, such a page turner. Full of terrible suspense. A great debut novel and one I have recommended to many friends, who have all loved it.
A compelling read that kept me awake at nights
I bought this book on a friend's recommendation and spent 2 days in Elizabeth Haynes world, my house went uncleaned and my hair looked like I'd been dragged through a hedge backwards. I couldn't put the book down until I had finished and, as an avid reader, I can say this is the best book I have read this year.
Couldn't put it down!
A fantastic book!
This is a wonderful book that deserves all the praise it has received. Hope you win, Elizabeth!
