Rachel and Dan want to go somewhere hot in January. Recently married and expecting their first baby, they decide on an island in the Caribbean. Why not turn it into a honeymoon, Dan says? A holiday in paradise. It ought to be perfect. Except that, for Rachel, it's not. Things take a sinister turn as soon as they arrive. As furniture shifts and objects fly around, as a waitress begs her to leave and a fellow guest makes her increasingly uneasy, Rachel realises everything she holds most dear is at stake and nothing is quite as it seems...

Recensioner i media

"Myerson takes us into her rising levels of panic, right up to the final plot-twist ... Myerson writes with a fluidity that quickly absorbs the reader" * Independent * "a gripping tale ... Myerson keeps the reader guessing until the very end and provides no easy answers in a deceptively simple read that will compel horror fans while being just as satisfying to her own readership" * Observer * "brimming with black magic, murder and menace. Full of twists and turns, and written with subtlety and intelligence, it's a truly haunting tale written in the best horror tradition" * Sunday Mirror * "Good things happen when writers enter the realm of the unexpected for new horror fiction from Hammer ... The pace is terrific and she keeps your pulse pounding." * The Times, Saturday Review * "a good fast read; just the thing for your next Caribbean holiday" * Evening Standard * "genuinely scary and enthralling" * Spectator * "a genuinely creepy tale from a very skilled author" * Rich Tapestry Reads * "Julie Myerson's novels are perfectly suited to long, drifting afternoons spent in empty houses with only the odd, atmospheric creak of pipe or groan of plank for company." * Daily Telegraph *
