Description

Paul Davis forgets things. Why he walked into a room. Who he spoke to, and what they said. What he promised his wife he'd do. Sometimes it's too much, and the panic takes hold.

But he wasn't always like this.

Eight months ago, Paul was attacked - left for dead after seeing something he shouldn't have - and has been piecing his life back together ever since.

During the days, therapy helps. But at night, he hears noises that no one else can. That nobody believes. Sometimes he thinks someone is in the house. Other times, the sounds are far stranger.

Either he's losing his mind - or someone wants him to think he is. Or maybe something even darker is waiting downstairs...

Review quote

No one can thrill you and chill you better than Barclay -- Tess Gerritsen A suspense master -- Stephen King Linwood Barclay's novels - as intelligent as Michael Connelly's, as compelling as Harlan Coben's - never fail to astonish. A Noise Downstairs, his best work yet, is a cobra of a story: smooth, slippery, unnerving . . . and likely to strike when you least expect it. I devoured this book -- A.J. Finn Vintage Barclay - an utterly compelling read with a twist you won't see coming. I loved it! -- Shari Lapena One of the world's finest thriller writers on the top of his game. A Noise Downstairs is a blinder - his best yet -- Peter James With a tight plot, delivered in short, punchy chapters, it's hard to resist racing through - to the final twist. * SUNDAY MIRROR * The king of the thriller returns with this spooky tale of a man recovering from serious trauma who starts to hear noises in the night. * THE INDEPENDENT * cunning.. twist-packed * SUNDAY TIMES * a creepy and compelling standalone.. Barclay expertly weaves together the various plot strands to reach a wholly unexpected conclusion. -- Laura Wilson * THE GUARDIAN *
