Description

'This will haunt you. Riveting!' Shari Lapena, author of THE COUPLE NEXT DOOR

If the walls could talk . . . they'd tell her to leave. Now.

When Ava arrives at Brodie's Watch, she thinks she has found the perfect place to hide from her past. Something terrible happened, something she is deeply ashamed of, and all she wants is to forget.

But the old house on the hill both welcomes and repels her and Ava quickly begins to suspect she is not alone. Either that or she is losing her mind.

The house is full of secrets, but is the creeping sense of danger coming from within its walls, or from somewhere else entirely?

'Beguiling! Gerritsen is at her atmospheric best in this spine-tingling tale of a lone woman, an old house, and all the secrets everyone tries to hide.' Lisa Gardner

'A close-knit community, a gothic house, and a shadowy stranger inside . . . I love Tess's writing and The Shape of Night is as compulsive as it gets.' Lesley Kara

'Written with verve.' i magazine

Review quote

Curl up in your favorite reading chair and let Tess Gerritsen whisk you away to a coastal town reminiscent of Daphne Du Maurier's best settings. As the chills run down your spine, and the creeping sense of danger curls your toes, don't say I didn't warn you: you are in for a dark and sexy night, and you will be up very late with Tess' twisted, haunting tale. * Iris Johansen * A captivating and seductive tale exploring the dark embrace of grief and guilt, reminding us that nothing can haunt us as insidiously as our personal demons. This is the incomparable Gerritsen at her finest! * Sylvia Day * Beguiling! Gerritsen is at her atmospheric best in this spine-tingling tale of a lone woman, an old house, and all the secrets everyone tries to hide. * Lisa Gardner * A close-knit community, a gothic house, and a shadowy stranger inside . . . I love Tess's writing and The Shape Of Night is as compulsive as it gets. * Lesley Kara, author of THE RUMOUR * This will haunt you. Riveting! * Shari Lapena, bestselling author of THE COUPLE NEXT DOOR *

About Tess Gerritsen

Bestselling author Tess Gerritsen is also a physician, and she brings to her novels her first-hand knowledge of emergency and autopsy rooms. Her thrillers starring homicide detective Jane Rizzoli and medical examiner Maura Isles inspired the hit TV series Rizzoli & Isles. But Tess's interests span far more than medicine and crime. As an anthropology student at Stanford University, she catalogued centuries-old human remains, and she continues to travel the world, driven by her fascination with ancient cultures and bizarre natural phenomena.
