Description

'Disturbing, blackly funny and completely compulsive' - ALEX NORTH

'a SERIOUSLY creepy thriller. I may never venture into the loft again' - MARK BILLINGHAM

'A brilliantly chilling story with tension on every page' - T.M. LOGAN


THERE'S A SERIAL KILLER ON THE RUN
AND HE'S HIDING IN YOUR HOUSE

Thomas Brogan is a serial killer. With a trail of bodies in his wake and the police hot on his heels, it seems like Thomas has nowhere left to hide. That is until he breaks into an abandoned house at the end of a terrace on a quiet street. And when he climbs up into the loft, he realises that he can drop down into all the other houses through the shared attic space.

That's when the real fun begins. Because the one thing that Thomas enjoys even more than killing is playing games with his victims - the lonely old woman, the bickering couple, the tempting young newlyweds. And his new neighbours have more than enough dark secrets to make this game his best one yet...

Do you fear The Resident? Soon you'll be dying to meet him.
