Aidan Poole logs onto his laptop late at night to Skype his girlfriend, Zoe. But to his horror, he realises she is not alone.

Completely helpless, all he can do is listen to the sounds of a violent struggle.

And then a chilling silence.

He's desperate to find out if she is OK. But then why is he so hesitant to call the police?

When his messages finally reach them, DCI Jonah Sheens and his team take the case.

And discover the body. . .

Watching from the Dark is an enthralling new thriller that you won't want to miss.

Review quote

Lodge writes perceptively about rivalries between young women, showing how even the best-intended relationships can become toxic * The Sunday Times * You'll be reluctant to put this book down until you've unravelled all its dark plot twists * Culture Fly * A cold blooded chiller from first page to last. I loved She Lies In Wait, Watching From The Dark is even better -- Chris Whitaker The first scene was brilliantly terrifying and the rest of the novel lived up to the strong opening - I had no idea who the killer was and it was superbly plotted. I loved the characters, too, especially the investigating team. I can see that this series is going to be a huge hit. -- Emily Koch, bestselling author of If I Die Before I Wake An absolute gem - I was hooked from the first page -- Jo Jakeman, author of Sticks and Stones A riveting new book, with such vivid characters -- Holly Watt, author of To the Lions A brilliant premise, perfectly executed. A genuine page turner - it kept me guessing right until the end. -- Chris Hammer, bestselling author of Scrublands An excellent detective novel. The opening scene is superb, and sets up the story beautifully. Gripping, multi-layered and fresh. Terrific -- Will Dean, author of Dark Pines
