He wants your life...

Matt Langley used to be somebody. Back in the late '90s his star shone bright. Thanks to his debut novel, the shocking The Devil's Debt, he was at the forefront of the Bright Young Things. He was on chat shows and culture shows. He was the man of the moment. And then it all stopped, because there was no second book.

Now, with his marriage to Naz on the rocks, they're trying to start over. They've sold the house that The Devil's Debt built and moved to a farmhouse deep in the wilds of Northumbria, where no one knows them, and for a while their new life is fragile but good. Furthermore, Matt's leading a writing group at the library and is even thinking about writing again.

Marlin is part of that writing group. He's a quiet young man who has survived things no kid should ever have to. On meeting Matt he shows him his battered copy of The Devil's Debt. The book is filled with underlinings and notes and, he soon discovers, messages from the young man's dead mother.

That book serves as the basis for a bond between the two. Matt feels like they have a kinship, and wants to help the young writer. So, when he and Naz find him sleeping rough they invite him into their house for a week or so, until Marlin is back on his feet. But Marlin is a malevolent cuckoo they've brought into their home. And that was their first big mistake...

PRAISE FOR NICK CURRAN

'I was hooked on Step Inside My Soul from the first page. An intelligent story, cleverly written, and with a cast of well-drawn and complex characters. This gripping psychological thriller drips with quiet menace on every page and builds to a satisfyingly shocking conclusion. Absolutely brilliant!' Russ Thomas

'Grabs the reader from the very first page - and never lets go' DAILY MAIL

'Taut and properly disturbing. . . Impressive' The Critic


'Oh boy, this is going to keep you up at night, or abandoning everything else to race through the pages' Peterborough Telegraph

'Throws out a great hook and then twists and turns its way to a heartstopping climax' Stephen Gallagher

'Not just a ruthlessly compelling novel of suspense but an unflinching examination of the repercussions of a crime. Disturbing, harrowing and moving, it signals the arrival of a new master of crime fiction.' Ramsey Campbell

'Taut, compelling, original. An emotionally charged story that will leave you thinking of the main character long after finishing the book. A true page-turner' J A Corrigan

'Curran's debut is an absorbing, dark and suspenseful thriller. He is a writer to watch' David Fennell

'An utterly gripping Cobenesque mystery keeps you turning the pages fiercely to find out what's happening' Crime Podcast FM
