A Noise Downstairs (Paperback)Linwood Barclay (author)
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 . . .

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
Vintage Barclay - an utterly compelling read with a twist you won't see coming. I loved it! -- Shari Lapena
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
A suspense master -- Stephen King
No one can thrill you and chill you better than Barclay -- Tess Gerritsen

“Loved this thriller”
I loved this thriller! I couldn’t put it down.
This story was super creepy. I couldn’t tell if Paul was going crazy or if things were actually happening to him. It was hard to tell. At first, I couldn’t tell why the... More
