`DCI Matilda Darke is the perfect heroine' Elly Griffiths

The third book in Michael Wood's darkly compelling crime series featuring DCI Matilda Darke. Perfect for fans of Stuart MacBride, Mark Billingham and Val McDermid

Eight killers. One house. And the almost perfect murder...

Starling House is home to some of Britain's deadliest teenagers, still too young for prison.

When the latest arrival is found brutally murdered, DCI Matilda Darke and her team investigate, and discover a prison manager falling apart and a sabotaged security system. Neither the staff nor the inmates can be trusted.

The only person Matilda believes is innocent is facing prison for the rest of his life. With time running out, she must solve the unsolvable to save a young man from his fate, and find a murderer in a house full of killers...

MEDIA REVIEWS

Praise for A ROOM FULL OF KILLERS:

`You can count on Michael Wood to deliver a deliciously twisted and intriguing plot, leading to a surprise ending by a likeable and very real protagonist, Matilda Darke' Yrsa Sigurdardottir

`A pitch-black concept, tightly delivered and played at exhilarating pace' Paul Finch

Praise for OUTSIDE LOOKING IN:

`At one point in this tense thriller, the endearing protagonist reflects that the investigation is like having "all the pieces of the jigsaw but...from different boxes". Matilda Darke is right - and only in the final pages is the full picture revealed...' Chris Simms

`Crackling dialogue, dark wit and an exciting ending. Recommended if you liked Happy Valley' Mark Edwards

`DCI Matilda Darke is going places' James Oswald

`A compelling, addictive read, it's hard to put down. I really enjoyed getting to know DCI Matilda Darke. She's strong character with real depth' Robert Bryndza, bestselling author of THE GIRL IN THE ICE

Praise for FOR REASONS UNKNOWN:

`A beautifully written book with a dark heart and a secret that impacts on generations' Sarah Ward

`A skilfully crafted and compelling debut that hooks from the off and will keep you guessing until the final page. I can't wait for Michael Wood's next one' M.R. Hall

`Gripping, sad and unexpected - this is a terrific debut. Wood writes with the confidence and flair of an old hand' Alex Marwood

`A strong debut with an intriguing mystery at its heart. The first thing that strikes me is how well he writes female characters. The novel is packed full of strong women' Ben Cheetham

`An appealing - and refreshingly human - lead character is swept along in this ingeniously plotted, fast paced debut' Chris Simms

'This explosive novel is already making a bang - with reviewers comparing Michael's work to that of his heroes Val McDermid and James Oswald' Sheffield Star
