An Impossible Crime Scene
A wealthy woman is found brutally murdered in the locked fortress of her London mansion. Surrounding her are four mysterious objects, including a book on forensics by Dr Laughton Rees.
An Inescapable Past
As a teenager, Laughton's life was destroyed after witnessing her mother's brutal murder. Now a mother herself and forensic analyst, she is an expert on how to read crime scenes - but never works live cases.
An Uncatchable Killer
Pressured by the lead detective to help with the investigation, Laughton begins to realise that the objects left by the body are not just about the victim, they're also about her. Her childhood was destroyed by one killer. Now she must catch another before her daughter's is destroyed too.

'There are times when I read another author's novel and it's so darn good I just want to put down my own pen and retire because I can't match it. This is that book. I was riveted, flummoxed, and completely captivated by these fascinating characters. The numerous twists kept me guessing all the way through.'
Tess Gerritsen author of the Rizzoli & Isles series
'An intense, compelling page-turner that is perfect for fans of Thomas Harris, from a hugely talented writer on top at the top of his game.'
Steve Cavanagh, author of Thirteen
'Simon Toyne knows his stuff, and in Dark Objects he puts it to excellent use, constructing a thrilling plot driven by intriguing, complex characters. The pacing is superb and as the suspense ratchets up you will find it impossible to put the book down.'
Peter Robinson, author of Not Dark Yet
'A stunning novel! Part wily procedural, part relentless psychological thriller, Dark Objects will keep you on the edge of your seat from start to finish. And what a masterful voice, Toyne brings to his fiction!'
Jeffery Deaver, author of Hunting Time and The Bone Collector
'Simon Toyne, already one of the UK's top thriller writers, really has outdone himself with Dark Objects. It's intelligent, insanely paced and brimming with fresh ideas - I doubt I'll read a better book this year.'
M.W. CRAVEN, author of The Curator
