Waterstones Says

The author of the acclaimed When I Was Ten returns with another effortlessly eerie thriller revolving around a wealthy family who inexplicably vanish from their holiday home.

Shortlisted for the Theakston Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year 2023

Into the Dark is the new dark and gripping crime thriller from Fiona Cummins about revenge, greed, ambition and the true cost of friendship.

The place: Seawings, a beautiful Art Deco home overlooking the sweep of the bay in Midtown-on-Sea.

The crime: The gilded Holden family - Piper and Gray and their two teenage children, Riva and Artie - has vanished from the house without a trace.

The detective: DS Saul Anguish, brilliant but with a dark past, treads the narrow line between light and shade.

One late autumn morning, Piper's best friend arrives at Seawings to discover an eerie scene - the kettle is still warm, all the family's phones are charging on the worktop, the cars are in the garage. But the house is deserted.

In fifteen-year-old Riva Holden's bedroom, scrawled across the mirror in blood, are three words:

Make
Them
Stop.

What happens next?
