Hare's Landing, West Cork. A house full of mystery...

Rachel Lambert leaves London afraid for her personal safety and determined to uncover the truth behind the sudden death of a homeless man with links to a country house hotel called Hare's Landing.

New York-based crime reporter Caroline Kelly's career is threatened by a lawsuit and she needs some thinking space away from her job. But almost as soon as she arrives, Hare's Landing begins to reveal its own stories - a 30-year-old missing person's case and the mysterious death of the hotel's former owner.

As Rachel and Caroline join forces, it becomes clear that their investigations are intertwined - and that there is nothing more dangerous than the truth...

MEDIA REVIEWS
An excellent, engrossing tale with a satisfyingly serpentine plot with a killer twist * Irish Independent *
Laced with creepy menace and dark characters that live in the mind, gets under the skin very quickly. * Daily Mail *
An infectious blend of Agatha Christie-esque murder mystery and Gothic whodunnit * Sunday Business Post *
Scintillating and engrossing * Irish Examiner *
This book delivers a wellpaced and layered plot that cleverly combines a number of cold cases with present-day drama, and the result is an intriguing read that delivers plenty of twists and turns and an absorbing conclusion. Blake also has a wonderful gift for description, ensuring the reader can picture every scene in exquisite detail. * Sunday Independent *
Twisty, unpredictable and compelling * Liz Nugent *
There's shades of Rebecca in this small-town mystery, full of atmosphere and menace and with a satisfyingly complex plot. The Dark Room is another winning page-turner from Blake and the perfect read for curling up in front of the fire on a winter's night. Although with its shocking reveals and ghostly undertones, good luck getting to sleep afterwards... * Catherine Ryan Howard *
An addictive mystery, with a creepy twist * Angela Clarke *
Laced with creepy menace and dark characters that live in the mind, it gets under the skin very quickly. * Scottish Daily Mail *
Intelligent and compelling female leads, a spooky and atmospheric setting, and a gripping and satisfying plot -- Roz Watkins
Scintillating and engrossing * Irish Examiner *
