Three women have been found dead in East Anglia. The police deny a connection. TV news reporter Frankie smells a story . . .
Ava knows that the threat is real. She's been kidnapped by someone claiming to be the killer: a stranger who seems to know everything about her.
As Frankie follows the case, she enters a terrifying online world where men's rage against women may be turning murderous - and where her persistence might just make her a target. And Ava must struggle not only to stay alive . . . but to stay sane.
From journalist and the author of The Wolf Den, The Death Knock is a compelling story of the worst that man can do and the hunt for the truth - at all costs.

I tore through this book, my heart hammering with Ava's and my head pounding with Frankie's. Fast-paced, unpredictable, and disturbingly real, THE DEATH KNOCK reminds us at every turn what is so frightening about that which is so immediate. Do not flip the page without keeping one eye on the last! -- Rebecca F. John
Chilling, intelligent, and highly addictive. Superb. -- Will Dean, author of Dark Pines
Elodie Harper employs her journalistic background to great effect by breathing life into her gritty news reporter protagonist as she pursues a terrifying serial killer in East Anglia. Frankie's investigations lead her into increasing levels of danger including the menacing attentions of a rabidly misogynistic blogger, a warped advocate of the so-called men's rights movement. A highly-charged and topical thriller. -- Vaseem Khan
Riveting and scarily believable, THE DEATH KNOCK left me gasping for air. -- Laura Purcell, author of The Silent Companions
Haunting and wonderfully written. * Woman *
Gripping and suspenseful. -- Neil Spring, author of The Ghost Hunters
Gripping, chilling and physically impossible to put down. She scares me. But I loved every second of it. -- Ross Armstrong, author of The Watcher
From the first page, you have a sense of the harsh realities a journalist must face, but more than that Elodie Harper takes you into the mind of not only the victim, but the killer too, with convincing chilling clarity. -- Amanda Reynolds, author of Close To Me
This book is so scarily realistic with a chilling plot and vivid, likeable protagonists. Very clever! This should be on TV. Warning though - it will keep you awake at night! I couldn't put it down. -- Claire Douglas, author of Last Seen Alive
The danger feels real in this young-women-in-peril gripper. -- Karen Robinson, Sunday Times Crime Club
Well plotted and well written. * Literary Review *
