Waterstones Says

Moving from her forensic detective novels towards a more overt form of gothic horror, Gerritsen pulls out all the stops in a chilling tale of buried secrets and ghosts from the past. Set in a brooding mansion throbbing with sinister intentions, The Shape of Night is an electrifying literary thrill-ride.

'This will haunt you. Riveting!' - Shari Lapena

We've all done things we're ashamed of ...

When Ava arrives at Brodie's Watch, she thinks she has found the perfect place to hide from her past. Something terrible happened, something she is deeply ashamed of, and all she wants is to forget. But the old house on the hill both welcomes and repels her and Ava quickly begins to suspect she is not alone. Either that or she is losing her mind.

The house is full of secrets, but is the creeping sense of danger coming from within its walls, or from somewhere else entirely?

MEDIA REVIEWS

'A captivating and seductive tale exploring the dark embrace of grief and guilt, reminding us that nothing can haunt us as insidiously as our personal demons. This is the incomparable Gerritsen at her finest!' - Sylvia Day

'Beguiling! Gerritsen is at her atmospheric best in this spine-tingling tale of a lone woman, an old house, and all the secrets everyone tries to hide.' - Lisa Gardner

'A close-knit community, a gothic house, and a shadowy stranger inside ... I love Tess's writing and The Shape Of Night is as compulsive as it gets.' - Lesley Kara, author of The Rumour

'Curl up in your favorite reading chair and let Tess Gerritsen whisk you away to a coastal town reminiscent of Daphne Du Maurier's best settings. As the chills run down your spine, and the creeping sense of danger curls your toes, don't say I didn't warn you: you are in for a dark and sexy night, and you will be up very late with Tess' twisted, haunting tale.' - Iris Johansen

'Reminiscent of the best of du Maurier, this modern gothic is eerie, tantalizing, spine-tingling, and sensual ... an altogether delicious read.' - Sandra Brown

'With a twisty mix of dangerous passion, obsession and suspense, Tess Gerritsen reinvents the Gothic novel, giving it a razor sharp, modern edge.' - Jayne Ann Krentz

'The Shape of Night is one helluva thrill ride with twists and turns I didn't see coming. I honestly could not put the book down ... This is one of Gerritsen's best mysteries ever.' - Lisa Jackson
