DARK MINDS ARE AT WORK. SOMETIMES IT TAKES A DARKER ONE TO STOP THEM…
This digital boxset brings together three standalone suspense novels of murder, mystery, secrets and dark lies from the Darker Minds Crime and Suspense series. If you love psychological suspense and tension-filled suspense thrillers all tinged with the gothic then this is for you.
Show Me Dead
THE DEEPER YOU GO, THE DARKER YOU GET. THE STAGE IS SET…
Ripped away from her circus family and kidnapped, Angel finds herself the unwilling ‘guest’ in a dilapidated theatre, belonging to a man who calls himself the Puppet Master.
She’s not the only captive, either. All of the broken and terrified people below ground are forced to perform for a very darkly discerning audience.
When performers begin to go missing, no one knows why, or who will be next. Fear is growing and Angel intends to ensure one thing – that it won’t be her. What is happening here? Just who is the Puppet Master, and what does he want with her? Angel may well wish that she’d never found out. But is he really the one pulling the strings?
To save them all and get to the truth, Angel has to perform the darkest show of all. But truth comes at a price. And someone will pay…
That Killer Image
THREE PEOPLE. ONE KILLER. AND A PICTURE SOMEONE WILL DIE FOR…
When Vicky meets Anthony, she sees him as a happy distraction from her claustrophobic relationship with her housemate and self-appointed guardian, Fran.
Anthony already knows Vicky because he has been following her every move. She is perfect for what he needs – a model for the ultimate photo of his life’s work – and he will do anything it takes to get that shot.
But Fran is not so easy to get rid of. Haunted by the disappearance of her sister, and blaming herself, she is desperate not to make the same mistakes again with Vicky. And when push really comes to shove, she has other ideas about that killer image.
Beneath obsession lurks something more deadly…
No Deadlier Time
A FAMILY WITH DARK SECRETS. WILL SOMEONE KILL TO KEEP THEM?
Neve Eldritch is pregnant, happy, and has one wish – to get her husband, Harry, to reconnect with his family. Neve has never met them – and with good reason. Now there’s a chance to move into the family home and heal a long-standing rift. Going home can’t be that bad. Can it? But something feels wrong from the moment they arrive.
When you’ve avoided the problem for so long, it’s bound to rear its ugly head. All Harry ever wanted was to be worthy in his dad’s eyes. There’s a secret to success, one his dad has taunted him with as a boy, but now he’s gone to drastic lengths to stop Harry getting hold of it. Desperate to prove himself, Harry takes matters into his own hands – with deadly results.
But Harry isn’t prepared for what the horrifying key to his family’s success really is, and it’s spiralling out of control. When murder follows murder, he’s sure he’s committed them. How can he stop himself and keep his family safe when the secret he now holds won’t let him – and he can’t remember any of it?
Suspicions run rife in Neve. Her husband is lying to her. Is he crazy? Or is he a killer? Or maybe – just maybe – someone, somewhere, wants rid of him, and they’ll do anything to get what they want. And she’s sure they’re here, at the isolated family home. Do they want to kill her, too?
Terrible choices lay ahead if anyone is to get out alive. One person can save them all. But time is ticking away… and it’s proving to be deadly.
Be careful what you wish for… you just might get it.
Each book in this digital boxset is a standalone novel. Perfect for readers who love dark themes and crimes mixed with twists, turns and lots of suspense.
