Regular readers will know I love a good thriller, I'm not keen on supernatural thrillers, though, but could make an exception for No One Gets Out Alive by Adam Nevill.
Stephanie Booth is running out of money, work and friends as she moves into a room in a shared house at what she thinks is the right price. But even on her first night in this big old house, she fears she may have made a mistake. Sadly she does not follow her instincts and instead stays in the house, hoping to use it short-term whilst she makes other plans. She cannot begin to imagine what will happen next as her life descends further into horror. I kept wishing she would make a different choice, but at each opportunity she does not.
This is a deeply dark novel, where it isn't always clear if the things that can be seen, heard, smelt and felt are the sinister landlords, figments of Stephanie's fragmenting mind, or something far worse.
It is a tense, gripping and chilling read.
No One Gets Out Alive, by Adam Nevill is published by Pan Macmillan and available to order from their website.
