Laced with creepy menace and dark characters that live in the mind, it gets under the skin very quickly.

An excellent, engrossing tale with a satisfyingly serpentine plot with a killer twist.

This book delivers a well-paced 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. Her atmospheric depiction of West Cork triumphs in this novel, along with the wonderful portrayal of Rachel’s dog – a German Shepherd called Jasper who is pivotal to helping them with their investigations.

Twisty, unpredictable and compelling

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…
