A Noise Downstairs

A Noise Downstairs

Paul Davis forgets things. Why he walked into a room. Who he spoke to, and what they said. What he promised his wife he’d do. Sometimes it’s too much, and the panic takes hold.

But he wasn’t always like this.

Eight months ago, Paul was attacked – left for dead after seeing something he shouldn’t have – and has been piecing his life back together ever since.

During the days, therapy helps. But at night, he hears noises that no one else can. That nobody believes. Sometimes he thinks someone is in the house. Other times, the sounds are far stranger.

Either he’s losing his mind – or someone wants him to think he is. Or maybe something even darker is waiting downstairs…

A suspense master
Stephen King
Linwood Barclay's novels - as intelligent as Michael Connelly's, as compelling as Harlan Coben's - never fail to astonish. A Noise Downstairs, his best work yet, is a cobra of a story: smooth, slippery, unnerving . . . and likely to strike when you least expect it. I devoured this book
A.J. Finn
Vintage Barclay - an utterly compelling read with a twist you won't see coming. I loved it!
Shari Lapena
cunning.. twist-packed
a creepy and compelling standalone.. Barclay expertly weaves together the various plot strands to reach a wholly unexpected conclusion.
Laura Wilson, THE GUARDIAN
One of the world's finest thriller writers on the top of his game. A Noise Downstairs is a blinder - his best yet
Peter James
The king of the thriller returns with this spooky tale of a man recovering from serious trauma who starts to hear noises in the night.
With a tight plot, delivered in short, punchy chapters, it's hard to resist racing through - to the final twist.
No one can thrill you and chill you better than Barclay
