The killing starts when the lights go out . . . When Darkness Calls is the first in a new London-based thriller series starring criminal psychologist Holly Wakefield and heralds the breakout of a major new talent in crime fiction.

"think Cracker but with a sympathetic, if troubled, female protagonist."

Deviously plotted, with a bleak thread of intriguing twists, it reveals that Holly has much more experience in matters of murder than may meet the eye. Her partnership with Bishop is deftly portrayed, and she’s a character we are destined to hear far more of.

Not surprisingly from a screenwriter, it has all the makings of a TV series — think Cracker but with a sympathetic, if troubled, female protagonist.
