Into the Darkest Corner

Into the Darkest Corner - Elizabeth Haynes Into The Darkest Corner by Elizabeth Haynes is an intense, compelling and harrowing psychological thriller and I for one really enjoyed this page turning novel.

I probably have passed this book in the bookshop numerous times but failed to even pick it up as its cover is just not appealing and I have to be honest I do judge a book by its cover when browsing books. I was given this as a gift for christmas and was really surprised at how much I enjoyed this novel and Elizabeth Hayne's ability to craft such a gripping tale.

This is a terrifying and very convincing portrayal of an abusive relationship and a woman who having being pushed to the limit is building a new life for herself and coming to terms with her past.
This is not a book for the faint hearted and I have to warn readers there is quite a bit of profanity in this novel and some people may find that offensive so therefore be warned.

I loved the character of Catherine Bailey, she was a very real character with real problems and I am sure so many people will sympathise with her and the delicate situation in which she finds herself.
This novel is very well written in terns of suspense and it really had me gripped from page one. Its prose is simple and the sort of novel you can happily cosy up on the sofa (once you have locked all the doors and windows) and know you are going to be in for a cleverly crafted psychological thriller.
