We all recognise them. Those who sit just on the fringes of society. Who send prickles up the back of our necks. The charmers. The liars. The manipulators. Those who have the potential to go that one step too far. And then take another step.

Jessamine Gooch makes a living from these people. Each week she broadcasts a radio show looking into the past lives of convicted killers; asking if there was more that could have been done to prevent their terrible crimes.

Then one day she is approached by a woman desperate to find her missing friend, Cassie, fearing her abusive husband may have taken that final deadly step. But as Jessamine delves into the months prior to Cassie's disappearance she fails to realise there is a dark figure closer to home, one that threatens the safety of her own family . . . 

Set over a long, dark winter in London and perfect for fans of HE SAID/SHE SAID and Belinda Bauer, THE DANGEROUS KIND is at once a gripping thriller and a stunning portrayal of the monsters that live among us.


'Searingly relevant, at times uncomfortably truthful, a page turner and an empathetic look at fractured modern lives' Gillian McAllister

'Dark, uncompromising but full of heart. It gave me goosebumps and I raced through it in a matter of days. Highly recommended' Holly Seddon

'Brilliantly compelling read - original, timely and very very hard to put down!' TM Logan

'Dark and unpredictable, a page-turner with characters I really engaged with and dealing with unsettling topics with compassion and intelligence' Jenny Quintana

'A powerful, timely and unnerving thriller about the predators in our midst' David Jackson

'Great concept, silky prose & originality oozing off every page' Eva Dolan  

'Absolutely brilliant . . . a really sophisticated, smart, engaging thriller' Jo Spain 

'Dark, disturbing, devilishly plotted. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough' Chris Whitaker 

'A terrifyingly plausible novel about predators hiding in plain sight, the banality of evil and the lies we tell to comfort ourselves. Urgent, relevant and completely unputdownable. Definitely one of the thrillers of the year' Martyn Waites
