‘Totally gripped’ Goodreads reviewer ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ ‘Heart-pounding. Brilliant’ NetGalley reviewer ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ ‘A spectacular serial killer thriller’ NetGalley reviewer ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ ‘Had my heart thumping’ Book Reviews by Shalini ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ The photo fell from her grasp at the sudden thought of her sister. She stared at it, lying on the floor, remembering little Hattie with her big dark eyes in her stripy pink-and-white shorts, the ones she was wearing on the day she disappeared… Detective Carrie Flynn has spent twenty years searching for her little sister, who was kidnapped and never found. Carrie was with Hattie on that hot summer day – she saw her sister’s abductor, but she was just a young girl herself, and remembers nothing. She’s never forgiven herself for letting Hattie down. When the chance came to join the police force, Carrie didn’t hesitate, wanting to ensure that no more little girls grew up alone. Now she is facing her toughest case yet: Jordan Robinson, a quiet and bright young man, has disappeared by the canal on a cold winter’s night. Witnesses heard a splash, but Carrie hasn’t found his body. She knows the first days are vital to find a missing person, and time is running out. Jordan’s family are distraught, and Carrie is determined to bring their son home. But why does the mother not want to answer questions? Who is the mysterious girl next door? What secrets are this family hiding? As Carrie searches desperately for Jordan, and digs into his past, she starts to realise his case may not be unique. Young and vulnerable men have been disappearing down by the water, their deaths labelled as suicide or accidents. When Carrie pulls out all of the old files, she is sure: Jordan Robinson has been taken by a serial killer. In a desperate race against time, Carrie vows to bring Jordan home safely, and catch this killer before he can strike again. She’ll never stop searching, for the grieving families, for her belief in justice, and her hope that, one day, something she finds will lead her back to her lost little sister.

Kyle is a mercenary of the most extraordinary kind—he tracks his quarry with a sense beyond mere human ability. Even though this "gift" sets him apart from those he protects, he never questions it; to do so would bring him too close to the nameless evil he once encountered as a child. Then Kyle’s hunt leads him into a perilous dark realm, and he is forced to make an alliance with a powerful demon and her mysterious master, The Night Caller. However, there is more at stake than Kyle’s survival. A cunning adversary is set to unleash the monstrous forces that lurk at the edge of the human world. And the key to humanity’s survival may very well lie in the haunting past Kyle has fought to keep secret, even from himself...

There has been a tremendous amount of renewed interest in the output of Britain's Hammer Films. But there remain a great number of worthwhile British horror films, made at the same time by other companies, that have received little attention. The author provides a comprehensive listing of British horror films--including science fiction, fantasy, and suspense films containing horror-genre elements--that were released between 1956 and 1976, the "Golden Age" of British horror. Entries are listed alphabetically by original British title, from Vincent Price in The Abominable Dr. Phibes (1971) to Zeta One (1969). Entries also include American title, release information, a critique of the film, and the film's video availability. The book is filled with photographs and contains interviews with four key figures: Max J. Rosenberg, cofounder of Amicus Productions, one of the period's major studios; Louis M. Heyward, former writer, film executive and producer; Aida Young, film and television producer; and Gordon Hessler, director of such films as The Oblong Box and Murders in the Rue Morgue.

British Science Fiction Cinema is the first substantial study of a genre which, despite a sometimes troubled history, has produced some of the best British films, from the prewar classic Things to Come to Alien made in Britain by a British director. The contributors to this rich and provocative collection explore the diverse strangeness of British science fiction, from literary adaptions like Nineteen Eighty-Four and A Clockwork Orange to pulp fantasies and 'creature features' far removed from the acceptable face of British cinema. Through case studies of key films like The Day the Earth Caught Fire, contributors explore the unique themes and concerns of British science fiction, from the postwar boom years to more recent productions like Hardware, and examine how science fiction cinema drew on a variety of sources, from TV adaptions like Doctor Who and the Daleks, to the horror/sf crossovers produced from John Wyndham's cult novels The Day of the Triffids and The Midwich Cuckoos (filmed as Village of the Damned). How did budget restrictions encourage the use of the 'invasion narrative' in the 1950s films? And how did films such as Unearthly Stranger and Invasion reflect fears about the decline of Britain's economic and colonial power and the 'threat' of female sexuality? British Science Fiction Cinema celebrates the breadth and continuing vitality of British sf film-making, in both big-budget productions such as Brazil and Event Horizon and cult exploitation movies like Inseminoid and Lifeforce.
