9780956251572: Into the Darkest Corner
Revue de presse :

From its uncompromising prologue - a young woman being bludgeoned to death in a ditch - Haynes's powerful account of domestic violence is disquieting, yet unsensationalist. This is a gripping book on a topic which can never be highlighted enough. --Guardian

A very impressive first novel. The pain and frustration of OCD is brilliantly evoked and I winced every time Cathy embarked on yet another ritual. The contrast between Cathy's two lives is cleverly drawn and the hesitancy in her new relationship is very believable. This is a fantastic personal read with plenty for a reading group to discuss. --NewBooks Magazine

Within ten minutes I couldn't put it down. I've always said that I would never be caught in an abusive relationship, as I'd be out of it at the first sign of a problem but after reading this book I realised that it really isn't that simple. There's a superb picture of the burdens of OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder). It's not enough to check once that the door is firmly locked. What if you didn't lock it properly? There's real dramatic tension in this book and when I got to the end the first thing that I did was to turn back to the beginning again. --The Bookbag

A tense and thought-provoking début novel with dark moments. Its portrayal of obsession is one that will send a shiver down your spine and you'll hope that you are never in that position. But don't look for a "pat" ending - it seems that things never end the way one hopes! This début novel by a police intelligence analyst is certainly well worth the read. --Shotsmag

Our South coast-based book group had been starved of a good book for a month or two, so it was with some excitement that we stumbled across the buzz on Twitter about Elizabeth Haynes' compelling debut novel Into the Darkest Corner. Thankfully starvation swiftly changed to gluttony when we got our hands on the book, as this is a compulsive thriller with sufficient twists and plot turns to keep the most action-avaricious of readers satisfied.

Haynes treats the subject matter of domestic violence delicately and with gentle self-assurance. And it's this theme that makes the book so suited to book group discussion, with our group having a lively debate over how we would react in the same situation. `I never thought that simple words on a printed page could create such fear that I'd be checking under the bed every night.' `Couldn't put it down.' `It's curious how a book that deals with obsession, can itself leave the reader obsessed.' But don't just take our word for it, Haynes has been selected as one of Amazon's Rising Stars for 2011, so hers is clearly a name to watch. --Bookgroup.info

Some books are unputdownable. Not many. A few. This one is one of them. It is an absolutely gripping story and from the very first page I was hooked and kept on reading to find out more. It is a story about domestic abuse and the awful consequences that it can have, how life is never the same again. Genre-wise it is somewhere between a mental disorder novel and a psychological thriller but mostly it is the last one.
--WickedWonderfulWords

'Check the locks on your doors and windows and surrender to this obsessive thriller.' --Karin Slaughter

'This intense, gripping account of domestic violence and its aftermath is utterly unputdownable. A stunning debut.'
--S J Watson

'The story explores how those experiencing domestic violence often feel they're at fault.' --Emerald Street
