Then she discovers that the building was once a Victorian sweatshop with a tragic history. Is this why Rachel feels something increasingly sinister?

Soon her new job becomes a living nightmare. Rachel desperately wants out, but she has no other way of escaping her debts. She’s trapped. Then she makes a shocking discovery.

Haunted by the death of others and as the present and past begin to close in, Rachel needs to find answers before she finds herself in grave danger…

What is really going on in her workplace?

And can she ever escape her inner demons?

Another Brillant book by Dreda Say Mitchell, I had the pleasure to read Spare Room, and I was so excited to get an ARC copy of this book.

Rachel, the main character is unemployed, in debt, soon to be homeless living in a shared house. But she is lucky enough to be given a month’s trail for a new job, being a management consultant for a new business for a man called Micheal. But her new job uncovers massive lies, secrets and trauma. It turns into her worse nightmares.

So many plots, subplots and it is a wonderful well-crafted story with plenty of shocking skilful twists and turns. It was absolutely gripping and a remarkably creepy and suspenseful novel.

I loved Rachel’s character; she was engaging and absorbing. She made for an exquisite character. The author really put this character through an epic amount. Her life is crashing around her after she is uncovering the truth, about her childhood, family and her life. And the trauma of her childhood friend Phillip dies.

I was addicted to Keats’ character; she was wonderful, weird, wacky and very, very fascinating. I loved reading about her and discovering more and more about her character. She was definitely one of my favourite characters.

I love how Dreda Say Mitchell tells a story and weaves in so different paths into her stories they are completely, wholly addictive and suspenseful. This book was cleverly told in the first person, but it is so so well done.

I highly recommend this book, if you love psychological suspenseful addictive books then you kinda like NEED to grab this book and settle down on the sofa.
