The Suicide House




From the bestselling author of The Girl Who Was Taken and Don't Believe It comes a riveting twister of a thriller featuring enigmatic cold case expert Rory Moore and famed profiler Lane Phillips.

‘On the other side of that wall are the woods, and in those woods is a forgotten path that leads to the infamous boarding house.’

Beyond the manicured campus of Indiana’s elite Westmont Preparatory School sits an abandoned boarding house, popular among students as a late-night hangout - and recently the scene of a dangerous game gone wrong.

One year ago, two students were killed there in a grisly slaughter. Though a teacher was convicted of the murders, mysteries and questions remain. The most urgent among them is why three survivors of that terrible night have returned to the house to kill themselves.

Well-known criminal profiler Dr Lane Phillips, hired as an adviser on a popular podcast about the tragedy, knows this is the perfect puzzle for his partner Rory Moore, a forensic reconstructionist with an uncanny ability to spot the details others miss.

But the more Lane and Rory learn about the school and its students, the more convinced they are that the game hasn’t ended. And for its players, there may be no way to win – or to survive . . .
