A Knock at the Door

It’s a simple but killer premise: your husband heads off on a business trip; a couple of hours later, two official types appearing at your door asking to speak to him. The phone rings; a voice on the end tells you not to trust the people at your door. Who do you believe?

Most of all, do you trust your husband?

Readers and critics have long adored Tom Wood’s action thrillers, which have sold in their hundreds of thousands, but this psychological thriller written as T.W. Ellis is even more tense. It’s a terrifying cat-and-mouse chase with a gripping mystery at its heart in which anxious, paranoid Jem tries to find out the truth about her husband all the while being pursued.

Readers of all kinds of thrillers will love its pace and twists – with the final dénouement a genuine heart-in-mouth moment. The perfect escapist binge read for lockdown, A Knock at the Door is a delicious confection designed to be wolfed down in a single serving.
