The Red Room

With a new introduction by Peter James



Enter the Red Room - where nightmares become reality

He almost took your life. Now his is in your hands . . .

After psychologist Kit Quinn is brutally attacked by a prisoner, she is determined to get straight back to work. When the police want her help in linking the man who attacked her to a series of murders, she refuses to simply accept the obvious.

But the closer her investigation takes her to the truth behind the savage crimes, the nearer Kit gets to the dark heart of her own terror.
