Into the Darkest Corner is an edgy and powerful thriller that asks the most terrifying questions: What if the person you love isn’t who you thought they were? What if they are so convincing even your closest friends can’t see the truth? What if they won’t let you go?
Catherine has been enjoying the single life for long enough to know a good catch when she sees one. Lee is gorgeous, charismatic and spontaneous—almost too perfect to be true. And her friends clearly agree, as each in turn falls under his spell.
But there is a darker side to Lee. As his behavior becomes increasingly erratic and controlling Catherine is more and more isolated. Driven into the darkest corner of her world, cut off from her friends and unable to trust anyone, she plans her escape. And she succeeds. Four years later, Catherine dares to believe she might be safe. But is she?
