A beautiful house. A new beginning. The almost perfect neighbours...

When newlyweds Jane and Alex Clarke move into an idyllic house on the quaint Bristol Lane, they are excited for a new beginning in what will be their ‘forever home’.

And when an elderly neighbour welcomes them, she soon becomes a friend. But she grows a little too interested in the couple next door as she sits watching them, day in, day out, from the rocking chair in her window.

Alex says it will be fine. After all, she’s a lonely widow who just wants some company. But when she invites Jane into her home, who knows what she’ll find there...

A dark and gripping domestic thriller, perfect for fans of Shari Lapena and Paula Hawkins.

 What would you do if your family was targeted for destruction by a violent Satanic cult? That’s the position that Jim DiMario finds himself in – but has he found out too late? Jim feels the comfortable predictability of his day-to-day routine begin to unravel when he investigates a series of bizarre animal mutilations that have recently occurred in his normally quiet, upscale community. Seemingly by chance, he meets two strangers in his quest for the truth – a sheriff’s deputy, and a TV news reporter, each of whom have their own reasons to investigate the grisly deeds. Jim soon finds himself hip deep in trouble when adverse events start happening to his friends and family. His world spinning desperately out of control, Jim finally discovers that he, his family, and his church are the focus of a dangerous Satanic cult – the shadowy Temple of Anubis, who’s activities and true intentions are much more sinister than mere animal mutilations. With time ticking away just before Samhain, the most unholy night for the occultists, Jim and his new-found allies face an all-or-nothing gamble to save his daughter’s life from the hands of the Satanists who have abducted her. Will he realize too late that his worst enemy is a member of his own inner circle? What do reviewers say about OUTER DARKNESS? A Gripping Thriller - Five Stars! … “Outer Darkness is a gripping thriller, highly recommended for fans who love to be on the edge of their seat with a 'page turner' of a truly good book.” --Michael J. Carson, Midwest Book Review "Bart Brevik creates compelling characters in this story - some whom we can't help but like, and some whom we like to hate. The complex plot of OUTER DARKNESS is like several strands of silk woven together to make a strong rope; you don't see how it all comes together until the stunning climax. An outstanding read!" --Major George Durgin, Author of "The Delta Dogs" OUTER DARKNESS is an Award-Winning Finalist in the Religious Fiction category of the National Best Books 2008 Awards, sponsored by USA Book News
The instant New York Times Bestseller (January 2018)!

When you read this book, you will make many assumptions.
You will assume you are reading about a jealous ex-wife.
You will assume she is obsessed with her replacement – a beautiful, younger woman who is about to marry the man they both love.
You will assume you know the anatomy of this tangled love triangle.
Assume nothing.

Twisted and deliciously chilling, Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen's The Wife Between Us exposes the secret complexities of an enviable marriage - and the dangerous truths we ignore in the name of love.

Read between the lies.
