When young, pretty Catherine Bailey meets Lee Bright-man, she can't believe her luck. Gorgeous, charismatic, and a bit mysterious, Lee seems almost too perfect to be true.
But what begins as flattering attention and spontaneous, passionate sex transforms into raging jealousy, and Catherine soon discovers that Lee's dashing good looks hide a dark, violent nature.
Four years later, Lee is behind bars and Catherine—now Cathy—is trying to build a new life for herself. Trusting no one, she compulsively checks every lock of her apartment and varies her route home each day. Then an attractive new neighbor moves in. Encouraging her to confront her fears, he sparks unexpected hope and the possibility of a normal life.
Until the day the phone rings.
Mesmerizing, skillfully drawn, vividly cinematic, Into the Darkest Corner is an ingeniously structured tour de force of suspense that marks the arrival of a major new talent.
