Another stunner from Mark Edwards. There’s something rather creepy and unsettling about his books, that make them truly fabulous psychological thrillers. From the outset, you get that funny feeling in your tummy that something horrible is going to happen… and it does, but not always as you’re anticipating!
Twists and turns, red herrings aplenty, The Devil’s Work is the tale of Sophie, who’s just returned to work after having her daughter, Daisy, who’s now 4. But Sophie has sadness in her life, including unresolved issues from when she was at University.
Superbly written, with an easy style, this is a novel you will want to read at pace. It has some dark moments that take you by the scruff of the neck, hardly daring to read on.. but at the same time, desperate to do so as it’s just so enthralling.
About this book
A gripping psychological thriller from the bestselling author of Follow You Home and The Magpies.
It was the job she had dreamed of since childhood. But on her very first day, when an unnerving encounter drags up memories Sophie Greenwood would rather forget, she wonders if she has made a mistake. A fatal mistake.

As her life begins to fall apart at work and at home, Sophie must race to uncover the truth about her new job…before it kills her.
