A brilliant, high concept, intensely gripping thriller perfect for fans of THE SILENT PATIENT, THE CAPTIVE will keep you guessing till the very end . . .
‘Ingenious. A smart, pacy and highly entertaining thriller’ T.M. Logan
Hannah knows the cage intimately.
Small, the size of a shopping centre parking space. A bed, a basin, a table and chair. A hatch and metal drawer through which to exchange food and other items.
Then there’s him. Always there on the edges of her vision, no matter how hard she tries to block him out. Every day, the same thoughts run through Hannah’s mind:What if he speaks to me?
What if he hurts me?
What if he gets out?
Everyone is talking about Deborah O’ Connor and THE CAPTIVE…
