There are hangovers, there are bad hangovers, and then there's waking up inside someone else's head. Thirty-something bartender Charlie Wilkes is faced with this dilemma when he wakes up to find himself trapped inside The Black Room - a space consisting of impenetrable darkness and a huge, ethereal screen floating in its center. It is through this screen that he sees the world of his female host, Minnie.

I travel for work and have lots of time for audible. at least one or two per week. lately it has seemed like the stories were the same until I stumbled upon Luke Smitherd. I've read Head Full of Knives and loved it (again, totally different story) so I moved on the next one suggested by Luke in his after story blurbs. keep on whoring for ratings.... it's working! lol you are doing your thing and it's definitely helping me get through the hum drum drive!

From the author of Audible #1 bestsellers In The Darkness, That's Where I'll Know You, The Physics of the Dead, and The Stone Man (shortlisted for the Audible Audiobook of the Year award 2015). Ever wished the world would revolve around you? Be careful what you wish for... Martin Hogan feels like he's being watched by everyone and everything, and doesn't know why. Even his pets are acting strangely. Each night he sees animals gathering outside his house in the darkness, staring up at his windows with glittering eyes.

Any additional comments?

If you're tired of same old same old, try this book. Different story and possible open for a part 2. First Luke Smitherd book and really enjoyed it. Was looking for something different and found it.

the narrator drove me nuts. there were times I wanted to stop listening but glad I did. surprise ending. I hadn't remembered the narrator's name but when I started listening I remembered because I had heard her on another audio narration and said then I couldn't take her. the main detective sounds constipated and some of the voices/accents start sounding the same. definitely too over the top.

When Laurie was a little girl, she was forbidden to enter the room at the top of the stairs. It was one of many rules imposed by her cold, distant father. Now, in a final act of desperation, her father has exorcised his demons. But when Laurie returns to claim the estate with her husband and 10-year-old daughter, it's as if the past refuses to die. She feels it lurking in the broken moldings, sees it staring from an empty picture frame, hears it laughing in the moldy greenhouse deep in the woods.
