Publisher's summary

They say every cloud has a silver lining....

When Freya Miller is struck by tragedy, losing her husband and her home within a short time, she is burdened with many worries. The main one being where she and her five-year old daughter, Skye, are going to live. A chance meeting with the charismatic Dr Marsden changes all that. He offers the young mother the most amazing opportunity: an apartment at one of London’s most exclusive addresses for a fraction of the market rental cost. It’s an offer Freya simply can’t refuse. Within a couple of weeks, Freya and Skye are moving into Adder House and meeting the other welcoming residents. They very quickly feel part of the family.

But just when Freya truly believes all her problems are history, a series of strange, unexplained occurrences begin. It leaves Freya with the unshakeable feeling that even when their apartment door is securely locked, she and her daughter are not alone. Freya thought she’d left all her troubles behind her, yet she soon realises there are problems here that are far more terrifying than before.

For behind the doors of Adder House, everything is most definitely not as it seems.

Old secrets refuse to stay buried, and someone is determined to keep a terrible past very much alive.

K.L. Slater

About the Creator

"I’ve learned that my readers don’t trust me one iota…readers are often suspicious from the very first page!" K. L. Slater is the author of psychological thrillers she describes as "tense with a sinister sense of building dread"—domestic noir stories that the reader or listener believes might happen to them, with a twist they don’t see coming. While still holding down a full-time job, Slater embarked upon an English and creative writing honors degree at Nottingham Trent University (UK), receiving first class honors. Part of her dissertation became a story called The Bridge. After finishing her MA, Slater successfully launched herself as an author of multi-award-winning Young Adult novels, writing as Kim Slater. But she found that the character of Anna (the protagonist from The Bridge) kept calling her back to finish her story. And so Slater gave both the character and the story new life in her first crime novel Safe with Me, her first novel as K. L. Slater. While she can often be found reading multiple books at once, she says she only ever writes one at a time as she becomes so immersed in each world, "occasionally it dawns on me that I do spend so many hours of my day in worlds that don’t exist."
