“Before I Let You In is a taut, scary thriller, but it’s so much more than that, too”

Gillian McAllister, Sunday Times Bestseller


She’s your patient. She’s the crazy one.

So why does she know more about you than you know about her?

“Compelling, disturbing and thoroughly enjoyable” – Sharon Bolton

Karen is meant to be the one who fixes problems.

It’s her job, as a psychiatrist – and it’s always been her role as a friend.

But Jessica is different. She should be the patient, the one that Karen helps.

But she knows things about Karen. Her friends, her personal life. Things no patient should know.

And Karen is starting to wonder if she should have let her in . . .

Adam Hamdy

“Before I Let You In is a taut, scary thriller, but it’s so much more than that, too: it’s also about the choices women make and the judgment they receive – about the way they mother, their sex lives and their psychology. I loved the fantastically unreliable narrator and the well-drawn cast of women. Brilliantly done!”

Gillian McAllister

“What a twisted and devious mind Jenny Blackhurst must have! I just loved it!”

“Amazing! I cannot rave over this book enough. It was heart-stopping, confusing, claustrophobic, amazing, terrifying! The author does a fantastic job of leading the reader on a roller coaster of emotions only to flip it all on its head”
