Rattle by Fiona Cummins

Rattle book cover

We gave away 50 copies of Rattle, a thriller about a serial killer with a rather disturbing obsession, and one of the titles in our Crime and Thriller Book Club.

About the book

This serial killer lives two lives. In one, he's just like anyone else, but in the other, he's the caretaker of his family's macabre museum. Now the time has come to add to his collection, so he's on the hunt. Only those with nerves of steel and a night light should take on this terrifying cat-and-mouse game between a sinister collector and a troubled detective.

Set in London's Blackheath, Rattle explores the seam of darkness that runs through us all; the struggle between light and shadow, redemption and revenge.

It is a glimpse into the mind of a sinister psychopath. And it's also a story about not giving up hope when it seems that all hope is already lost.
