The Dark Room

Awards
Shortlisted CWA Gold Dagger Award 1995, UK

"Something else had happened...Something so terrible that she was too frightened to search her memory for it..."

The newspapers reported the case with relish. Jane (Jinx) Kingsley, fashion photographer and heiress, tries to kill herself after being unceremoniously jilted by her fiance, Leo Wallader. Leo has since disappeared - together with Jinx's best friend Meg Harris. But when she wakes from her coma, Jinx can remember nothing about her alleged suicide attempt. Then the memories begin to surface - memories of utter desperation and absolute terror...

Jinx is told that shortly before her suicide bid Leo called off their wedding in order to marry Meg. Nevertheless Jinx is also convinced that she would never try to kill herself over Leo...Surely it was she who wanted to break the engagement. With the help of Dr Alan Protheroe of the Nightingale Clinic, Jinx slowly begins to unlock her nightmares and piece together the fragments of the last few weeks. The truth about what happened to her lies deep within her mind. But what other terrifying memories is she about to disturb?

"Had she felt as lonely as this a week ago? Could she have done it? God help her if she had..."
