The Beach House
The Beach House: A twisty, dark thriller set in a holiday paradise by P.R. Black

A gripping summer read from the author of The Long Dark Road, The Beach House is a sinister psychological thriller showing the other side of a holiday paradise.

This vacation is about to turn deadly...

Cora's on the island vacation of her dreams: sharing a private Caribbean beach with her boyfriend. It feels like paradise, and when her boyfriend proposes, things couldn't get any better... until news comes through of an eight-figure cheque following the sale of her new fiancé's business.

But despite their happiness, there is one catch to this trip to paradise. Looking forward to a wonderful life together, the couple are shocked to find their island isn't so private after all.

Cora tries to make the best of a bad situation by inviting some strangely friendly neighbours to celebrate their good fortune with them. But it doesn't take long for a once-in-a-lifetime holiday to take a very sinister turn...
