A MASTERPIECE IN SUSPENSE FROM POLISH DISSIDENT JAKUB ZULCZYK
From the bestselling author of the book behind the HBO Europe show Blinded by the Lights comes a brand-new claustrophobic mystery thriller that’s taking Europe by storm.
Agnieszka and her flatmates are trapped in her apartment block in the Central Krakow. All windows and doors are sealed, phone lines are down and the Internet is off. Cut off from the world, they find themselves in a strange game played by the mysterious ‘THEY’. Paranoia thickens and tension builds as the chilling and gruesome endgame moves closer.
‘Big brother meets Stephen King in this chilling novel that firmly delivers with a satisfying level of unease.’ J M Dalgliesh
PRAISE FOR JAKUB:
'Tough, knowing, high-octane crime fiction... Los Angeles has James Ellroy, Boston has Dennis Lehane, Oslo has Jo Nesbo. And Warsaw has its own two-fisted crime laureate in Jakub Żulczyk. Already a massive bestseller in Poland, this is brilliant stuff from a fresh new voice in crime fiction.' Tony Parsons
'Jakub Żulczyk’s Blinded by the Lights is dark, dangerous, and seductive. A multi-layered story that – like his anti-hero’s product – will assault your senses and leave you craving for more. This is post-Communist Warsaw, but it could be Moscow, New York, or London. A truly terrific piece of writing and I can’t recommend it enough.' G.D. Abson
'A striking novel, brilliantly written - for the fans of the dark and gritty!' Robert Bryndza
