From the bestselling author of Cry Baby comes a brand new thriller that will keep you up at night: a serial killer on the run hides out in the shared attic space of a terrace of houses, unbeknownst to the unfortunate occupants below...

There's a serial killer on the run...and he's hiding in your house.

Thomas Brogan is a serial killer. Having left a trail of bodies in his wake, and with the police hot on his heels, it seems like Thomas has nowhere left to hide. That is until he breaks into an abandoned house at the end of a terrace on a quiet street. And when he climbs up into the loft, he realises that the can drop down into all the other houses on the street through the shared attic space.

That's when the real fun begins. Because the one thing that Thomas enjoys even more than killing, is playing games with his victims. And his new neighbours have more than enough dark secrets to make this game his best one yet...

Do you fear The Resident? Soon you'll be dying to meet him.
