Bled to death and left in a rubbish bin, the teenaged prostitute is just the first victim.
DI Jeff Rickman's investigation into the Afghan refugee's sordid death leads first to the heart of a community who can't - or won't - talk to him. Then the investigation comes home to Rickman's own private life. As the body count starts rising he is framed for a crime he didn't commit. A murderer is trying to make things personal. Very personal.
Is he on the trail of a serial killer? Or something even more sinister?

'Exemplary chiller . . . If Murphy's appointed task is to scare the reader...she succeeds brilliantly.' Literary Review on DARKNESS FALLS
'A cracking good read with a masterly doubletake.' Scotsman on DARKNESS FALLS
'DARKNESS FALLS is a model of what the modern suspense thriller should be...tense, scary, page-turning and stomach-churning - because we care most of all about what happens to the characters. Set aside a day - you won't be able to put it down once it has you in its grip. Val McDermid
'Surprisingly teasing . . . visual, well-paced thriller.' Daily Mirror on DARKNESS FALLS
'Just what British crime writing is crying out for - a compassionate, grass roots British novel with the pace, energy and impeccable research of an American thriller.' Mo Hayder on DARKNESS FALLS
'Ms Murphy handles her complex plot with a sure hand and brings it to a stunning climax.' Sunday Telegraph on WEAVING SHADOWS
Set in Liverpool, Margaret Murphy's new novel evokes the gritty reality of crime and unfolds a searing story of murder, mistrust, despair and revenge.
