“A captivating and seductive tale exploring the dark embrace of grief and guilt… This is the incomparable Gerritsen at her finest.”- Sylvia Day

When Ava arrives at Brodie’s Watch, she thinks she has found the perfect place to hide from her past. Something terrible happened, something she is deeply ashamed of, and all she wants is to forget.

But the old house on the hill both welcomes and repels her and Ava quickly begins to suspect she is not alone.

Either that or she is losing her mind.

The house is full of secrets, but is the creeping sense of danger coming from within its walls, or from somewhere else entirely?


I’ve been a fan of Tess Gerritsen’s books for some years and love the Rizzoli and Isles series. The Shape Of Night is something completely different.

Ava is running away from guilt. She decides to rent a large home in Tucker Cove, a small town on the cost of Maine,  at first she’s intimidated by the size of the house, but once inside she feels the house wants her to stay.

What is Ava running from? And who is the dark figure she sees from a distance.?

This is part gothic tale of ghosts, an incubus …is this malevolent and responsible for past deaths in the house? Or is something else responsible ?

A creepy, slightly disturbing gothic thriller that is so compelling and will be an absolutely perfect read for Halloween (if you think of The Ghost and Mrs Muir….for adults!)……..!

Bestselling author Tess Gerritsen is also a physician, and she brings to her novels her first-hand knowledge of emergency and autopsy rooms. Her thrillers starring homicide detective Jane Rizzoli and medical examiner Maura Isles inspired the hit TV series Rizzoli & Isles. But Tess’s interests span far more than medicine and crime. As an anthropology student at Stanford University, she catalogued centuries-old human remains, and she continues to travel the world, driven by her fascination with ancient cultures and bizarre natural phenomena. Tess has sold over 40 million copies of her books worldwide.
