Présentation de l'éditeur

When night falls, fear spreads...

The Lake District: a wild landscape, rife with stories. Detectives Zoe Barnes and Sam Taylor are called to investigate the disappearance of two children.

But they quickly realise they have been drawn into a complex and unnerving case that hides a much darker intent: as they dig deeper, whispers grow of a community hiding a deadly secret - and talk of witches, the like of which hasn't been heard since the seventeenth century, is spreading.

Zoe and Sam will have to work fast to save lives; but in this atmosphere of fear and mistrust, can they even rely on each other?

I would give A Cry in The Night 4.5 stars, because, although I absolutely loved so many things about it, I found some of the sex and violence upsetting.
That said, this is a brilliant read with quite a “wow” factor. It’s a suspense novel that is more than the sum of its parts, a character study, a story about friendship, grieving, loneliness, madness, mob mentalities, male-female relations, and abuse of power. It genuinely delves into all these issues in a deep and organic way, as well as being a compelling mystery with a strong sense of place.
A Cry in the Night starts with a prologue that is like a little, perfectly written, piece of art all in itself. This prologue depicts a terrible episode in the past of the Lake District town of Lullingdale, a brief, mad time in which the town women were accused of, and persecuted for, witchcraft. After the lyrical prologue, the novel properly starts in the present day, and follows the investigation into the disappearance of two children by a pair of Manchester police officers.
Sam is a father and recent widower, trying to cope with his grief and keep it together enough to raise his teenaged daughters. Zoe is his young partner, enthusiastic, courageous, and struggling to carve out a meaningful place in a career that is still, almost exclusively, a man’s world.
When Sam and Zoe arrive in Lullingdale, they encounter an insular group of villagers who reference witchcraft in the same breath as the disappearance of their children. As the detectives investigate, it becomes unclear to them, and to the reader, where the line between reality, madness, and the supernatural, lie.
One of the most enjoyable things about this novel for me was that I really had no idea what direction it would end up taking. Without giving away any spoilers, I can say that the story explored the way in which group fear can lead “normal” people to do horrific things. I also really loved how the author used the setting, a small, snowy village next to a deep, unfathomable lake, to create in turn a strong sense of paranoia, claustrophobia, powerlessness, and also beauty.
A Cry in the Night was a complex book, but a fast and addictive read. I have already ordered Sleepwalkers, Grieves’ first novel, and am excited to discover in him a new and unique literary talent

This novel begins with the disappearance of two children by Lullingdale Water, in the Lake District. Notorious for the drowning of six women, accused of witchcraft in the 1660’s, it is near a village which is beautiful on the surface but, like most things, more complicated beneath. When the local police get nowhere, DI Sam Taylor and DC Zoe Barnes are sent from Manchester, to investigate. Sam has recently lost his wife and is struggling with being the sole parent to his two daughters. Zoe loves her job and thinks of Sam as a good friend. However, from the beginning, there are secrets between them. Chief Superintendent Michael Frey has given Sam details of other cases in which seemingly normal women have suddenly killed children and he wants to know whether there are any comparisons with this investigation. He is unable to share this information with Zoe and she is resentful as he hides things from her.

The parents of the missing children are Tim and Sarah Downing. Before long it is obvious that sympathy in the village lies with the father but not the mother. Sarah has married above herself, is known for having a cruel temper and it is also possible that she is somehow involved in the disappearance of her own children. This excellent thriller builds in tension as Sam attempts to discover why all the women in the cases accused of murder are suddenly represented by the powerful QC Helen Seymour. Zoe has always believed that her loyalty lies completely with her boss and her job, but an incident leaves her feeling an outsider and she is no longer sure where her responsibility is.

This whole book is full of gender misconceptions. Men are glibly labelled as all the same; heavy drinkers who cannot communicate their feelings, laddish and with a pack mentality. Women are likewise seen as unnatural or leading men on. This intelligent read looks at the roles of men and women and of how they are expected to conform in certain situations. Above all is the spectre of women as witches which haunt the pages. Both Zoe and Sam are desperate to solve the case, but it is questionable whether they will be able to cooperate. This is a fast paced, excellent novel, with great tension, themes and characters. The scenes set in the Lake District add an atmospheric location. I hope that Sam and Zoe will return in further books as they are crying out for a series and, if they do, I will look forward to following their adventures.

I received a copy of this book, from the publisher, for review.

Thank you to the author and publisher for the review copy.

When night falls, fear spreads…
The Lake District: a wild landscape, rife with stories. Detectives Zoe Barnes and Sam Taylor are called to investigate the disappearance of two children.
But they quickly realise they have been drawn into a complex and unnerving case that hides a much darker intent: as they dig deeper, whispers grow of a community hiding a deadly secret – and talk of witches, the like of which hasn’t been heard since the seventeenth century, is spreading.

So books don’t really tend to scare me. The obvious exception being the odd Stephen King story, but this one was genuinely creepy, with terrifically atmospheric prose and an intriguing tale.

Starting with a literal witch hunt we then jump forward in time to a small community in the Lake District where two children have gone missing – sent down to investigate, Zoe and Sam soon become embroiled in local secrets, some of them their own.

I really did enjoy this one in a shivery behind the sofa kind of way, which is certainly one of the best ways of reading a terrific tale- one of my favourite things about it was the sense of place that the author put across. I have visited the Lakes and its true – in its quieter moments it can be both beautiful and haunting…its not difficult to immerse yourself in this story and believe that perhaps something dark is afoot..

The novel also had a wonderful flow to it, keeping you at the heart of the action with some great characterisation and a good few twists and turns. I loved that the behaviour of our main protagonists was not always honourable and often misguided – I loved Zoe, at the same time I often found her rather foolish.

Overall a fantastic read which makes me want to seek out Mr Grieves other novel, SleepWalkers, as soon as possible.

Happy Reading Folks!
3.0 étoiles sur 5 Sensational suspenseful storytelling with a cast of mesmerising characters... 12 février 2014

A Cry in the Night is Tom Grieves 2nd novel, set within the wild landscape of the majestic Lake District. Heart pounding intensity and shocking drama moved me inwardly and had me gripping the pages with chilling terror. This thoughtful, deeply poignant tale catches you unawares so as to leave you aghast at the graphic candour. Harsh and acutely sharp, the words pierce you like shards of frozen ice at your very inmost core - - hence this story lingers as though carried upon the wind. The twisting account filled with complexity and detail leaves you guessing, whilst the descriptive engaging prose will amaze.

Not normally a reader of classic crime/ thriller I was stunned by how this story literally shook me to the core and sent shivers down my spine. The case of the missing children that detectives Zoe Barnes and Sam Taylor are assigned, transforms into something of such unforeseen magnitude and sinister secrets....all that lead to a historical backdrop! Seventeenth century witchcraft, ancient rituals and buried feelings of mistrust and deception spread through the unassuming chocolate-box village as a plague that has been unleashed. This is more than a mere simple mystery - this is a tantalizing tale that beautifully blends the past with the present so as to present you with something very real.

Not only is the unfolding saga interesting but I likewise found Zoe and Sam's relationship fascinating to explore, as mistrust and doubt are two factors that kept presenting themselves throughout. A Cry in the Night will have you engrossed until the last, astonishing revelations.

I am incredibly impressed by this brilliant book that I would highly recommend to fans of Barbara Erskine or Linwood Barclay. * I won a paperback copy of Tom Grieves new novel `A Cry in the Night' through a Goodreads, first-read giveaway*
