Product Description

A scratch at the door. Owl cries in the night. Black candles burnt to the ground. Why is Rayne suddenly so frightened?

Rayne came to the country to escape the stifling city, to find space and silence. She couldn’t wait to get away from everything: her mum, the estate, Damien. But the solitude of Morton’s Keep is nothing like she thought it would be. It’s eerie. It’s creepy. And her new friends from the local town seem so interested in her, and in the old house. Someone – or something – is watching Rayne. What if the silence she finds in Morton’s Keep is one from which she’ll never wake up? A scream-in-the-dark psychological thriller from the acclaimed author of Leaving Poppy.

“Beautifully written, deeply frightening.” The Telegraph

“This is about as spine-tingling as a novel gets.” The Daily Mirror

Kate Cann

When Kate was a child, she wanted to be a witch. Her first foray into writing was a collection of spells full of rats’ tails and bats’ wings. Kate says, “At thirteen, I began keeping a lurid diary, full of adoration or loathing, depending on who I was writing about. I used my later diaries for the DIVING IN trilogy.

I never thought ‘I want to be a writer’, but I loved books and writing. When my two kids came along I set up as a freelance copy-editor and worked from home. By chance I got given some teenage books to edit, and I hated the way they treated sexual relationships: they were either full of gloom and doom, or were gushy, unrealistic candyfloss. So I got bitten by the ‘I can do better than this’ bug, and started writing. About a year after that, DIVING IN was accepted for publication.”

When I ran out of material from my diaries and memories, I realized my daughter and son were teenagers, and started eavesdropping on them. “
