It's a holiday home from hell - deep in an ancient forest where no one can hear your screams. Something horrific is going on in the house, something that defies the imagination. Even hardened detective Jeff Temple, hunting down a brutal murderer, is shocked to discover the chilling secret. When American Jack Keaton decides to take his family to the house on vacation, he's warned not to go. He's told they won't be safe....but he doesn't listen.

     
Excerpt
Genna Boyd thought she was alone in the house. That’s why she believed it was safe to make the call. But she was fearful nonetheless.
Her heart pounded as her thumb hovered over the keys on her mobile phone. For a long, agonising moment she hesitated, knowing that she was about to take a monumental risk.
But she felt she had no choice. It was the right thing to do. If she did not make an effort to warn him then the guilt would be an unbearable burden for the rest of her life. She’d done some horrible and despicable things during her twenty six years on the planet; things that would shame and disgust most decent people.
But she couldn’t bring herself to do this. Not now that she had thought it through.


Professional Reviews

Gave me nightmares
“Urban Myth is a gripping thriller, set near Burley in the New Forest. The book charts a family holiday which turns into a horrifying ordeal. Strange goings-on in an old house and a sordid murder make for a holiday they’ll never forget!
Author James Raven has written a real page-turner which managed to keep me awake long into the night. The writing is fast –paced and the tension will leave you on the edge of the sofa. Raven writes a real heart-stopper, and this book is well worth a read.
If you live in an isolated house in the woods, this is not the kind of book you want to read before bedtime,” LISTED MAGAZINE.


Terrific fun
"This is a very satisfying read, with some solid police work and a plethora of nightmarish events. Terrific fun, " Books Monthly.
