Thomas Brogan is a serial killer, and he has nowhere left to hide. At least until he finds an abandoned house at the end of a terrace on a quiet street. And when he discovers that he can access three other houses through the attic space, the real fun begins. Because the one thing that Brogan enjoys even more than killing, is playing games with his victims. And his new neighbours have more than enough dark secrets to make this game his best one yet..
The Resident is the terrifying and so, so creepy tale of Thomas Brogan, a serial killer in the UK.
Brogan is on the run after his latest kills, the police now know who he is, so he takes refuge in an abandoned terraced house. As he discusses everything with his inner voice, his constant companion, he decides to look in the loft.
He finds, to his absolute joy, the four terraced houses share the loft space!
He watches the residents of the houses as he gets to learn their secrets…..he also waits till some leave the house so he can enter their homes, eat, shower and rummage through their possessions……he has a game to play…….who will he choose?
Will it be the elderly Elsie, deaf, ill and confused?
Will it be Janice and Brian, the bickering couple?
Will it be Collette and Martyn, both with secrets?
As Brogan secretly watches them all the tension builds…..
The Resident is terrifying……and disturbing….and creepy. It races by as you watch and wonder what Brogan will do next….(glancing at the loft door wondering whether to put bolts on it….just to make sure……! the loft hatch in my home is in my bedroom and that really didn’t help me sleep!!!).
While Brogan is undoubtedly evil, you do feel sorry for him at times too, all credit to David Jackson’s clever writing. It’s dark, terrifying and utterly gripping from start to finish. I loved every minute.
