Synopsis

She's the perfect host. He's the perfect victim.

Someone is hunting Connor. Alone, freezing, in the wilderness of Bodmin Moor, on an elite Special Forces training exercise, he'd be a fool to scorn the kindness of a local stranger. Wouldn't he?

At first, Eilidh seems to be an impeccable host. She offers Connor food and a warm bed - he finds it nearly impossible to leave her charming farmhouse.

But the choice isn't his to make.

There have been others before. None, though, as perfect as him.

Why would she let him leave?

Praise for Elle Connel:

"Down By The Water takes the reader on a weekend trip from hell... I loved the classy writing and ever-growing sense of unease in this clever subversion of a classic country house mystery" - Harriet Tyce

"A chilling drama" Sunday Times

"Misery for the Goop generation. You Can Stay is fantastic - an absolute treat of a book." - Catherine Simpson

"Witty, grounded and entertaining, this is a thrilling read." - Lynsey May

"You Can Stay was so gripping I read it in one compulsive sitting!" - Claire Askew

"Sinister and atmospheric" - Chris Brookmyre

"Absolutely loved this - so dark, yet laced with humour, and such clever plotting. Loved the characters, and the ending is sublime." - Susi Holliday

"I have never fallen so hard for a book this far out of my comfort zone. A stunning book about gender and power, and a fine homage to Stephen King's Misery. Deeply unsettling, and impossible to put down." - Claire L Heuchan

"A gripping mystery." - Nathan Ripley
