Publisher's Summary

The #1 Audible bestseller from the author of The Stone Man (shortlisted for the Audible Audiobook of the Year Award 2015)
There are hangovers, there are bad hangovers, and then there's waking up inside someone else's head. Thirty-something bartender Charlie Wilkes is faced with this dilemma when he wakes up to find himself trapped inside The Black Room - a space consisting of impenetrable darkness and a huge, ethereal screen floating in its center. It is through this screen that he sees the world of his female host, Minnie.
How did he get there? What has happened to his life? And how can he exist inside the mind of a troubled, fragile, but beautiful woman with secrets of her own? Uncertain whether he's even real or if he's just a figment of his host's imagination, Charlie must enlist Minnie's help if he is to find a way out of The Black Room, where the light of the screen goes out every time Minnie closes her eyes….
In The Darkness, That's Where I'll Know You tells the complete story of The Black Room, parts one to four. It contains all of the adventures of Charlie and Minnie, guaranteed to keep the listener on the edge of his or her seat.

Highly recommended

A friend once summed up the quality I like so much in Richard Matheson's writing as "Ordinary people in extraordinary situations." The same applies to Luke Smitherd's writing, which explains why I've binged my way through all of his books on Audible.

It's hard to pin a genre to these ; they're not really full on sci fi or fantasy, rather they're the journey of believable, engaging everyday characters dealing with a world inexplicably tilted on its axis.

Whatever genre it is, it works for me.

Yes completely

Any additional comments?

If you're anything like me and get a little fed up with the same sort of stories and want to experience a very different refreshing concept, still with gripping drama, lots of mystery and want to go on a different kind of journey then there really is no need to be still reading this. What are you waiting for ?. Best credit i have spent in a very long time. (Apart from The Stone Man) Off to purchase the rest of this authors books.
