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.


What the Critics Say

Original and engaging.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Definitely. It was a unique story and and engaging and entertaining listen.

Who was your favorite character and why?

This was not a book with a large cast. The main character Charlie was probably my favourite. He was a likeable everyman who found himself entangled in some crazy happenings and dealt with them pretty well.

What about Luke Smitherd’s performance did you like?

I usually avoid books narrated by their authors, as 9 times out of 10 they are awfully performed, but I'm glad I took a chance on this one as Luke Smitherd gave a competent performance. He was not the best narrator I've ever listened to but he was far from the worst. I even think he improved as the story progressed. I'll be happy to listen to his other books.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Not really but there was a lot of moments when I was completely sucked into the story so I guess that is a good sign.

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed this unusual sci-fi/horror.

A fantastic book,something different, Brilliant.

I have never read anything like this before and I get through a lot of books.The fact that the writer is also the narrator means the characters sound as he wanted and not someone else's interpretation.The possibly baffling storyline is explained so clearly it is easy to follow all the complexities and will have you desperate to carry on with the story when you have to do something else.
The ending actually made me cry,something no other book has done,I became so involved with the story I just didn't want it to end.
