Publisher's Summary

There are hangovers, there are bad hangovers, and then there's waking up inside someone else's head. Bartender Charlie Wilkes is faced with this exact dilemma when he wakes 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 Charlie sees the world of Minnie - his unwitting and unwilling host - while he undergoes an out-of-body experience like no other.
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 is just a figment of Minnie's imagination, Charlie must enlist her help - as well as his newfound psychic abilities - if he is to find a way out of The Black Room, a place where even the light of the screen goes out every time Minnie closes her eyes....

Where the story really gets going

Any additional comments?

I think the second book adds so much more to the story than the first one, which I feel just set the scene but not much really happened. This book answers a lot of questions, but of course brings up even more which is good, you feel more immersed in the book and attached to the characters for it. There are a few audio editing mistakes (repeated sentences and bloopers) which I mentioned to Luke through his facebook page. He was really nice about it and apparently these are resolved in the combined book version, so I would probably recommend getting that than buying them individually.

Gripping!...hurry up with books 3 & 4!!

What did you like most about The Woman in the Night?

As with Book 1, I loved the originality. Book 2 carries on where we left off, but the mystery deepens. I honestly can't imagine where this will go in Books 3 & 4 but I can't wait to find out.

What other book might you compare The Woman in the Night to, and why?

The first book of The Black Room series is all I can think to compare this with...I can't think of any other book I'd liken it to.

What about Luke Smitherd’s performance did you like?

He's easy to listen to and he brought the characters to life...what more could you want?

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

yes but I'm not posting any spoilers here.

Any additional comments?

It's so exciting when you stumble across an author you've not heard of before and find you instantly love their work. 'The Stone Man' was my introduction to Luke's work and it was a fantastic book. Now I'm looking forward to reading (listening to) the rest of his books as soon as they are available.
