Nevertheless, Jinx is convinced that she would never try to kill herself over Leo. Surely it was she who wanted to break the engagement.

When the help of Dr. Alan Protheroe of the Nightingale Clinic, Jinx slowly begins to unlock her nightmares and piece together the fragments of the last few weeks.

    " I really enjoyed this mystery. It kept me wondering until the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elvira Millar | 2/14/2014

    " I didn't care for the characters in this book. I also thought it was too repetitious. I tried to figure out "who done it", but I didn't before it was revealed...so I guess it was a good mystery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alice Carey | 2/6/2014

    " Love Minette Walters novels "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ruth | 2/1/2014

    " took me a littlewhile to get into it but once i did i really enjoyed it and was kept guessing almost to the end "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda Patterson | 1/31/2014

    " Horror, as only Minette Walters can do it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Singletary | 1/25/2014

    " C 4/2009/7 "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Naomi Moore | 1/15/2014

    " The story was enjoyable. The author gave away the antagonist at the beginning but it was still a good read. Some of the plot was formulaic but that didn't take away from the overall tension built in. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sip Ramos | 11/23/2013

    " Dark rooms of the mind are revealed here.. :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenny Meyer | 11/22/2013

    " Yet another great story by Minette. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Desira | 11/17/2013

    " This is good. A typical sort of who done it, the amnesiac, the doctor, the police, the dead bodies, and lots of family dysfunction. It was a page turner, and did a moderately good job of trying to mislead you from the truth. I enjoyed it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Peggy Jeffcoat | 8/28/2013

    " This is the first book I have read by this author and I want to read more. She reminds me of Ruth Rendell/Barbara Vine...phychological thriller "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Devorah | 7/5/2013

    " I forgave the author for naming her Jinx because the story was so compelling. Why would anyone frame her for an apparent suicide? Why does she remember so little? Is she mad? Is she a murderer? Minette Walters is a master at bringing new perspectives to the mystery/thriller genre. A great read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nigel Watts | 6/19/2013

    " I may have seen a tv adaptation of this as parts seamed familiar, this did not detract from the book as adaptations rarely meet up to the original work. Some of the characters were a little too stereotypical but the plot keeps you interested to the last page. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kcastro | 4/13/2013

    " I didn't like some of the language. Maybe in England (where the story takes place) they use those words in ways we don't. I won't look for this author again. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Elaine | 3/7/2013

    " I am a big fan of Walters's earlier books-the Sculptress, the Ice House-but this one fell a bit flat. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cindee | 11/15/2012

    " Sorry to say my reading tastes seem to have evolved since I read Sculptress years ago. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Claire Hood | 6/15/2012

    " Although this kept me guessing until the end,for me it is the poorest Minette Walters book I have read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Rosabelle Purnama | 4/3/2012

    " this is only slightly better than the scold's bridle. i read it only because it's an omnibus. this book is still boring and i will definitely cross off minette walters' books from any future readings.. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pauline | 3/27/2012

    " Average read by this author. I have read better by her. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 10/15/2011

    " A surprisingly good read. I don't read many mysteries or thrillers anymore as I feel they are all pretty much the same and quite boring, but The Dark Room proved to be an entertaining, suspenseful read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Georgina | 4/11/2011

    " I enjoyed this a lot, and will definitely be looking out for more of her books. "

    " We all have something we'd like to forget, something too painful or frightening to remember. But with the right support at your side - the door always opens to let the light shine through. "

    " You can tell that in this book Walters hadn't yet perfected her craft but there are some of the glimpses of the Devil's Feather here. "
