PLAY. Andrew, the manager of Shanamore Holiday Cottages, watches his only guest via a hidden camera in her room. One night the unthinkable happens: a shadowy figure emerges onscreen, kills her and destroys the camera. But who is the murderer? How did they know about the camera? And how will Andrew live with himself? PAUSE. Natalie wishes she'd stayed at home as soon as she arrives in the wintry isolation of Shanamore. There's something creepy about the manager. She wants to leave, but she can't - not until she's found what she's looking for. REWIND. 'Psycho' meets 'Fatal Attraction' in this explosive story about a murder caught on camera. You've already missed the start. To get the full picture you must rewind the tape and play it through to the end, no matter how shocking.

What the critics say

A wonderful Gothic confection that sticks in the mind long after the last page is turned... it confirms her position as a major new talent in thriller writing. Daily Mail Chilling and mystifying from the get-go, this inventive Irish thriller involves various aspects of digital culture - secret voyeur groups, Instagram influencers and clickbait journalists - to tell a tale that constantly surprises. Fresh and modern contribution to Ireland noir. Times Crime Club Rewind is a topclass thriller, fast-paced and vividly rendered... Rewind confirms its author as one of Irish crime writing's leading lights. Irish Times A compelling and thoroughly enjoyable read. Skinny Catherine Ryan Howard is a gift to crime writing. Her characters are credible, her stories are original and her plotting is ingenious. Every book is a treat to look forward to. Liz Nugent, author of Unravelling Oliver I was riveted. True-crime homage as it should be done. So very clever... and just gripping the whole way through. Ryan Howard is a superstar. Jo Spain, author of The Confession A hugely compelling thriller. Twisty, suspenseful and totally engrossing. SUPERB Will Dean, author of Dark Pines Oh, my word! I was absolutely invested in the story from start to finish. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough... Excellent story-telling. A compelling read. Patricia Gibney, author of The Stolen Girls There's no hitting stop in this cleverly crafted thriller. With its claustrophobic, isolated setting and superb cast of characters, Rewind will keep you utterly absorbed until the last tense turn of the page. Compelling and brilliant. The perfect read for any crime fiction fan. Olivia Kiernan, author of Too Close to Breathe The chillingly clever plot reminded me of Ruth Rendell: Catherine Ryan Howard is a genius at psychological suspense. Elizabeth Haynes, author of Into the Darkest Corner Catherine Ryan Howard is one of the best Irish crime writers around, and her novels always feel completely authentic and true to their setting. Rewind is no exception and in the twisty plot Catherine also displays an in-depth and incredibly vivid knowledge of social media and its perils. Supreme entertainment. Sinéad Crowley, author of Can Anybody Help Me? Rewind is brilliant: an expertly constructed thriller that plays on our worst fears about modern life. Catherine Ryan Howard has a genius for creating memorable and convincing characters - some appealing, some horrifying - and the plot moves back and forth through their lives like a pendulum counting down to the explosive ending. Rewind is exactly what I expect from Catherine: exceptional, original and compelling writing that's a joy to read. Jane Casey, author of Let the Dead Speak Creepy, atmospheric and beautifully written, this is her best one yet. Mark Edwards, author of The Magpies Rewind is terrific. A cast of brilliantly-drawn characters, whip-smart dialogue and the thrill of the remote Irish setting kept me hooked from the first page to the last. Gilly MacMillan, author of What She Knew Claustrophic, terrifying and most of all satisfying, Rewind sees Catherine Ryan Howard succeed in bringing something fresh and fierce to the crime genre once again. Totally gripping. Claire Allan, author of Her Name Was Rose This will be huge. It deserves to be. A prescient concept (Airbnb pervs...) told with a genius storytelling device. That's on top of great characters and a story that will absolutely hook you from page one. Fantastic. Amy Lloyd, author of The Innocent Wife Twisty and twisted, with the kind of meticulous plotting that shows real respect for the reader. Loved it! Caz Frear, author of Sweet Little Lies Completely immersive, deliciously creepy with the darkest of twists...this is a book that grabs your full attention and does not let go. Dervla McTiernan, author of The Ruin Part twisty thriller, part Black Mirror nightmare, Rewind is a deftly writtenpage-turner that keeps you guessing. A scary, cunning, and all too real exploration of contemporary dangers by a rising star of Irish noir. Zoje Stage, author of Bad Apple
