In the first of these strange houses, a gruesome murder has already taken place.
Will is then told that his own family is in mortal danger.
The only way he can keep them safe is to visit each of the houses on the website in person – before the police discover what has happened there.
Seven gruesome homicides.

Praise and Reviews for Scare Me:
“If SCARE ME is anything to go by, then this first release from Angry Robot’s new crime imprint ‘Exhibit A’ will be the first in a long line of fresh and exciting crime thrillers. From the opening it’s a plot that will have its readers gripped and pulled headfirst into its globe-trotting internet-controlled macabre treasure hunt as Will Frost rushes from one crime scene to the next, his sole desire to rescue two people who he holds dear to his heart, whilst his life around him begins to shred and tatter. With a sadistic and creative killer in its midst and the nagging fear throughout as to what in the Frost’s family’s world could have brought the events upon them, Scare Me is a thrilling ride. If I dare quote Lady Penelope here: ‘Parker…Well done!’”– Keith B Walters in Books & Writers.
“I’ve seen online that Scare Me is set to be adapted into a film by Prison Break star turned screenwriter Wentworth Miller, which is such an achievement seeing as the novel hasn’t been formally released yet! Either way, it will definitely be a movie on my one to watch list! Scare Me is fast paced and satisfyingly gruesome; a tantalising psychological thriller not to be missed.”
- Bookshelf Butterfly
“A very taut extremely fast paced novel that drags the reader into the spinning world of a psychopathic serial killer and doesn’t let up until the very last pages. Scare Me is a book that readers will finish in one sitting and end up exhausted from event after horrifying event coming one after another. Excellent read and masterful fleshing out of people forced to comply with the dictates of lunacy, and this includes the motives of the killer explained at the book’s ending.” — BookBitch.
“I dare you to read three pages of Scare Me and put it down.There’s a reason why it’s has already been optioned for film-and it’s not even out yet! Lock your doors, keep the lights on and plan to stay up late, because this is one very clever scavenger hunt from hell that you won’t want to miss!”
“Scare Me is an engrossing, addictive, and all consuming thriller by an author who looks to have mastered the craft of suspense and heart pounding action. I highly recommend Scare Me.”
- Josh, Just a Guy That Likes to Read.
“The plotting of the thriller and the unravelling mystery are masterfully done. It keeps you on the edge of your seat and guessing all the way. The plot dances to and fro, changing expectations and throwing a surprise twist at you right at the end.” — LitNerdAroundTheWorld.
