In Creeklaw County the bodies are piling up…

Stranger in the Room sees the return of the brilliant Keye Street as another deeply disturbing case puts her detective skills to the ultimate test. Amanda Kyle Williams’ gripping Keye Street crime series will enthral fans of Lee Child and Karin Slaughter.

‘Readers of this fast-paced thriller will be eager for the next Street tale’ – Publishers Weekly

Keye Street, ex-FBI profiler and private detective, always looks out for those closest to her. But sometimes looking after herself is quite enough to handle. She’s teetering on the brink, not quite sure if she’s winning or losing in her battle with herself. But when her cousin, Miki Ashton, sees a stranger inside her house, it’s time for Keye to lend a hand.

Meanwhile, Keye’s mentor, Lieutenant Aaron Rauser, is embroiled in a disturbing case. When a dog returns alone from its walk, the hunt is on for the missing boy. As the mystery deepens and the bodies pile up, Rauser needs Keye’s expert profiling skills to unravel the killer’s bizarre signature – tears.

Battling her demons takes up a lot of Keye’s time. But on top of that she’s battling the bad guys. If she can ignore the voice from her past, that is…

What readers are saying about Stranger In The Room:

‘Keye is feisty, funny and very believable. The location is also very vividly described – we can almost feel the steamy heat of Atlanta. The novel is quirky with a lot of humour, some of it quite dark. Undoubtedly an exciting read

Thrill a minute action and a rollercoaster of a ride to the end

Streets ahead of other thrillers. Contains plenty of humour amongst the gore and the police procedural elements – this book is well worth a read


'Smart, ironic and compelling, this 21st century heroine is certain to gather ever more fans as the series unfolds. She is too great a character not to last. Catch her before she becomes a household name.'

'An explosive, unpredictable and psychologically complex thriller that turns crime fiction cliches inside out... Those looking for a strong female protagonist not a sexpot and as intelligent, tough, and flawed as any male thriller hero will be richly rewarded'
