Jonathan Dark or The Evidence Of Ghosts

Listen to a sample

What to expect

Maria King knows a secret London. Born blind, she knows the city by sound and touch and smell. But surgery has restored her sight – only for her to find she doesn’t want it.

Jonathan Dark sees the shadowy side of the city. A DI with the Metropolitan Police, he is haunted by his failure to save a woman from the hands of stalker. Now it seems the killer has set his sights on Maria, and is leaving her messages in the most gruesome of ways.

Tracing the source of these messages leads Maria and Jonathan to a London they never knew. Finding the truth will mean seeing a side to the city where life and death is a game played by the powerful, where everyone is lost but nothing is missing and where the all the answers are hiding, if only they listen to the whispers on the streets.

Shot through with love and loss, ghosts and grief, A.K. Benedict weaves a compelling mystery that will leave you looking over your shoulder and asking what lurks in the dark.

Critics Review

  • Praise for supernatural crime thriller THE EVIDENCE OF GHOSTS:

    This haunting supernatural thriller is full of hidden treasure that will delight you long after you’ve turned the last page

    SARAH PINBOROUGH, bestselling author of BEHIND HER EYES
  • An absolutely glorious crime/fantasy/ghost story mash-up. In a seriously crowded genre, A K Benedict has produced something original, quirky and enormous fun…Beautifully written, darkly funny, constantly surprising…my find of the year so far

  • AK Benedict is snapping at the heels of Ben Aaronovitch as one of the new stars of the sub-genre of crime with a supernatural twist…A sparkling authorial voice and sassy dialogue keep the weird story grounded but ultimately the novel is, as it should be, haunting

  • Wonderfully drawn characters, well-crafted sentences and an eye for just the right detail in the right place

  • A K Benedict can write beautifully and has imaginative flair

  • Wonderful! The work on an exquisitely twisted imagination
