The Rules Synopsis

Amber's an expert when it comes to staying hidden - she's been trained her whole life for it. But what happens when the person you're hiding from taught you everything you know? When a letter from her dad arrives, Amber knows she's got to move - and fast. He's managed to find her and she knows he'll stop at nothing to draw her back into the extreme survivalist way of life he believes in. All of a sudden the Rules she's spent so long trying to escape are the ones keeping her safe. But for how long? 

The Rules Press Reviews

''A heart-thuddingly nervy thriller' -- Financial Times

'The Rules is a gulp-read with an addictive build-up of dread and a breathtaking finale' -- Sue Wallman, author of Lying about Last Summer

'This is a thought-provoking, hugely intelligent thriller, written in Darnton's incisive style, that will stay with you long after you have read the last enigmatic line' -- Mel Darbon, author of Rosie Loves Jack
