    'Atmospheric and very creepy' The Guardian

    'Goosebump-inducing...Unforgettable' Woman & Home

    'Unforgettable...there is something of Sylvia Plath in Lauren...One suspects that the real sorceress here is Golding, whose writing has given a voice to every wronged mother' The New York Times

    'Chilling story...stunning' Clare Mackintosh

    'Taps into every woman's fear that she will not be believed' Mel McGrath, author of The Guilty Party



    Behind the hospital curtain, someone is waiting . . .

    Lauren is alone on the maternity ward with her new-born twins when a terrifying encounter in the middle of the night leaves her convinced someone is trying to steal her children. Lauren, desperate with fear, locks herself and her sons in the bathroom until the police arrive to investigate.

    When DS Joanna Harper picks up the list of overnight incidents that have been reported, she expects the usual calls from drunks and wrong numbers. But then a report of an attempted abduction catches her eye. The only thing is that it was flagged as a false alarm just fifteen minutes later.

    Harper's superior officer tells her there's no case here, but Harper can't let it go so she visits the hospital anyway. There's nothing on the CCTV. No one believes this woman was ever there. And yet, Lauren claims that she keeps seeing the woman and that her babies are in danger, and soon Harper is sucked into Lauren's spiral of fear. But how far will they go to save children who may not even be in danger?

    Early readers can't stop raving about Little Darlings:

    'Every mother will see themselves in Lauren...taut with suspense'

    'You just need to read it and let the creepiness and uneasiness set in'

    'A disturbing and spine-chilling tale...This tale will keep readers on the edge of their seat'

    'A unique, haunting story that stays with you long after finishing it'

    Return Policy

    Incorrect, damaged or faulty items may be returned within 14 days of purchase for a replacement or full refund (including postage costs).

    Some of our discounted stock is "remaindered" or "marked" by the publishers. The publishers do this by placing a black stripe on the base of the book. We have attempted to display this to online customers by listing "REMAINDER" in the description of the book. We cannot accept returns because a book is marked by the publisher. If for some reason a book isn't listed as REMAINDER, we will advise the customer before processing the order.

    Should you change your mind once you have received your order, we may at our discretion offer a credit note or exchange.  Please contact us for approval.  All change of mind returns must be returned in a mint, unread condition together with proof of purchase within 14 days of purchase.
