One cold November night in 2014, in a small town in the north west of England, 26-year-old Arla Macleod bludgeoned her mother, father and younger sister to death with a hammer, in an unprovoked attack known as the 'Macleod Massacre'.

Now incarcerated at a medium-security mental-health institution, Arla will speak to no one but Scott King, an investigative journalist, whose `Six Stories' podcasts have become an internet sensation. King finds himself immersed in an increasingly complex case, interviewing five witnesses and Arla herself, as he questions whether Arla's responsibility for the massacre was a diminished as her legal team made out.

As he unpicks the stories, he finds himself thrust into a world of deadly forbidden `games', online trolls, and the mysterious Black-eyed Children, whose presence extends far beyond the delusions of a murderess...

Dark, chilling and gripping, Hydra is both a classic murder mystery and an up-to-the-minute, startling thriller, that shines light in places you may never, ever want to see again.

    Unique and devilishly good is an understatement!

    Six stories plus plus!

    A novel written in a series of podcasts about a woman in a hospital for having murdered her family.
    But why and what really happened? Several interviewees including the woman herself chat to the famous podcaster from Six Stories as he investigates another mystery.

    This gets right down to the bone when it comes to the human psyche and mental health. Reading this at night made sleep an elusive dream! There’s strength in the writing, sheer brilliance in the dialogue and a frisson which stays with you long after reading. Full review on tour but don’t hesitate to pick this one up!
