R.J. Parker's creative career began as a TV script writer, editor and producer. It was this background that fed into a series of cinematic, high-concept thrillers that grabs the reader from the very first page and doesn't release them until the last.

The Removal Man is an utterly unputdownable suspense thriller from the author of The Dinner Party and The Good Neighbour that imagines your worst house-moving nightmare - and then dials it up to 11.


Rose is moving. For her and her son, Noah, this is going to be a fresh start.

She's almost finished packing but Noah is determined to spend one last night camping out in the garden like he used to. Rose agrees as long as he wraps up warm inside their small tent.

Four hours later she's woken by a frantic banging on the window.

It's Noah.

There's someone in the garden. 

That's when Rose picks up the kitchen knife.

Can they survive the night? An intruder brings not just a battle of wits and survival but also a series of revelations about secrets long kept.
