'Before you start this book, make sure of two things. One, you're outside in bright sunshine: the way Starling writes, anywhere else will feel way too dark and claustrophobic. And two, your Kindle’s got a waterproof cover, as you won’t want to put it down for anything.' - Harlan Coben.

‘A brilliant thriller. The action’s intense and the characters leap from the page. A fantastic and enthralling story from start to finish.’ - Robert Thorogood, Creator of BBC1’s 'Death in Paradise'.

'The Stay-Behind Cave is another departure for Boris Starling, a Second World War yarn that starts off as a boy's own adventure seeded with real history that slowly twists into something much more dark and imagined. A departure in subject it may be but in storytelling it is not, it bears all the usual Starling hallmarks of masterful pace and plotting. If you're already a fan you will not be disappointed. If you are new to his books, then this will make you a fan. Read it.' - Simon Toyne, author of The Sancti Trilogy.

Lord Of The Flies meets Flowers In The Attic.

December 1940. As the German army closes in on Gibraltar, 16-year-old Rassie Elder and five friends stumble across the most secret place on the Rock.

They were never supposed to know about this place, let alone find it. And now they're trapped inside, Gibraltar has fallen, and they'll stay alive only as long as they can remain undetected.

But danger is not just outside the cave. It's in there with them too. For there is no darkness greater than that of the human heart. And the terror is just beginning....

The greatest World War Two story never told. Until now.
