The Scottish writer’s third novel is a taut psychological thriller set in a quiet, typically British street.

Stephen and Caroline Day are an active young couple until the neighbours from hell move into the flat above. Suddenly each day becomes a nightmare and they’re shocked from sleep every night. After weeks of police inactivity, Stephen snaps and takes increasingly inventive and extreme revenge on his tormentors. But there are horrifying unforeseen consequences…

Noise Abatement breaks the sound barrier on this contemporary issue and is impossible to put down.

IAN RANKIN says: “Carol Anne Davis writes with dangerous authority about the deadly everyday. Her work is dark in ways that Ruth Rendell and Minette Walters can only dream of. This is our world, skewed and skewered, revealed in its true sanguinary colours. You’ve got to read her.”


“I would advise anyone to read her.” West Coast Magazine
“An accomplished crime novel. Well written and, appropriately, claustrophobic.” – Time Out
“Without doubt Scotland’s best female writer of suspense fiction .” – The Times
