It's publication day for Whirlwind by Hilary Norman.
A ruthless psychopath with a long-held grudge unleashes a terrifying scheme of revenge on a small New England town in this tautly-paced, compelling thriller.
Liza Plain, a Boston journalist hunting her big break, is dreading spending Christmas in Shiloh, Rhode Island with her difficult grandfather - until news of the disappearance of a retired local priest triggers her suspicion that this could relate to a series of unsolved, church-linked missing persons cases.
Michael Rider used to lead a decent life, but past traumas have left him close to breaking point. Now he's receiving strange emails from a group called Whirlwind, offering him a chance to avenge old wrongs.
Liza and Michael will both be in Shiloh on Christmas Eve. When a blizzard will seal off the village. When an outrage will be perpetrated. When Liza will find herself at the heart of a major news story, trapped in an abyss of nightmarish discovery and life-threatening danger.
"Excellent. A gripping, frighteningly real and very disturbing novel" DAVID SUCHET
