    Four friends. One night. Not everyone will come out alive . . .

    The gripping new stand-alone mystery from 'world-class crime writer' Ragnar Jónasson

    When a deadly snowstorm strikes the Icelandic highlands, four friends seek shelter in a small, abandoned hunting lodge.

    It is in the middle of nowhere and there's no way of communicating with the outside world.

    They are isolated, but they are not alone . . .

    As the night darkens, and fears intensify, an old tragedy gradually surfaces - one that forever changed the course of their friendship.

    Those dark memories could hold the key to the mystery the friends now find themselves in.

    And whether they will survive until morning . . .

    Praise for Ragnar Jónasson

    'Is this the best crime writer in the world today?' The Times

    'An intensely gripping mystery, Ragnar Jonasson is a poet of the "dark, wet and cold", of the "gloom, cold and rain". The climactic revelations are credible and moving' The Times

    'Invigorating Iceland-set slice of Nordic Noir' Daily Mail

    'A mist-shrouded blend of horror and psychological thriller . . . works in every way' Booklist
