  • A high speed avalanche of a thriller.

  • Stunning . . . spell-binding tension.

  • A terrific winter chiller set in the unforgiving Norwegian mountain landscape, Where Blood Runs Cold depicts exactly how far we will go to survive - and to protect the ones we love. Utterly gripping.

    AMY McCULLOCH, author of Breathless
  • Riveting . . . Kristian gives this extended chase a nightmarish intensity.'

    John Williams, MAIL ON SUNDAY
  • 'Where Blood Runs Cold is a heart-pounding survival thriller set in the starkly beautiful far north of Norway. Gripping and adrenalin-fuelled, yet also written with a tenderness that warms even the most chilling of chases.'

    LUCY CLARKE, author of The Castaways
  • Impressively sustained . . . echoes of Hammond Innes's tales of adventure . . . even of Michael Crichton. But the strongest element, the crystalline depiction of the Arctic landscape, where the sapping cold is the real enemy, is all the achievement of Kristian . . . also an affecting tribute to paternal love and the power of the human spirit.

    James Owen, THE TIMES 'Thriller of the Month'
  • Compulsively readable, and written with real heart - I devoured this.

    SAM LLOYD, author of The Memory Wood
  • The best Giles Kristian novel so far - and that's setting the bar almost impossibly high. Moving from the past has freed up one of our generations most creative and thoughtful writers to craft a story of generational love, of care and loss, of knowing when to let go of that to which we most want to hold on - and all within the envelope of a narrative thriller that is absolutely of our time and essential to our moving beyond where we are. It's exciting and beautiful, and inspiring and thought-provoking, all in one. Unmissable.

    MANDA SCOTT, author of A Treachery of Spies
  • 'From its slowburn start, Where Blood Runs Cold moves rapidly to become a white-knuckle, explosive ride with more twists and turns than a skiing black run. It takes you to the edge, to the awful 'what would I doto save my child' moment. First class.'

    BEN KANE, author of Lionheart
  • Giles Kristian takes the reader into the Arctic's terrible beauty with the authenticity of a man who's been there and done that. This is a prescient, hard bitten roller-coaster of a thriller.

    ANTHONY RICHES, author of Nemesis
