Survival is murder . . .

An overturned coach full of students. All of them are trapped.
An isolated chalet full of friends. Soon they'll be enemies.

A stranded cable car full of strangers. One of them is dead.

Outside, a snowstorm rages.
Inside each group, a killer lurks.
But that's not their only problem.

Why is no rescue coming? What are they trying to escape from? And who are the terrifying Whistlers?

  • An exceptional thriller that blew me away with its original, high-octane plot, jaw-dropping twists and characters I cared about. When I wasn't reading The Drift I was thinking about it. A writer at the top of her game
