Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Tense and exhilarating, this book just kept getting better with every page. The pleasant slow start creating characters and atmosphere builds to a climax that literally took my breath away. You know itâs coming but are shocked anyway, along with the characters. In essence itâs a thriller but with a very human story. The portrayal of wilderness fire-fighting is quite outstanding. An exceptional read.

Comparison: Nicholas Evans, Michael Marshall, Patricia Tyrrell.

A big thank you for the two Lovereading bags I ordered, which have arrived safely. I love mine and will use it with pride. The bags are lovely quality, sturdy and support a good cause in the Rewrap initiative; I think they make the perfect accessory for any book lover. The second bag was a gift for my sister and she says she will take it to her next book group meeting to help spread the Lovereading word. Once again, many thanks. Emily Wright

Synopsis

The Wildfire Season by Andrew Pyper

Of all the end-of-the-world places he could have run to after he was burned, Miles McEwan chose Ross River. Buried deep in the vast wilderness of the Yukon, it seemed the perfect place to escape the past. Best of all, he could carry on doing the job he loved – fighting fire.

But five years on, Miles is still troubled by phantoms of his previous life: the young man whose agonizing death preys on his conscience, and the woman he abandoned as a consequence. And in the dark forest around Ross River violence is brewing. A small party, out to track bear, is about to encounter nature in its wildest and most ferocious guise. Elsewhere a killer is going about his work, quietly and ruthlessly.

As the survivors of the hunting party are picked off one by one and fire rages through the mountains, Miles embarks on a desperate rescue mission, driven by love for a daughter who, until this dangerous summer, had been a perfect stranger.

The Wildfire Season is a remarkable tour de force – an edgy psychological thriller, a supernatural chiller, a terrifying tale of untamed nature, a poignant love story and a riveting follow-up to Andrew Pyper's bestselling Lost Girls.
