Cold Hands Synopsis

The writer of the bestselling Kill Your Friends has turned to crime, and his debut is a gut-wrenching, heart-breaking thriller that will take your breath away. Donnie Miller counts himself lucky. After a troubled and impoverished upbringing in Scotland, he now has all he wants: a caring wife, a bright and happy son, a beautiful house in remote wilderness of central Canada. As the brutal northern winter begins to bite, he can sit back and enjoy life. But there are noises in the nearby woods, signs of some mysterious watcher. When the family dog disappears, Donnie makes a horrifying discovery. Is it wolves, as the police suspect, or something far more dangerous, far darker? What secrets has Donnie been keeping? And why does he have the terrible sense that his dream was never going to last?

Cold Hands Press Reviews

'Brilliantly written, Cold Hands is that rarest of things - a gripping thriller with real depth. An intense, exhilarating adrenaline rush, I found myself staying up all night to finish it in one sitting. Wonderful.' -- S. J. Watson, author of 'Before I Go to Sleep

'I finished it a sprint, almost shaking. Ridiculously, disturbingly compelling' - Observer

'This thriller announces the arrival of a tremendous new talent...It drives the breath from your body with its pace, suspense and enveloping horror...Terrifying and mysterious. Superbly told and achingly sad, this book grabs your heart strings and threatens to tear them out.' Daily Mail


'Perhaps the most cleverly constructed and incendiary thriller I've ever read. The great books in this genre take you on an emotional roller-coaster, but the best, like this one, also have you trampling through a moral minefield.' -- Irvine Welsh


'Almost unbearable tension.A thriller that delivers on every level' Big Issue
