9780099592143: Cold Hands

A terrifying, evocative and gut-wrenching thriller -- announcing the arrival of a major new voice in the genre.
     You thought you could leave the past behind. Think again.
     Donnie Miller counts himself lucky. Living in a beautiful, spacious house in the wild and remote landscape of central Canada, he spends his days writing for the local newspaper, working on a film script, and acting as house-husband. After a troubled and impoverished upbringing in Scotland, he now has all he wants: a caring wife, a bright and happy son, a generous father-in-law. As the brutal northern winter begins to bite, he can sit back and enjoy life.
     But his peace is soon broken. 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?
     A taut, shocking and visceral thriller that will leave you gasping for breath, Cold Hands is the first in an exciting new series by the remarkable John J. Niven.
