About the Book:
John Newton is a successful writer of true-life crime stories, specializing in unsolved murders from the past. He has a happy family life with his schoolteacher wife and two children. And he has a nice new home in the rural countryside. Life is good for John Newton.
Until the letters start arriving...
Dark, mysterious letters. Deadly letters with demands.
And then everything changes...
Until John Newton is faced with a seemingly insurmountable dilemma: he can choose between the survival of his daughter... or the rest of his family — not both.
Simon Clark lives in Doncaster, England with his family. When his first novel, Nailed by the Heart, made it through the slush pile in 1994 he banked the advance and embarked upon his dream of becoming a full-time writer. His subsequent novels include Blood Crazy, Darkness Demands, Death's Dominion and The Night of the Triffids, which continues the story of Wyndham's classic The Day of the Triffids. His revival of the wickedly ambulatory Triffid plants won the British Fantasy Society's August Derleth Award for best novel. He also created and co-presented "Winter Chills" for the BBC TV. His latest book from Severn House is The Midnight Man, a story of ghosts, madness and murder that features Vincent Van Gogh during one of the most turbulent periods of his life in 1888. Simon also experiments in short film, one of which, "Dear Simon, Where Do You Get Your Ideas From?" has been featured in the UK's Channel 4 ShortDoc series, and earned the accolade "the ultimate in TV democracy."
