Outside

12.29

When a deadly snowstorm strikes the Icelandic highlands, four friends seek shelter in a small, abandoned hunting lodge. It is in the middle of nowhere and there’s no way of communicating with the outside world. They are isolated – but they are not alone. As the night darkens, and fears intensify, an old tragedy gradually surfaces – one that forever changed the course of their friendship. Those dark memories could hold the key to the mystery the friends now find themselves in – and whether they will survive until morning.

They are isolated – but they are not alone . . .

When a deadly snowstorm strikes the Icelandic highlands, four friends seek shelter in a tiny, abandoned hunting lodge.

A terrifying discovery . . .

Far from offering relief, however, they find something truly shocking. Yet they dare not leave.

A haunting darkness . . .

As the night lengthens, their fears intensify. Old secrets and past tragedies spill into the light. And, slowly, these four friends begin to turn on one another.

Outside, a murderous storm rages.

But is inside even deadlier?

‘Invigorating Iceland-set slice of Nordic Noir’ Daily Mail

‘A mist-shrouded blend of horror and psychological thriller . . . works in every way’ Booklist
