Publisher Description

THE TIMES THRILLER OF THE YEAR AND A SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER


'If you read only one thriller this year, make it this one: it is that good'
DAILY MAIL

'Gripping...impossible to forget. It should be on every reader's bookshelf' MICK HERRON

------

In rural Somerset in the middle of a blizzard, the unthinkable happens: a school is under siege.

Pupils and teachers barricade themselves into classrooms, the library, the theatre. The headmaster lies wounded in the library, unable to help his trapped students and staff. Outside, a police psychiatrist must identify the gunmen, while parents gather desperate for news.

In three intense hours, all must find the courage to stand up to evil and save the people they love.

Astonishingly good read

This book will have you in tears of sadness and joy at the braveness of others and the brute force power of hate versus love.

An awesome read

A powerful, moving and touching book. Even though the incident described in this book was horrible, there was a beautiful human story inside. Lots of them, in fact. This book would genuinely touch your soul.
