'The Chill is an eerie dive into the murky depths of the supernatural. A story that has you looking back over your shoulder on every page' MICHAEL CONNELLY
In this terrifying thriller, a supernatural force set in motion a century ago threatens to devastate New York City.

As the dark water begins inexorably to rise, the demand for a fresh sacrifice emerges from the deep . . .
