Bush pilot and family man Tom Stokes is about to face the worst day of his life. On a clear winter morning he sets out in his Cessna 180 to do some repairs on a remote hunt camp, leaving his five year old son and very pregnant wife snug in their beds.
On the return trip, a squall forces him into an emergency landing and he winds up—quite literally—in the lap of petty criminal Dale Knight. Dale, now a fugitive from the law—and worse, from a merciless drug lord who just happens to be his brother—draws Tom into a web of mayhem and treachery that puts not only his life at risk, but the lives of his wife, son…and unborn child.
SQUALL is a fast-paced, darkly-comic tale of murder and gang-style retribution that grabs the reader on page one and simply does not let go.
PRAISE FOR COSTELLO’S PREVIOUS NOVELS
“Costello…keeps the action moving and the suspense ratcheted up tight.”
—Margaret Cannon, The Globe and Mail
“The best horror novel I’ve read since Stephen King’s own Pet Sematary. …Costello knows how to tantalize his readers, priming them for the horrors to come…”
“A wonderful blend of horror, psychology and the power of suggestion that leaves you guessing right up to the very end!”
—The New Jersey Grapevine
“Sean Costello is one of the horror genre’s brightest new stars, and…Captain Quad will only enhance his position.”
