A British girl shrieking across a short-range VHF frequency ends that illusion. It's coming, she screams. It saw us and it's coming back! Her voice is drowned by a tide of signal-jamming static, and Kelly sees a target on the radar screen: A ship is coming for them. Thus begins an unforgettable cat-and-mouse game across stormy polar seas and dire landfalls. Kelly's pursuers will test her to the limits of her endurance--and beyond. For the ship in her wake is crewed by pirates, with a young leader trained to use the most sadistic tortures in pursuit of his ultimate objective . . . a goal as shocking as it is horrific.Advance praise for Close Reach "Set on the icy polar seas, bristling with suspense, Jonathan Moore's Close Reach is as horrifying and claustrophobic as any haunted house story. The plot pitches and yaws with twist after twist, and by midpoint the reader is a goner. Leave the lights on, lock the doors, feed the cats, this is an irresistible page-turner of the first order. Highly recommended!"--Jay Bonansinga, New York Times bestselling co-author of The Walking Dead: Fall of the Governor, Part Two and author of The Sinking of the Eastland"Readers will need their sea legs for this hugely enjoyable, roller-coaster voyage of a novel. Close Reach is a brutal tale of redemption and revenge with a heroine to root for at every shocking twist and turn. Jonathan Moore's writing is as rich as it is raw and thrilling--and storms along at a breakneck pace that will leave you gasping for air."--Frazer Lee, Bram Stoker Award-nominated author of The Lamplighters, Panic Button, and The Jack in the Green
