Description

"That rare unplug-the-phone, skip-all-meals, ignore-your-bedtime thriller". (Gillian Flynn). Detective Inspector Hazel Micallef is making her way towards retirement after keeping the peace in the sleepy town of Port Dundas for many years. But when a local woman is found murdered - her mouth gruesomely shaped into a silent cry - Hazel and her department are faced with their biggest case yet. They soon discover that this is not the first time a body has been found in this way, and it is unlikely to be the last. The Calling is soon to be a major film starring Susan Sarandon, Topher Grace and Donald Sutherland. "A stunning serial killer chiller - dark, surprising and utterly compelling". (Mo Hayder).show more

Review quote

"The Calling is that rare unplug-the-phone, skip-all-meals, ignore-your-bedtime thriller. It's twisty, sharp and very, very creepy-and Det. Hazel Micallef is a perfectly original charmer" GILLIAN FLYNN, author of GONE GIRL "The Calling had me from the first page and never let me go. I absolutely loved Hazel Micallef" KATE ATKINSON "You're in the hands of a master storyteller. The Calling is a stunner - dark, surprising and utterly compelling" MO HAYDER "The most enthralling, creepiest, grizzliest book I've read in years." CHELSEA CAIN, author of HEARTSICK "A wonderful, creepy, twisty novel. You'll want to devour it all in one sitting" PETER ROBINSONshow more
