The Winter Men II
Into The Deep Dark
by Brit Griffin
Another thriller in Griffin's eco-catastrophic adventure series taking readers on a thrilling ride through a dystopic north, with a gang of strange characters fuelled by adrenalin and gut instincts. Johnny Slaught and his ragtag group of climate change refugees are just trying to survive in a north plunged into endless winter.
But Johnny's world is about to be rocked by the most ancient menace of all-human greed. The beast of winter is knocking at his door and has slicked back hair, a sheep-skin coat, and a pump action. Inspired by her Northern Ontario surroundings, Griffin has set her novel in to a future where lawlessness is the only constant in life.
