Author: M. R. Sellars
FOR THE PEOPLE OF HULIS, MISSOURI, THE CHRISTMAS HOLIDAYS ARE HELL…
On December 22nd, 1975, something unthinkable happened in the small, northern Midwest town of Hulis, Missouri—something so heinous that it turned the holidays into a waking nightmare.
Now, 35 years later, it’s happening all over again, and for those involved, Christmas will never be the same…
In The Bleak Midwinter marks the first full-length novel spin-off from the Rowan Gant Investigations series. Featuring FBI Special Agent Constance Mandalay, a recurring character from the RGI books, In The Bleak Midwinter explores a 35 year old case that has literally come back to haunt a small town in Northern Missouri.
“A superbly creepy supernatural thriller that sucks you in from the very first line and doesn’t let you go until long after you close the covers. IN THE BLEAK MIDWINTER reads like old-school M. Night Shyamalan with a dash of a John Connolly police procedural. Good stuff!”
— J. T. Ellison, Author of the Taylor Jackson novels
“IN THE BLEAK MIDWINTER is a well written mystery with a paranormal slant. The gruesome murders and child-abuse back story will keep the attention of any fan of dark fiction. It’s difficult to put down and will make a satisfying, spooky read on a cold night this coming holiday season.”
