Join us for an evening with C.J. Cooke as she talks about her new novel A Haunting in the Arctic,  a chilling thriller filled with secrets, ghosts, and Nordic folk tales.

Something has walked the floors of the Ormen for over a century. Something that craves revenge…

1901. On board the Ormen, a whaling ship battling through the unforgiving North Sea, Nicky Duthie awakes. Attacked and dragged there against her will, it’s just her and the crew – and they’re all owed something only she can give them.

1973. Decades later, when the ship is found still drifting across the ocean, it’s deserted. Just one body is left on board, his face and feet mutilated, his cabin locked from the inside. Everyone else has vanished.

Now, as urban explorer Dominique travels into the near-permanent darkness of the northernmost tip of Iceland, to the final resting place of the Ormen’s wreck, she’s determined to uncover the ship’s secrets.

But she’s not alone. Something is here with her. And it’s seeking revenge…

We were big fans of C.J. Cooke’s novel The Lighthouse Witches and look forward to welcoming her to Booka to celebrate the publication of A Haunting in the Arctic.
