"Midsommar meets The Hills Have Eyes"
A group of British football supporters travel to a remote region of Scandinavia .to see their lower league team play in Europe for the first time in a generation.
Craig, a retired soldier grows increasingly wary of the situation around him, reminding him of his tours of duty in countries where he cannot speak the language and religious issues pervade everyday life.
A clash with locals in a small town leads to Craig and his mates being hunted in the primordial forests by the locals in a deadly game where there is...
“No Extra Time: Just Sudden Death”
Football means everything to three friends from a dead end British town who have now hit their mid forties. They have supported their under-performing home town team through the lean years. Now success has come their way - for the first time in a generation their team has qualified to play in a European football competition.
But when Dean receives a ban from all football games due to hooliganism, their plans to go to see this away game together seem doomed. Joe was planning to take his troubled son Ben to his first ever football match in an attempt to bond with the troubled teenager obsessed with a death metal music. Craig is struggling with PTSD after a difficult army career, and needs distraction from everyday life.
When Craig finds out that Dean is terminally ill, Craig hatches a plan to travel to northern Finland with his friends to watch their final away game together, come what may, avoiding Dean's travel ban.
Craig, his two friends and their sons travel to a quiet backwater at the very northern edge of Europe for the match.
Soon Craig realises he is in a simmering conflict zone, between Paganism and Christianity. Ben's favourite death metal group are from this remote and isolated town. What Ben took to be the theatrics of their music is actually the reality of this place in the far north. And what these Pagans worship is actually out there in the northern forests. Waiting in the darkness. In this game there is no extra time: just sudden death.
Emphatic and atmospheric captures the heart of fans and the darkness of experience.

Another great read from this author. Well paced and fascinating from beginning to end. The setting is atmospheric and the reader is drawn further in by the characters, which are well rounded. Definitely worth reading again and again to appreciate all the references and nuances.
