The Night of The Mosquito:

August 10, 2014, England. 

An apocalyptic event strikes without warning, wiping out power and communications throughout the country. Against this backdrop, Wolfe, a six-foot-ten-inch tall psychiatric patient with links to Jack the Ripper, escapes custody. Leaving a trail of murder and chaos in his wake, he heads into the hills. 

Meanwhile, in the village of Churchend, retired hypnotherapist Michael Anderson suffers an extreme reaction to a mosquito bite. The resulting delirium and soul searching convince him his life is about to change – then he hears the bells at the disused church of St. Michael's ring out for the first time in years . . . 

A gripping thriller filled with action, suspense and moving drama, the story also conveys a powerful message. 

‘You’ll root for the heroes in this roller-coaster ride of a thriller!’
