Product description

Review

This is a fascinating timeslip mystery. There's always a risk of imbalance with a past/present narrative, but Scarrow manages the division well, keeping up the suspense on both sides of the story. He's particularly good on the pioneers' struggle against the elements, and the atmosphere of distrust between the native Indian population and the travellers. (Laura Wilson THE GUARDIAN)

"October Skies is a real page turner. It offers a thought-provoking insight into religious fanatasicm and how human fear can destroy the very foundations of life as we know it. Will fascinate and terrify you in equal measure." (Julia Ogden PETERBOROUGH EVENING TELEGRAPH)

Scarrow brilliantly brings to life the mountains and the desperation of a battle to survive the onslaught of winter. The set-up of October Skies is excellent. (MATERIAL WITNESS)

"A change of pace, but not of quality, for the author of the near-future shocker Last Light. Well researched and written with much authoritative detail, October Skies sheds light on a compelling period of American history. This is a thoroughly gripping tale." (CRIME TIME)

Alex Scarrow, after only three books with very varied settings, has demonstrated he has the ability to write gripping, page-turning thrillers and is clearly a name to watch out for. (Mike Ripley CRIME FILE) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
