A compelling, high-quality historical thriller that reveals a part of WW1 history that is little known about.

An extraordinarily atmospheric and page-turning historical thriller.

In 1919, on the desolate battlefields of northern France, thousands of soldiers undertook the immense and dangerous task of gathering up the dead for mass burial.

Two Storm Wood follows the stories of three British people whose lives have been affected by war in very different ways- a young woman who boldly sets out to find out what happened to her fiance, who went missing in action; a soldier tasked with co-ordinating the retrieval of the dead; and a detective sent to investigate what appears to be a series of murders in the empty, devastated landscape.

Unmissable high-quality historical fiction of the best kind.

Reviews for Two Storm Wood: The most haunting historical thriller you will read in 2022

One of the most evocative thrillers I've ever read. The writing is superb - shades of Hollinghurst and Pat Barker combine in a taut, finely plotted mystery. The battlefield is almost a character in itself, and the presence of its dead disturbed me throughout. Be warned - this dark, intelligent story is very hard to put down. Haunting, cinematic, and utterly gripping. * D.B. John *
