Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

And whatever you do, don’t get in the car . . .

We did warn you. It’s a very good thing that the days are getting longer, because you’ll need all the daylight you can get to read this book. Next week we’ll be bringing you a very special extract read by Joe Hill himself.

See you then!
