* * *

Something has walked the floors of the Ormen for over a century.

Something that craves revenge…

*Longlisted for the Wilbur Smith Adventure Writing Prize*

1901. On board the Ormen, a whaling ship battling through the unforgiving North Sea, Nicky Duthie awakes. Attacked and dragged there against her will, it’s just her and the crew – and they’re all owed something only she can give them.

1973. Decades later, when the ship is found still drifting across the ocean, it’s deserted. Just one body is left on board, his face and feet mutilated, his cabin locked from the inside. Everyone else has vanished.

Now, as urban explorer Dominique travels into the near-permanent darkness of the northernmost tip of Iceland, to the final resting place of the Ormen’s wreck, she’s determined to uncover the ship’s secrets.

But she’s not alone. Something is here with her. And it’s seeking revenge…

MEDIA REVIEWS

‘An unnerving tale full of ghosts, selkies and plenty of mystery, which Cooke deploys not only to craft the novel’s frights but also to probe ideas of grief and retribution. The result is a story that is as haunting as the Ormen itself’ New York Times ‘A gothic tale rich in chilling folklore … an engrossing read’ Best ‘Eerie and atmospheric’ Good Housekeeping ‘A Haunting in the Arctic is a story of a woman haunted in every way. An eerie, atmospheric novel that is full of tension and suspense, this is a beautiful gothic chiller of a book’ Elizabeth Lee ‘Evocative and chilling, an addictive piece of polar gothic’ Anna Bailey ‘This beguiling, shocking feminist gothic mystery is perfect for dark-nights reading’ Heat ‘Gloriously gothic and hauntingly beautiful … guaranteed to send a shiver up your spine this October. Miss it at your peril’ Scots Magazine ‘This claustrophobic, cloying read with Gothic undertones was so eerie I wanted to sleep with the light on’ Prima ‘Right from the start, I was hooked on this eerie, cryptic novel’ Samantha Downing
