Waterstones Says

Frighteningly prescient and chillingly credible, McDermid brings her customary storytelling fireworks to this graphic novel of contagious disease spiralling out of control, whilst Briggs delivers stunning artwork.

It's the summer solstice weekend, and 150,000 people descend on a farm in the northeast of England for an open-air music festival. At first, a spot of rain seems to be the only thing dampening the fun - until a mystery bug appears.

Before long, the illness is spreading at an electrifying speed and seems resistant to all antibiotics. Can journalist Zoe Meadows track the outbreak to its source, and will a cure be found before the disease becomes a pandemic?

A heart-racing thriller, Resistance imagines a nightmare pandemic that seems only too credible in the wake of COVID-19. Number one bestseller and queen of crime Val McDermid has teamed up with illustrator Kathryn Briggs to create a masterful graphic novel.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'A brilliant and timely story, told with McDermid's verve, style and passion. I couldn't stop turning the pages, even when I could barely take the tension. Wonderful.' - Denise Mina

'Writer McDermid and illustrator Briggs show a plague tearing through all aspects of modern life-personal, professional, political-leaving plenty of apocalyptic blame to go around . . . McDermid skillfully builds pathos for the individuals wrestling with their dire circumstances . . . Briggs composes fascinating pages and panels that have a mixed-media feel . . . A powerful, unique look at the benign origins of catastrophe.' - Kirkus Reviews

'No one can tell a story like she can' - Daily Express

'McDermid remains unrivalled... brilliant' - Observer

'One of today's most accomplished crime writers' - Literary Review

'The queen of crime is still at the top of her game' - Independent
