Hailed by STEPHEN KING as 'a brilliant, massive combination of history and supernatural horror'.

Now a chilling 10-part TV series from RIDLEY SCOTT on BBC2 and iPlayer

The most advanced scientific enterprise ever mounted, Sir John Franklin's 1845 expedition in search of the fabled North-West Passage had every expectation of triumph.

But for almost two years his ships HMS Terror and Erebus have been trapped in the Arctic ice. Supplies of fuel and food are running low. Scurvy, starvation and even madness beging to take their toll. And yet the real threat isn't from the constantly shifting, alien landscape, the flesh-numbing temperatures or being crushed by the unyielding, frozen ocean. No, the real threat is far more terrifying.

There is something out there in the frigid darkness. It stalks the ships and snatches men. It is a nameless thing. At once nowhere and everywhere, this terror has become the expedition's nemesis . . .
Readers are gripped by The Terror:
***** 'One of the best books I have ever read. I couldn't put it down!'
***** 'A tremendous weighty achievement in atmosphere and storytelling.'
***** 'So beautifully written and well researched. I can't praise this book highly enough.'
