Gjerta Jørgensen patrols the frozen coastline of Greenland. She is the first woman to do so as part of Slædepatruljen Sirius, an elite dogsled team pushed to the limits of physical survival, risking hunger, exhaustion, frostbite and attack. But out here, where beautiful frozen desolation shows you little but snow, ice, and darkness, there is more to fear than this. She can hear it within the wind. It waits beneath the snow.
With only Søren Olsen and a dozen dogs for company, Gjerta must face these dangers and the darkness that hides in her past. Or else succumb to the cold and all it brings to haunt her.
‘Within the Wind, Beneath the Snow’ comes with the bonus material of several additional stories, stocking fillers at Christmas time, to see the winter in with extra chills…
Praise for Within the Wind Beneath The Snow
“Compellingly atmospheric, it draws you into its world of terror with a skill that, in my opinion, puts Cluley up with the best writers of weird fiction we have at the moment.” (Stephen Volk)
“All the best winter tales are as eerie as they are beautiful, as cruel as they are comforting. In ‘Within the Wind, Beneath the Snow’, Ray Cluley has written a hauntingly memorable winter tale about love and loss and longing. And the darkteeth inside all of our souls.”
“A quiet horror set deep within the isolated icy coast of Greenland where the real horrors are left off the page. ‘Within the Wind, Beneath the Snow’ once again proves just how versatile Cluley is as a writer. Echoing Cormac McCarthy’s The Road, this will continue to play on your mind long after reading.”
