Blurb for Great North Road
by Peter F. Hamilton:
A gripping new science fiction thriller from the New York Times bestselling author of The Evolutionary Void and many other epic science fiction novels. On an unexplored planet, a killer stalks a scientific expedition stranded thousands of miles from civilization. Is the killer one of their own, or has the alien species they are searching for found them first?
Thriller writer Ken Follett, author of Eye of the Needle and Pillars of the Earth, calls Peter F. Hamilton “the owner of the most powerful imagination in science fiction.” In Great North Road, Hamilton offers a thriller that combines futuristic speculation, a murder mystery, and a desperate race through wilderness for the safety of civilization as an expedition’s members get picked off one by one.

CATCHES THE READER UP: The first chapter of The Twelve cleverly recaps the events and characters of The Passage, so a reader will be freshly aware of exactly what happened and where things left off.
