Head of Zeus are excited to be offering 5 proof copies of The Night of the Flood by Zoe Somerville to 5 reading groups.
The Night of the Flood is an atmospheric literary thriller set during the devastating North Sea flood, in which a love triangle turns murderous. The perfect novel for groups to read and discuss.
No-one could have foreseen the changes the summer of 1952 would bring. Cramming for her final exams on her family’s farm on the Norfolk coast, Verity Frost feels trapped between past and present: the devotion of her childhood friend Arthur, just returned from National Service, and her strange new desire to escape.
When Verity meets Jack, a charismatic American pilot, he seems to offer the glamour and adventure she so craves, and Arthur becomes determined to uncover the dirt beneath his rival’s glossy sheen.
As summer turns to winter, a devastating storm hits the coast, flooding the land and altering everything in its path. In this new, watery landscape, Verity’s tangled web of secrets, lies and passion will bring about a crime that will change all their lives forever.
