Is a medieval death cult stalking Westhill College?
That’s the question facing school newspaper editor Colin Mitchell when a girl’s body is found ritualistically murdered in front of the arts building. A strange symbol found at the scene may connect the crime to a terrifying and mysterious ancient military religious order founded over a thousand years ago during the Crusades.
As he digs deeper into the mystery, Colin begins to uncover a trail of murder and corruption that extends far beyond his worst nightmares. As the bodies pile up, he’s going to need to use every last bit of his insider knowledge and investigative ability, because the police are starting to zero in on him as their prime suspect…and the killer is closer than he thinks.
Deadline is the first in a series of nerve-shredding thrillers from the award-winning and internationally bestselling author Craig McLay.
