A powerful and disturbing psychological thriller set in the wilderness of northern Canada.
Deep in the vast wilderness of the Yukon, Ross River seemed the perfect place for Miles McEwan to escape the past. Best of all, he could keep doing the job he loved - fighting fire.
But five years on, Miles is still troubled by phantoms of his previous life: the young man whose agonising death preys on his conscience, and the woman he abandoned as a consequence. And in the dark forest around Ross River violence is brewing. A small party, out to track bear, is about to encounter nature in its wildest and most ferocious guise. Elsewhere a killer is going about his work, quietly and ruthlessly.
As the survivors of the hunting party are picked off one by one and fire rages through the mountains, Miles embarks on a desperate rescue mission, driven by love for a daughter who, until this dangerous summer, had been a perfect stranger.
'The Wildfire Season' is a remarkable tour de force - an edgy psychological thriller, a supernatural chiller, a terrifying tale of untamed nature and a poignant love story.
