'Intricate and crisp, witty and solemn: a book with special and dangerous properties' Hilary Mantel on Rotherweird

'Baroque, Byzantine and beautiful - not to mention bold' - M.R. Carey on Rotherweird

WELCOME BACK TO ROTHERWEIRD

For four hundred years, the town of Rotherweird has stood alone, made independent from the rest of England to protect a deadly secret.

But someone is playing a very long game. An intricate plot, centuries in the making, is on the move.

Everything points to one objective - the resurrection of Rotherweird's dark Elizabethan past - and to one date: the Winter Equinox.

Wynter is coming . . .

M.R. CAREY, bestselling author of The Girl With All the Gifts
Andrew Caldecott is a QC specialising in media law; he has represented a wide variety of clients, from the BBC and the Guardian to supermodel Naomi Campbell. An occasional playwright, he turned his hand to fiction when, informed by his love of history, which he studied at New College, Oxford, he was seized by the notion of a city-state hiding a cataclysmic secret. Wyntertide continues the story started in Rotherweird.
