Genre: Post-Apocalyptic Murder Mystery
In 2024, a mystery virus ravages the entire world. ‘Bat Fever’ is highly contagious and a hundred per cent lethal.
A cottage tucked away in an isolated Norfolk village seems like the ideal place to sit out a catastrophic pandemic, but some residents of Hincham resent the arrival of Jack and his friends, while others want to know too much about them.
What they don’t know is that beneath their cottage is a fully-stocked, luxury survival bunker. A post-apocalyptic ‘des res’.
The village isolates itself from the rest of the country, but the deaths continue―and not from the virus. There’s a killer on the loose, but is it a member of the much depleted community, or someone from outside? As the body count rises, paranoia sets in; friend suspects friend, and everyone suspects the newcomers.
Most terrifying of all is that no one knows who’s next on the list…
I am a fan of Terry Tyler, so when I had the opportunity to read The Visitor, I didn’t think twice. Of course, this is a post-apocalyptic novel that I decided to read in the middle of a global pandemic, which was an interesting thrill ride! Maybe I just like scaring myself, but I loved this book.
The Visitor is a standalone, murder mystery, set in a post-apocalyptic world. Terry Tyler is an incredible writer. She has this ability to draw the reader in as part of the story. It was so easy for me to visualize what was happening.
I love the multi points of views. Each character brings in a different view point. I love how different each character was and how relatable and realistic they were. It is part of what makes The Visitor feel so plausible.
I loved this book so much. I highly recommend going to get yourself a copy. Ominous, creepy, and entertaining, The Visitor is another hit by Terry Tyler!
