Featured: The Visitor by Terry Tyler
There’s a killer on the loose, but is it a member of the much-depleted community, or somebody from outside? And no one knows who’s next to die.
In 2024, a mystery virus ravages the entire world. ‘Bat Fever’ is highly contagious and one 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, Sarah, and their friends, while others want to know too much about them.
What the villagers don’t know is that beneath Sarah’s cottage is a fully-stocked, luxury survival bunker. A post-apocalyptic ‘des res’.
Hincham 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 somebody from outside?
Paranoia is rife, as friend suspects friend, and everybody suspects the newcomers.
Most terrifying of all is that nobody knows who’s next on the list.
The Visitor is Terry Tyler’s twenty-second Amazon publication and is set in the same world as her Project Renova series while being a completely separate, stand-alone novel.

Review by Lizzy:
2024: The apocalypse is here and people are dying from bat fever – a plague from which no one survives. That should be bad enough, but in an isolated town called Hincham, people are being murdered.
In the eyes of those remaining (for the time being), the killer could be any one of them in the small, but rapidly diminishing community … or maybe not.
For me, what made this story so interesting, was that there were no police to be called, no clues to send off to the labs, and none of the usual tools the world has for solving murders. The Visitor, who also has another name we do not know, is part of the group being murdered, (by different methods), and there wasn’t one person safe from suspicion.
The Visitor who narrates throughout the book, is most chilling, especially as the character is not the typical sociopath.
Who is it?
Who could it be?
Such an important question.
The entire mystery comes together in a very clever way. The author understands and captures the mindset of flawed human beings from many angles. The thought process of the killer … and the others, is quite fascinating indeed.
And yes, in these troubling times, this story is even more terrifying.
