It's a normal day for Sunshine as she takes the seat at her desk as receptionist at the Lyden Times. The tragedy of a young nameless woman floods the newsroom. Her head and body covered in bloody gashes and fresh bruises. Sunshine forms an immediate interest and digs into her life. Soon their lives merge. What is their connection? What is their fate?

'Author Elle Klass creates a compelling story using tragedy, survival, guilt, repressed memories, visual triggers and storms to create a tale that encompasses so much more than you expect.'
'In the first book in The Ruthless Storm Trilogy, Klass's sinister tale is replete with a small but well-developed cast, many of whom function as foils to enhance the principal characters, Eilida and Sunshine. Of course, included in the mix are a tight handful of antagonists who throw all sorts of twists and turns into the plot.'
