Bush pilot and family man Tom Stokes is about to face the worst day of his life. On a clear winter morning he sets out in his Cessna 180 to do some repairs on a remote hunt camp, leaving his five year old son and very pregnant wife snug in their beds.

On the return trip, a squall forces him into an emergency landing and he winds up—quite literally—in the lap of petty criminal Dale Knight. Dale, now a fugitive from the law—and worse, from a merciless drug lord who just happens to be his brother—draws Tom into a web of mayhem and treachery that puts not only his life at risk, but the lives of his wife, son…and unborn child.

SQUALL is a fast-paced, darkly-comic tale of murder and gang-style retribution that grabs the reader on page one and simply does not let go.


“Costello…keeps the action moving and the suspense ratcheted up tight.”
    —Margaret Cannon, The Globe and Mail

“The best horror novel I’ve read since Stephen King’s own Pet Sematary. …Costello knows how to tantalize his readers, priming them for the horrors to come…”
       —Rave Reviews

“A wonderful blend of horror, psychology and the power of suggestion that leaves you guessing right up to the very end!”
      —The New Jersey Grapevine

“Sean Costello is one of the horror genre’s brightest new stars, and…Captain Quad will only enhance his position.”
       —Other Realms

    From ColleenR
    Squall kept me entertained from the very first page to the last. There were lots of twists and turns and I was truly surprised at one point and laughing at the next. Very enjoyable!
  • Easy read

    From Scypio
    Easy read for a holiday. The book is action packed to the level that it becomes too much, too fast and too unreal. Couple of scenese that were stretched to the point they become silly. Overall a relaxing read, but nothing more.

    From KirkeyKM
    Very good. I could see this being made into a movie. I especially like all of the northern Ontario references. Another winner Sean.

    From Fmacra
    Really enjoyed the fast pace. Everything pertaining to aviation was accurate. Is the author a pilot? If not, he had good advice. I will certainly read his other books. Merci…c’est agréable de lire un auteur canadien.

    From Eyenail12
    A fast paced thriller with realistic characters. A good number of plot twist and turns which lurch the reader from page to page . Somewhat of a blood letter but toned down by its humorous ironies... I really enjoyed the iBook read Thanks

    From AstaSollilja
    Thoroughly enjoyed Squall! Interesting story and unexpectedly funny. I found myself laughing out loud a couple of times and a big grin on my face as I pictured the scenes in my mind. One of the more fun reads I've had in awhile.
