Sinema: The Northumberland Massacre

A winter’s tale with a sting.

There’s a newcomer to the small Northumberland village of Haydon … a charming novelist and film buff, researching a crime thriller about a serial killer on a rampage in a remote Northumberland community. The only trouble is, it’s a work in progress and it’s going to be non-fiction.

392 innocent men, women and children stand in his way to achieving a sadistic dream.

As the worst winter in more than a century approaches, can two investigating police officers trapped with the terrorised residents stop this monster?

Han Whitman’s twisted journey continues in what will be an explosive finale.

After the Northumberland massacre, Han Whitman has returned to his normal life. But the carnage in Haydon has changed him. He is a haunted man, jaded by those bloody events. That is, until he realises that his original experiment is incomplete. The experiment must continue, but along a different path.

One survivor of Haydon teams up with the son of one of Han’s victims to hunt Whitman down.

As Han continues his experiment, wading into tides of human filth, and finding love in the most surprising of places, in the shadows someone else is watching the proceedings with keen, calculating interest.

The detective assigned to the vigilante killings becomes steadily more disillusioned until a chance coincidence leads her onto the killer’s trail.

The lives of these five individuals will collide with devastating consequences in the dramatic continuation of the Sinema story.

The King of America: Epic Edition

“A lyrical, futuristic epic. Rod takes traditional themes of betrayal and conflict and lets them loose in a vengeful, modernistic society engulfed in war.” ~ Borders Books

“A tense fusion of betrayal, honour and conflicting loyalties. A powerful page-turner with conspiracy, death, passion and remorse.” ~ North East Portal

“There are two kinds of science-fiction – novels written for, and by, physics students and stories that use allegory, wit and fancy to stretch the reader’s imaginations beyond breaking point. Rod Glenn’s lyrical futurist-epic falls, squarely, into the latter category. A major achievement.” ~ BBC Newcastle, Keith Topping
