Synopsis: The sickening murders of two close friends, Imelda Hart and Mabel Bright, begin a terrifying and sinister journey into the strange happenings of a small English town where sleep can mean torture, extreme psychological torment, and ultimately death for millions of other people worldwide. To fall asleep means to be watched by those who have appeared from nowhere and who sleep when their work is done. The long, black, deathly cars patrol the streets now owned by this group of unknown, evil and crazy men called the Masters. On the streets their drones, powered by thoughts and callous orders, collect wandering spirits and still wide-awake souls for the nightmarish world they have created.

Min, Ritchie and their friends find themselves caught up in this seemingly unending hell. The Masters can take you when you are awake and also while you sleep, in a place where the real world and the imaginary one collide with devastating consequences.

The Masters and drones are symbols, symbols of something else deep within the subconscious mind, creating a strange scenario that just won't let anyone go – not today, tomorrow or at any time in the future, whether in this world or the next.

'As The Cold Wind Blows' is Mark Jones's first full-length novel. This horror and sci-fi writer, born in Wrexham, North Wales, has already published three short story collections, 'The Crooked Cross Collection' Volumes 1 and 2, and 'The Black Rose Collection', published by Authorhouse. His influences are Stephen King, Mary Shelley and Arthur Conan Doyle.
