Wayward Pines meets Twin Peaks in Jeremy Robert Johnson’s The Loop, a conspiracy thriller set in a sleepy, tourist town in the Pacific Northwest that also happens to house a biotech firm. When Turner Falls is ravaged by an inexplicable outbreak (causing the infected to devolve into violent fits of rage), a local group of misfits struggle to survive, and expose the corporate corruption that destroyed their home.
The Loop publishes in September 2020 with Gallery / Saga Press. Check out the cover below!
