Elizabeth Norris - Unraveling

Author Elizabeth Norris has outdone herself with her x-files inspired novel Unraveling. There’s a bomb counting down but no one knows where it came from, or how to stop it, and it’s a race against time for our characters to find out what’s happening.

To make matters worse, burned bodies are appearing around the country, and no one knows if the weather or bomb will tear the world apart first. And the best part about the book? The gritty language used by our main character Janelle. It’s not over down, and very real.
