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

About the Author

Sean Costello is the author of eight novels and six screenplays, two of which are currently under option to film. Depending on the whims of his muse, Costello's novels alternate between two distinct genres: Horror and Thriller. His horror novels have drawn comparisons to the works of Stephen King, and his thrillers to those of Elmore Leonard. In the real world he's an anesthesiologist, but, if asked, he'd tell you he'd much rather be writing. Recently, all of his titles have been made available as ebooks, wherever ebooks are sold. Sean is currently hard at work on several new writing projects.

Twists, Turns, and Action! I really looked forward to reading Squall because it was the first book I read of Mr. Costello's.  Right out of the gate, the story took off in a cRaZy direction and kept me in suspense to the very end!  Nothing was typical or expected in this book and I thoroughly enjoyed it.  It is a great read for a lazy Sunday morning with a hot cup 'o Joe.  I promptly bought the other six eBooks Mr. Costello wrote and look forward to reading them too.  BTW, Squall would be a fab action movie--it happens in a 24-hour period!

A very good read with interesting, suspenseful plot. The only thing I didn't like was that it is too short!

As with Costello's other books, easy fun read. Fast paced and predictable. Characters need to be developed more but fun.

Short and sweet. A good amount of the story is predictable, but it's still a fun ride. Loses a star from me because there were two places with glaring typos that really irked me. I would definitely read more from this author.

Masterfully written to captivate from the first page. Costello crafts this story with fully dimensional characters and just the right cadence of excitement. A riveting short read from start to finish.

Good story line but did not enjoy the language. Could possibly make a squeal because the story just ended in a place where another could pick up. Enjoyed the fact the mother was not weak.

Squall is my first book by Sean Costello. Whew, what a twisted story. Mr. Costello has delivered a well-written book. The characters in this story are phenomenal. There is plenty of action, suspense and drama to keep readers on the edge of their seats. I enjoyed this book and would be happy to read more from Sean Costello in the future. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.
