Adam Whistler has it all, so why does he feel so empty? When he breaks his ankle on a Mediterranean holiday he impulsively ends his relationship, toppling himself into emotional free fall.

At a house party he meets—and beds—the lovely Morgan. But when he encounters her a few days later she has no memory of him and introduces herself as Leila. Leila has dissociative identity disorder, or multiple personalities.

People are being murdered and Leila fears that Morgan, the personality Adam first met, is the killer. He doesn’t believe that any part of her is capable of it, so he sets out to unravel the mystery of her past. Tumult is a stylish, contemporary psychological thriller in the vein of Alfred Hitchcock and Patricia Highsmith.

What People are Saying About This

Charlie Adlard

"Tumult is a cracking read. It kept me turning the pages and hurtled along at a great pace… I couldn’t put it down."

Sean Phillips

“Tumult is the coolest indie movie on paper. Oblique, funny and beautiful work from two future comic stars!“

Frank Quitely

“The story was tremendous, a real page-turner. And I loved Michael Kennedy’s artwork.”

Christian Ward

“[Tumult] reads like an art house thriller. An ode to cinema, it has shades of Jim Jamusch or a hipster Hitchcock, and some of the boldest, most original art I’ve seen in years”

Craig Thompson

“Incredible, inspiring, infinitely readable.”
