The Package, published today in hardback and ebook, is, according to HoZ, 'a terrifying and twisted psychological thriller centred on the character of Emma, the only survivor of a killer known in the tabloids as 'the hairdresser' – because of the trophies he takes from his victims. Or so she thinks.'
