"To get a feel for The Loop, imagine if the TV series Stranger Things lost its sense of humour. "

High school student Lucy Henderson and her friend Bakhit “Bucket” Marwani are getting the hell out of Turner Falls, a picture-postcard ski town in Oregon. The first disturbing thing was the Brower Butte boys kicking kittens into trees. Then it was Chris Carmichael trying to blind a fellow pupil in maths class. Then a party in East Bear caves that turned seriously satanic. Then the entire town has exploded in crazy, gut-wrenching violence... Has a sinister corporation beamed plot information into the author’s writing hand in a desperate effort to prevent him from writing an engaging story?
