William Giraladi's haunting thriller Hold the Dark - published by Harpenden-based crime imprint No Exit Press - has been adapted into an original Netflix movie.
The film stars Alex Skarsgård, Riley Keough, Jeffery Wright and James Badge Dale and is now available to view on the subscription service.
In Hold the Dark, wolves have come for the children of Keelut. Three children have been taken from this isolated Alaskan village, including the six-year-old son of Medora and Vernon Slone. Wolf expert Russell Core arrives in Keelut to investigate the killings and learns of the horrifying darkness at the heart of Medora.
When Vernon returns from a desert war to discover his boy dead and his wife missing, he begins a maniacal pursuit that cuts a bloody swathe across the frozen landscape. As Core attempts to rescue Medora from her husband’s vengeance, he comes face to face with a dark secret at the furthermost reaches of American soil.

It’s such a powerful story and one that deserves to reach a wider audience. It’s wonderful to see such a terrific production which is as tense, gripping and atmospheric as the original novel.”
