‘One of today’s most accomplished crime writers’ Literary Review

It’s the summer solstice weekend, and 150,000 people descend on a farm in the northeast of England for an open-air music festival. At first, a spot of rain seems to be the only thing dampening the fun – until a mystery bug appears. Before long, the illness is spreading at an electrifying speed and seems resistant to all antibiotics.

Can journalist Zoe Meadows track the outbreak to its source, and will a cure be found before the disease becomes a pandemic?A heart-racing thriller, Resistance imagines a nightmare pandemic that seems only too credible in the wake of COVID-19. Number one bestseller and queen of crime Val McDermid has teamed up with illustrator Kathryn Briggs to create a masterful graphic novel. ‘A powerful, unique look at the benign origins of catastrophe’ Kirkus Reviews
