Operation Wormwood: The Reckoning
Book 2 of The Wormwood Duology
Sgt. Nicholas Myra is back with a vengeance, and he is out for blood. Years of investigating horrific crimes have become too much, and Myra’s PTSD is intense and out of control. He can’t unsee the images that race through his dreams. Now as he investigates the biggest case of his career, he is in a constant state of fight-or-flight.
The hunt continues for a serial killer who is targeting the most heinous of criminals, making them die a slow, painful death. Sgt. Myra partners with Dr. Luke Gillespie in a hunt for a killer targeting criminals who everyone wants dead. On the day of reckoning, everyone is called to account for their actions. Award-winning author Helen C. Escott, a former civilian member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, offers an exciting new voice in crime fiction and conducts a thorough investigation into why evil against the most vulnerable goes unpunished.
Operation Wormwood: The Reckoning is the explosive follow-up to the bestselling crime thriller Operation Wormwood, which was a 2019 Arthur Ellis Awards finalist for Best First Crime Novel.
“Yet another action-packed crime thriller from Helen C. Escott! Not since the Book of Revelation itself has so much theology, intrigue, and suspense been poured into one book.” — Rev. Robert Cooke, Rector, Parish of St. Mark’s Anglican Church, St. John’s
“A reckoning with a vengeance! Operation Wormwood: The Reckoning is a roller coaster ride with many twists and turns. It holds you from the start and forces you to sit until you turn the last page.” — R. A. “Bob” Morgan, Sgt. Ret. Royal Newfoundland Constabulary
Operation Wormwood: The Reckoning is the sequel that readers will love to hate! It's raw emotion is palpable and shocking yet will leave you hopeful in knowing that there are good people in the world fighting for humanity and justice. Hats off to Helen C. Escott on the conclusion to this crime thriller!-- Stephanie Collins - Fireside Collections --

I don’t think it is too much of a stretch to say that Helen C. Escott is Newfoundland’s premier crime-thriller author. Her novels such as Operation Vanished (2019, Flanker Press) and now the two Operation Wormwood books will cement her career as such. I highly recommend the reading of the two books in order, so if you haven’t read Operation Wormwood already, then you should do so before reading The Reckoning. Both books are well-written and contain enough plot lines to keep the reader thoroughly engaged. I know I was! Well done, Ms. Escott!-- James Fisher - Miramichi Reader --
AS a reader you love being able to pick up a book and have your favorite characters back in front of you. This book doe snot fail. It picks up right where the first book picked up and you see the full circle of this story with twists and turns right up tp the end. It is yet another piece of great work that you can not put down. I also love how it also ties in characters from the second book that will lead the reader straight in to the forth in this gripping series. There is not a line or chapter that is not needed in this book the writer makes every word count. A must read.-- Jenn, Goodreads May 2, 2022 (5/5 rating) --
