In 1945 Hitler unleashes the Blood Death on Britain as his final act of vengeance. Only a handful of people with a rare blood group survive. Now in 1948 a small group of Fascist Blackshirts believe their only hope of survival is a blood transfusion from one of the survivors. From the author of THE MAGIC COTTAGE and PORTENT.

Review:

‘Break-neck pace… a story for those who like their plots exploding with excitement and fear, set against an apocalyptic backdrop. A perfect adrenalin-packed alternative to Booker Prize pretension.’
Daily Express

From the Back Cover:

The Blood Death held no patience, no pity. But those who died at once were the lucky ones – their horror was only transient. The really unfortunate victims took months, even years, to die, watching their bodies rot, feeling their minds corrupt… And then there were the survivors; people like me who had the blood group that kept us safe from the disease but made us targets for those who believed our blood could save them. For three years life was simple. I lived alone, spending my days on my self-appointed task, avoiding the fascist Blackshirts who wanted my blood for their dying leader. Then I met the others – and life got complicated all over again…

James Herbert's latest bestseller projects an alternative result to the Second World War and as his hero, Hoke, learns that life isn't just about surviving, the listener is swept into an action-filled adventure that sweeps to a breathtaking climax.
