The unmissable new action-thriller from one of the biggest names in British fiction – the No 1 bestselling author of The Ghosts of Sleath, Haunted, The Magic Cottage and The Rats.

As millions of readers around the world will testify, James Herbert’s ability to shock and enthral is matchless. Now, in ’48, he has surpassed his own remarkable achievements to create an electrifying new novel of pure heart-stopping action and invention that will take readers to new levels of terror and excitement.

In 1945, Hitler unleashes the Blood Death on Britain as his final act of vengeance. Hoke, an American pilot and one of a tiny minority with a rare blood group unaffected by the deadly disease, has survived alone among the debris and the dead of London for three years. Now, in 1948, a slow-dying group of Fascist Blackshirts believe their only hope is a transfusion of blood from one of Hoke’s kind. Ever more desperate as their deaths approach, they’re after his blood.

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.
