||The world-renowned bestselling author of Portent creates a contorted labyrinth of
terrifyingly human vampires, post-Nazism, and betrayal.
Blood sucking, plague-ridden fascists roam the dark, seething ruins of London. Their prey is the select few who have not fallen victim to the blood-tainting biological warfare dispensed in the final convulsive collapse of the Nazis. A lone hero and his companion dog skirt the corpses, smashed cars, and bitter memories while trying to stay one step ahead of their bloodless fate and complete their mission of obsession. When others who are also relentlessly pursued stumble onto the duo's path, their haunting odyssey takes them underground. Beneath the bowels of a broken city an explosive disaster and a deadly betrayal propel the powers of good into a cataclysmic clash with the forces of evil.
"Herbert has a brilliant descriptive sensibility and uses it to create unforgettable disaster scenes." Publishers Weekly
