"Reads as if it were written by a highly agitated, very pent up, Stephen King, in a dark, foul mood." American Review

"This riveting and brutal crime thriller kept me on the edge of my seat right from the start with its apocalyptic cataclysm, cannibalistic serial killer, compelling characters and glimmering of paranormal atonement. Dramatic and intense, the story moves along at a brisk pace with a series of chilling developments, intertwining the lives of a divergent assembly in one small town. An implied connection to Jack the Ripper and a gruesome (and thought provoking) reaction to a mosquito bite lend a horrific element to a plot that fuses people of different backgrounds, tragedies and motive to clamor for survival. A terrifying climactic ending with an unforeseen twist evokes a story with all the elements of a great thriller! I couldn't put it down!!" American Review

Amid the chaos, Wolfe, a six-foot-ten-inches tall cannibal escapes custody. Seemingly unstoppable, he leaves a trail of death and destruction as he heads for a sleepy town in the English countryside. Meanwhile, a lonely figure wracked with guilt haunts the scene of a childhood accident, while in the village of Churchend; retired hypnotherapist Michael Anderson suffers an extreme reaction to a mosquito bite. The resulting delirium and soul searching convince him his life is about to change – but first, he must fight to stay alive.

A rich and varied cast of characters is portrayed in this gripping thriller. Filled with action, suspense and moving drama, you’ll root for the heroes of this roller-coaster ride of a story.
