9780006476009: '48

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.

About the Author:

James Herbert is one of the most influential and widely imitated authors of our time. His previous novels are The Rats, The Fog, The Survivor, Fluke, The Spear, Lair, The Dark, The Jonah, Shrine, Moon, Domain, The Magic Cottage, Sepulchre, Haunted, Creed, Portent and The Ghosts of Sleath.

From AudioFile:

The year is 1948 in this "what-if" world in which only a handful of humans have survived a biological weapon let loose by Nazi Germany. But there is no peace among the survivors, a few of whom are immune to the "blood death," while the rest desperately seek a cure. All of this is only background for this well-crafted exercise in breathless sensationalism. The intensity and naturalness of William Dufris's colloquial first-person narration, plus the startling virtuosity of his character voices, almost add up to a one-man radio drama. Only music and sound effects are missing. An eleven-hour adrenaline rush isn't everyone's idea of fun, but this audiobook does what it does supremely well. J.N. An AudioFile Earphones Award winner.
