Publisher's Summary

Harold Pierce didn't mean to kill his baby brother all those years ago. He didn't intend to incinerate him in a fire but he did and he has spent most of his adult life in a psychiatric hospital because of that. Upon release he is given a job as a hospital porter but that job involves the burning of aborted foetuses and the memories of what happened to his brother begin to torment Harold.
In the small town where he lives the terror is mounting because of the escape from prison of psychopath Paul Harvey. Within days of his escape a horrifying series of murders begins but there is much worse to come. Pierce and Harvey, both disturbed and guarding terrible secrets, are about to unleash a terror beyond belief....
Shaun Hutson is one of the UK's best-known horror writers and author of over 50 books. He made his name with best-sellers such as Spawn and Relics - acquiring the nicknames 'The Godfather of Gore' and 'The Shakespeare of Gore' in the process - and has since written a number of dark urban thrillers as well. He has also written for radio, magazines, television and novelized a couple of Hammer Horror films.

One of Shaun’s more disturbing books

I’ve read many Shaun Hutson books and I love his style of writing and story telling. This book has been the one that has disturbed me the most to date. I genuinely felt upset at what I was reading at some points which is an unfamiliar feeling for me, and is a tester to Shaun’s emotive writing. Absolutely addictive and disturbing from start to finish!

Not one of the best

Narrator didn't help this very slow moving horror. The story didn't really get moving until the last 2 hours by which time it was all too obvious. A shame as Erebus was fantastic
