A Time of Torment

A Time of Torment

The Number One bestseller, now out in paperback.

Jerome Burnel was once a hero. He intervened to prevent multiple killings and in doing so damned himself. His life was torn apart. He was imprisoned, brutalized.

But in his final days, with the hunters circling, he tells his story to private detective Charlie Parker. He speaks of the girl who was marked for death but was saved, of the ones who tormented him, and an entity that hides in a ruined stockade.

Parker is not like other men. He died, and was reborn. He is ready to wage war.

Now he will descend upon a strange, isolated community called the Cut, and face down a force of men who rule by terror, intimidation, and murder.

All in the name of the being they serve.

All in the name of the Dead King.

Reviews

This is dry mouth time - superb entertainment, but very unsettling, too.
Fully Booked
An enthralling and unsettling story that is as horrific as it is mesmerising . . . scarily good and as dark as one expects it to be.
