This is a powerful, visceral great big bundle of tension. Humanity has been largely eradicated by a plague, and only a very few survivors are left. John Suter is one, thinking himself alone until he discovers a body that has been clearly murdered. He goes to investigate, and is caught in between a peaceful village brigands who terrorise them.
On paper, almost like a literary, British version of Mad Max.
I actually did think that the theology and some descriptions were perhaps over done, but Richard Herley absolutely nails the mind of the survivor, creating a thoroughly believable character, and the building tension and violence are perfectly done.

Completely addictive readingReviewed in the United Kingdom on 24 July 2017
a short story hiding in a novelReviewed in the United Kingdom on 11 January 2014
There is quite a good post apocalypse chase/revenge short story or novella in here. As a result there is padding comprised of religious twaddle, a constant referencing to sodomy and too many attempts to use vocabulary out of context. Puissant might work once but not on every other page. Like a lot of e-books it really needs a good editor.
Quite grisly but very well writtenReviewed in the United Kingdom on 11 March 2012
Like Richard's other books this one is pretty grisly and not what you would call a 'pleasant' read but I could not put this book down (although I have to admit I skipped the in-depth bits about Satanism). The story is gripping from start to finish albeit with a bit of a rushed ending. Looking forward to my next Richard Herley book!

Through the scribblings and religious babblings,there might be a decent story here.however, it goes on and on about this and that, and was quite boring at times.
