Forsake the living. Forget the dead. Fear the children... The brand new chilling page-turner from the master of horror

A TERRIFYING BIRTH
A young woman is rushed to the hospital with stabbing pains in her stomach. The chief surgeon delivers a living child with the face of an angel and the body of a tentacled monster. The doctors are unanimous that the baby must die.

AN ESCAPE FROM THE DARK
Engineer Gemma is plunged into darkness in a tunnel beneath London. Before she escapes, a strange green light illuminates a cluster of ghostly figures. Gemma is certain they were children.

A SUPERNATURAL THREAT
DC Jerry Pardoe and DS Jamila Patel, of Tooting Police, have investigated the occult before – but nothing as strange and horrible as what they must confront in the city sewers. Down here in the dark, where the dead come back to life, witchcraft is the only force strong enough to save you...

'A true master of horror' James Herbert

'Masterton's new novel is promisingly chilling in its premise. There is something about creepy children that just adds a whole new level to a horror, and it sounds like Masterton is completely going to town with that here' Cultured Vultures

'The characters, plot and setting work together to create a believable and enthralling supernatural thriller which kept me turning the pages from the first chapter right through to the final page. If you're a fan of British horror novels I'd encourage you to give this a try. I loved it' SF Crowsnest
