(Published by Abaddon Books, 2009)
"McMahon sets his story against a horrifying backdrop of the dead returning from the grave. Humans still have the capacity for most evil but McMahon doesn’t pull any punches when describing the undead onslaught! Civilisation is crumbling and the nervous energy this generates in the characters drives the story along at a tremendous rate. It’s very easy to keep the pages turning here!
Even when the initial terror dies down, we are still left with a group of people struggling to survive and this creates pressures of its own which keeps things moving nicely."
