Harry Keogh is moving on. Though the search for his missing wife and child continues, his heart now lies in Edinburgh with Bonnie Jean - a beautiful Scottish werewolf whose friendly pack and flourishing pub have given him a place he can almost call home.
But from the rocky heights of Sicily, the diabolical Francezci brothers plot the wolf-pack's destruction; and down in the terrible Pit beneath Le Manse Madonie, an ancient evil schemes.
The vampires conspire. They reach a decision. They choose a vector. Mafia thug Mike Milazzo is no good to anyone, anytime, anywhere…which makes him perfect. Disposable.
The brothers infect him with a deadly poison - an engineered plague that even a werewolf could never survive - and they offer him a terrible bargain: successfully contaminate the wolf-pack, and receive the antidote. Fail, and die!
Mike has everything to lose. So does Harry Keogh. But the Necroscope lost everything once before, and he isn't about to do it again....

Anyone craving the necroscope will be seriously disappointed. This is not even a complete short story.
Disappointment. I'm a huge fan of the necroscope books and this little tidbit just makes me depressed.
Where are the rest of them? The vampire world trilogy now please! :-)

This is a nice re-visit to Lumley's world. I was happy to listen to it. It will not be much fun for people new to The Necroscope series. This is NOT Lumley's best work, and the narration is fast, I think rushed, perhaps for Radio. The novels are not available, they would be popular. I would love to hear them in audio format.
"good story but why the Irish accents?"
The story is good but unfortunately the narrator has trouble destinguishing between Scottish and Irish accents. It can be quite annoying at times.
I'm a Necroscope fan of old and was very happy to discover this book here! The narrator deserves an oscar - what a performance. He does the book justice.
"Good book bad reading"
A better recording.
The recording itself was good and clear and the narrator was good to a point, but it was when he started to do the voice for the characters that everything went astray the ancients did not match the parts of the country the creators are from and seemed a little out of time.It seems to me that the reader has used voice references from old recordings that do not match the characters making them seem older or younger than they should be or using old-fashioned accents that do not really exist anymore.The whole reading would have been much better if the reader had not tried to do the voice and regional accents and just stuck to reading the book in his own voice
The disappointment was bad, I was so exited to see a Necroscope book and the reading meant that I did not finish the book luckily I have the paperback so I already know the story.
The shame of it is that I love these books and the first one is my most favorite book ever.
