Publisher's Summary

Harold Pierce didn't mean to kill his baby brother all those years ago. He didn't intend to incinerate him in a fire but he did and he has spent most of his adult life in a psychiatric hospital because of that. Upon release he is given a job as a hospital porter but that job involves the burning of aborted foetuses and the memories of what happened to his brother begin to torment Harold.

In the small town where he lives the terror is mounting because of the escape from prison of psychopath Paul Harvey. Within days of his escape a horrifying series of murders begins but there is much worse to come. Pierce and Harvey, both disturbed and guarding terrible secrets, are about to unleash a terror beyond belief....

Loved it

Anyting about creepy little babies is right up my alley. Great story and definitely worth listening to. The narrator did an amazing job with his portrayals of the characters. Can't wait to read/listen to my next book by Shaun Hutson.

One of Shaun’s more disturbing books

I’ve read many Shaun Hutson books and I love his style of writing and story telling. This book has been the one that has disturbed me the most to date. I genuinely felt upset at what I was reading at some points which is an unfamiliar feeling for me, and is a tester to Shaun’s emotive writing. Absolutely addictive and disturbing from start to finish!

Disturbing But So Good

I'd forgotten how immersive, powerful and down right brilliant Shaun Hutson is. I started reading his books about 20yrs ago when my sister and I would swap eachothers books - hers James Herbert mine Shaun Hudson. This book had me from the start. Excellent characters in a truely disturbing story.

A True Horror Classic.

This was the first Hutson book I read, The book is that bad it is fantastic. . Plenty of graphic depections of gore and over the top violence.

This is no-nonsense in your face shock horror.

Not one of the best

Narrator didn't help this very slow moving horror. The story didn't really get moving until the last 2 hours by which time it was all too obvious. A shame as Erebus was fantastic
