This will be my last post of 2017, so I just wanted to wish everyone the very best for the holiday season. I hope you and your loved ones have a great time. I also wanted to take this opportunity to thank everyone who’s picked up the new book over the last couple of weeks. ONE OF US WILL BE DEAD BY MORNING has proved to be as polarising as I’d expected. Readers seem to have either really enjoyed it, or they’ve really, really hated it. That’s good! I’d hate for the book to have been met with a shrug of indifference. Here’s a round up of some recent reviews.
“Like the best crime fiction, the violence in One of Us Will Be Dead by Morning has emotional power. You feel it as a reader. You get to see all the physical and emotional scars the cast inflict and the ones they come to bear. When you add that to the book’s great cast, its exciting twists and turns, and the chilling mystery at hand, you’ve got one hell of a novel.” – www.criminalelement.com
“A near-perfect example of humanity fucking up as our last card is played.” – www.dlsreviews.com
“…there are times you want a slow, gentle gothic novel on a warm summer day, and then some days you want to rip and roar through a good, fast read. That’s David Moody for you.” – www.ghastlygrinning.com
“David Moody has a knack for making me feel like a fly on the wall, right there amongst the action but not noticed by the players. One of Us Will Be Dead by Morning brought me within a hair of the Haters and their violence, while I remained nothing but an observer.” – www.2bookloversreviews.com
“David Moody’s Hater series has proven itself worthy of the great post-apocalyptic horror stories and One of Us Will Be Dead by Morning is no slouch of a sequel/fresh start. Fear stems from isolation and rumor, only to be reinforced by quick and brutal violence. This is gut-wrenchingly realistic survival horror.” – horror-underground.com
“Think of a mashup of George Romero and Agatha Christie, and you might have an idea of what awaits you.” – www.20somethingreads.com
Nothing like a bit of grim survival horror to get you in the Christmas spirit, eh? If you want to get hold of the book, signed copies are available from www.infectedbooks.co.uk. It’s also available from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, The Book Depository, Indiebound and all other good bookstores. Ebook available from Amazon, Kobo, iBooks and other stockists. Audiobook by Macmillan Audio available from Audible, Amazon and iTunes.
Please come back early in the new year for news on the next book in the Final War series, ALL ROADS END HERE, and details of other 2018 releases. Until then, HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
