Perfect for fans of The Walking Dead and The Road: the stunning, terrifying, moving conclusion to The Walkin' Trilogy.

Is there a future for those already dead?

Rumours of the Drowned Woman are rife. Some say she can't be killed, not in the usual ways. She hunts down wanted men - but never collects on the bounty; they say she is looking for one man in particular. He killed her husband and stole her daughter.

There will be a reckoning.

An interesting read, and excellent at transporting you to the town of Barkley . . . Just the right amount of thrill and suspense, intertwined with complex religious sensibilities, moral values and amoral values. — Alexicon Reviews
A special book unlike anything I've read before . . . creating imaginative characters and new worlds that lead to speculation . . . Not only surprised me with its originality, but also had a lot more feeling than I expected. — Bibliosanctum on Your Brother's Blood
A really great read indeed. I was hooked from the beginning. — Book Geek Says on Your Brother's Blood
Towsey's writing is a joy - the reader can feel and empathise with Thomas' angst as he is hunted across inhospitable terrains with his young daughter. This will appeal to fans of both the zombie and classic Western genres. — British Fantasy Society on Your Brother's Blood
An exceptionally good Weird Western zombie novel . . . Your Brother's Blood is something special — Pornokitsch
If you enjoyed the deeper zombie tv series of the recent years such as "In the Flesh" and "The Returned", as well as books such as "Handling the Undead" by John Ajvide Lindqvist, you'll handsomely enjoy "Your Brother's Blood". As far as we're concerned, one of the contenders for the best novel of the year. — Upcoming4.me on Your Brother's Blood
A fascinating, emotionally enrapturing narrative . . . a tremendously memorable debut, and a striking start to what promises to be a bloody biblical trilogy. — Tor.com on Your Brother's Blood
The deft world-building and focus on small-scale human tragedy make for an absorbing alternative to World War Z-style epics. — SFX

Fall of Man in Wilmslow

David Lagercrantz

David Lagercrantz

June 8, 1954. Alan Turing, the visionary mathematician, is found dead at his home in sleepy Wilmslow, dispatched by a poisoned apple. Taking the case, Detective Constable Leonard Corell quickly learns Turing is a convicted homosexual. Confident it's a suicide, he is nonetheless confounded by official secrecy over Turing's war record. What is more, Turing's sexuality appears to be causing alarm among the intelligence services - could he have been blackmailed by Soviet spies? Stumbling across evidence of Turing's genius, and sensing an escape from a narrow life, Corell soon becomes captivated by Turing's brilliant and revolutionary work, and begins to dig deeper. But in the paranoid, febrile atmosphere of the Cold War, loose cannons cannot be tolerated. As his innocent curiosity fast takes him far out of his depth, Corell realises he has much to learn about the dangers of forbidden knowledge.

The Rocks

Peter Nichols
Authors:
Peter Nichols

Set on the island of Mallorca, The Rocks is a double love story told in reverse. Opening in 2005 with a dramatic event that seems to seal the mystery of two lives, the story moves backwards in time, unravelling over sixty years, amid the olive groves and bars, the boats and poolside parties, the lives and relationships of two intertwined families within an expat community of endearing and flawed characters. As one story is revealed, another, sweeter one, a love story of a couple from the younger generation, arises in the wake of their elder's failures. The Rocks is a darkly comic, bittersweet, finally heartbreaking novel, that slips back in time to reveal the shocking incident that marked and altered these lives for ever.(P)2015 WF Howes Ltd
