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.

'Haunting, elegiac, evocative and human' Christopher Brookmyre, author of Dead Girl Walking

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
