McCluskey rips the emotions from you


When Horror and Romance collide, the world will never be the same again.

Kevin is your normal, everyday kind of guy. An office worker in a multistory tower block in downtown London, he feels like his existence is being swallowed up by the monster metropolis where he lives and works. Ignored, lonely, and lovelorn, he’s desperate for a life, a reason to go on.
He has one in mind.
His coworker, Rachael.
She is everything that he has ever wanted.

Four thousand miles away, someone else has other ideas about everything they have ever wanted …
As hostilities between two superpowers escalate, a new weapon is created.
Agent Z is a super-weapon, capable of delivering a devastating blow to the enemy.
In the wrong hands, however, it can be something else entirely.

Love is a many splendored thing.
Humanity, however … that is fleeting!

Content Review

It’s a love story.
It’s a zombie story.
It’s a horror story of humanity at its best and worst.
Love. Hope. Humor. Terror. Horror. Hopelessness.
This book will pull you down and rip the emotions from you.

The building zombie story was not merely violent and graphic, though it was both of those things. The gruesome tragedy of the telling actually made me sad. I found myself gently shaking my head in despair during many of the Z sequences. McCluskey gets you right in the feels, as they say.

The love story is funny, sweet, and realistic, with relatable and interesting characters and a wonderfully entertaining sequence of events.

The character love story and background zombie story come together in this brilliant novel and pummel you with your own fears and feelings.

While I am not generally a zombie fan, one does not have to be to enjoy this stellar read. Highly recommended!

About the Author: D.E. McCluskey

Dave McCluskey is a writer of novels, graphic novels and comics. He currently lives in Liverpool with his daughter.

He began writing in 2011 and created his first comic called Interesting Tymes. An anthology of short horror stories written in rhyme for children and adults, introducing the world to Edward D’Ammage. This was quickly followed by Interesting Tymes x 2 and the spin off series called Edward D’Ammage Presents: The Wedding.

Dave then moved on to more adult related fiction, bringing out the one shot Wooden Heart, followed by the full graphic novel Doppelganger.

His current bibliography includes The Few, a zombie series, DeathDay Presents, a graphic novel comedy based in Hell, Three Days in the City, The Adventures of Mace Masoch and many more.

He has written and produced a full graphic novel for children. After spending a few years of attending comic conventions he grew tired of only seeing comics for adults and decided to do something about that. He then went on to write OLF, a graphic novel with a clever twist on an old Christmas tale.

Spurred on by this, he partnered up with Joe Matthews (funny monsters) and they produced a retelling of the classic Christmas tale of A Christmas Carol, re-writing the tale completely in rhyme.

Dave has now turned his sights onto writing novels and his debut novel The Twelve was released in 2017 to great reviews, and has just released his second novel, written in conjuction with Tony Bolland, entitled In The Mood… For Murder

He currently writes horrors, thrillers, childrens and YA books and refuses to be pigeon-holed…
