HUNGRY HEARTS

Released 15 November 2009

By Gary McMahon

IN A WORLD TORN APART BY HUNGER, THE ONLY THING COLDER THAN DEATH IS LOVE…

Rick Nutman is a rookie policeman. When the city of Leeds erupts into blood-spattered chaos he must fight through hungry hordes of the living dead to return home and protect Sally, his new wife, the only woman he has ever loved.

Daryl lives with his dying mother, and views the apocalypse as the perfect opportunity to put his long-held plans into action. Daryl has always wanted to be a serial killer. Tonight he will achieve that dream, and Sally will become his first victim.

As the world runs down and the streets burn with the rage of the undead, Rick flees with his reanimated wife across a ravaged landscape, and Daryl chases them with his own agenda – to be the only serial killer in history to kill the same victim twice.

Murder, obsession and desire collide in this dark tale of love and death… and the things that lie beyond.

When flash-floods devastate Britain and an army of the undead rise from the waves, three broken people – escaped sex-slave Katja, burned-out soldier McTarn, and crippled biologist Styles – may hold the key to survival for the scattered few remaining.

“If you are going somewhere hot, this will chill the spine nicely.” - The Telegraph

The Concrete Grove

Released 28 June 2011

By Gary McMahon

buy now UK|Us|eBook

There’s a worse horror lurking in the crumbling tower blocks of Britain than just feral gangs of hoodie-wearing teenagers, lone sharks and chavs.

Welcome to the Concrete Grove. It knows where you live...

In a serious, literary and thrilling work of true contemporary horror, Gary McMahon conjures up a very different kind of ‘Broken Britain’ – a horrific vision of dark urban streets where crime, debt and violence are not the only things to fear. A housing project has become a gateway to somewhere else, a realm where ghosts and monsters stir hungrily in the shadows.

Presented by one of the most exciting up-and-coming authors in British genre fiction today, this chilling new horror trilogy shows us a Britain many of us will recognise, while whispering of the terrible and arcane presences clawing against the boundaries of our reality.

Concrete Grove is easily Gary McMahon's most accomplished work to date. A compelling novel of extremes, it plots an exhilarating course through an unstable landscape of fragile love and blistering hate, of divinity and depravity, of the crushingly mundane and the numinously surreal.”
