    Messed up

    I am reading '48 by James Herbert. This is one twisted read. This book grabs you from the first page and starts with the messed up stuff. Check the back cover info.

    Welcome to '48, where the living envy the dead.....
    It's three years since the end of World War II, The Allies lost. So did the Nazis. The only winner was the Blood Death, a hideous plague hatched in Hitler's secret labs and sent across the Channel. Now, London is in ruins, roamed by packs of feral dogs and a few mysteriously immune AB-negative survivors. Among these is Hoke, an American lone fighting "slow dying" Blackshirts--scavengers led by a fascist named Hubble, who prey on the "AB-negs" for blood and body parts.

    To stay alive, Hoke and four other AB-negs--a Lady, a factory girl, and air-raid warden, and an escaped German POW--will band together to confront the Blackshirts...a perilous battle that will take them deep into the bowels of the Underground, where stairways are heaped with bones, gasoline-soaked rats become self-propelled firebombs, and the path to the future lies over the decomposing corpses of the past.

    "All praise to Herbert for his haunting vision" --Kirkus Reviews

    "Relentless action...takes off at a fierce pace and continues until the blood-soaked conclusion"--The Times(London)
