Summary: James Herbert transcends the horror medium with '48, a blistering tale of post-World War II London overrun with fear and blood. Delivering not only terrifying imagery, but pulse-pounding action and historical adventure, it is destined to become a classic.It is a London Too Terrifying to Imagine. Already crippled by the relentless Nazi bombing, this once-beautiful city has been depopulated by a hideous blood plague unleashed in the final convulsive collapse of the German regime. Now, human vampires wander the rubble-strewn streets, desperately searching for the only thing that can cure them.But not all survivors have been afflicted, and Hoke -- a lone hero accompanied only by his trusty dog and bitter memories -- is relentlessly pursued for the clean blood that courses through his veins. Yet his flight soon takes on a different meaning as he saves two women and a former German soldier. Banding together, they flee into the city's underground tunnels where an unexpected betrayal that delivers them right into the hands of their deadly adversaries prompts Hoke to take a stand against these monsters once and for all."With '48, James Herbert delivers another triumphant thriller that blends two-fisted action with the supernatural". -- Douglas E.

Riassunto: The world-renowned bestselling author of Portent creates a contorted labyrinth of
terrifyingly human vampires, post-Nazism, and betrayal.
Blood sucking, plague-ridden fascists roam the dark, seething ruins of London. Their prey is the select few who have not fallen victim to the blood-tainting biological warfare dispensed in the final convulsive collapse of the Nazis. A lone hero and his companion dog skirt the corpses, smashed cars, and bitter memories while trying to stay one step ahead of their bloodless fate and complete their mission of obsession. When others who are also relentlessly pursued stumble onto the duo's path, their haunting odyssey takes them underground. Beneath the bowels of a broken city an explosive disaster and a deadly betrayal propel the powers of good into a cataclysmic clash with the forces of evil.
"Herbert has a brilliant descriptive sensibility and uses it to create unforgettable disaster scenes." Publishers Weekly
