About the Book:
Writer Richard Young is looking forward to a week at home with his wife and their little daughter. He thinks it's going to be a pleasant time of barbecues and lazy summer days.
Because the stranger who arrives at their home, begging to be driven to the nearest police station, is being hunted. Hunted by something that cannot be seen, cannot be heard — yet which has the power to move across the land and crushing flat everything in its path. Stalking — and killing — remorselessly.
Within minutes, Richard Young, his family, and the stranger are being pursued relentlessly — and running for their lives...
Simon Clark lives in Doncaster, England with his family. When his first novel, Nailed by the Heart, made it through the slush pile in 1994 he banked the advance and embarked upon his dream of becoming a full-time writer. His subsequent novels include Blood Crazy, Darkness Demands, Death's Dominion and The Night of the Triffids, which continues the story of Wyndham's classic The Day of the Triffids. His revival of the wickedly ambulatory Triffid plants won the British Fantasy Society's August Derleth Award for best novel. He also created and co-presented "Winter Chills" for the BBC TV. His latest book from Severn House is The Midnight Man, a story of ghosts, madness and murder that features Vincent Van Gogh during one of the most turbulent periods of his life in 1888. Simon also experiments in short film, one of which, "Dear Simon, Where Do You Get Your Ideas From?" has been featured in the UK's Channel 4 ShortDoc series, and earned the accolade "the ultimate in TV democracy."
