'48

The unmissable new action-thriller from one of the biggest names in British fiction -- the No 1 bestselling author of The Ghosts of Sleath, Haunted, The Magic Cottage and The Rats. As millions of readers around the world will testify, James Herbert's ability to shock and enthral is matchless. Now, in '48, he has surpassed his own remarkable achievements to create an electrifying new novel of pure heart-stopping action and invention that will take readers to new levels of terror and excitement. In 1945, Hitler unleashes the Blood Death on Britain as his final act of vengeance. Hoke, an American pilot and one of a tiny minority with a rare blood group unaffected by the deadly disease, has survived alone among the debris and the dead of London for three years. Now, in 1948, a slow-dying group of Fascist Blackshirts believe their only hope is a transfusion of blood from one of Hoke's kind. Ever more desperate as their deaths approach, they're after his blood.

A fabulous journey through the mind of the master of dark imaginative fiction, Clive Barker. The nightmare had begun!. Boone knew that there was no place on this earth for him now; no happiness here, not even with Lori. He would let Hell claim him, let Death take him there. But Death itself seemed to shrink from Boone. No wonder, if he had indeed been the monster who had shattered, violated and shredded so many others' lives. And Decker had shown him the proof -- the hellish photographs where the last victims were forever stilled, splayed in the last obscene moment of their torture. Boone's only refuge now was Midian -- that awful, legendary place in which gathered the half-dead, the Nightbreed!

James Herbert - '48...good book...a little different to his other stuff tho.

Used to read James Herbert in my teens, Rats, The Dark etc. What's he like these days?

Could never stop reading his early stuff.

Think the last one I read of his was The Magic Cottage

Went away from horror to more magical sort of stuff.

I love Cabal (or Nightbreed as the film was called) and would advise anyone to try it. Also The Rats... wow. Great deals.

Read his early stuff to also the fluke, and the fog. Magic cottage was a bit strange too

Read a few of Jack Higgins stuff too including "the eagle has landed" great book. Don't know what his later stuff is like..

'48 is one of my favourite books, and i have most of herbert's books, i really enjoy them. Will defo re-read 48 now... Always thought it would make a decent film too

I thouhgt 48 was an old book? Good read if it's the one I remember

Read '48 back in 1997. Not his best for sure but not his worst either.

the book better than the film worth a read.:thumbsup:

I read '48 a few weeks ago, the story was enjoyable enough, but it was one of the worst written books i've ever read. It seems that he can't make a simile or the like without immediately explaining what it means. My first fiction book.

certainly not a new action-thriller
