This is a 'mosaic novel' set in the near-future, when a desperate and ever-more controlling UK government decides to restore a sense of national pride with a New Festival of Britain. However, controversial plans to build on the site of an old church in South London releases a centuries-old plague that turns its victims into fleshhungry ghouls whose bite or scratch passes the contagion on to others. Even worse, the virus may also have a supernatural origin with the power to revive the dead. Despite the attempts of the police, the military and those in power to understand and contain the infection commonly referred to as 'The Death', it soon sweeps across London, transforming everyone who comes into contact with it. Told through various disparate and overlapping eye-witness accounts and different forms of communication, a picture builds up of a world plunged into chaos - where the dead attack the living, and only one of them can be the ultimate victor.

Black Static Clever, gruesome, poignant and pacy ... creator and editor Stephen Jones marshals the talents of a score of noted genre authors, eliciting contributions that play to the strengths of each ... it's hard to avoid this book's clutches - much like the shambling corpses that fill its pages. Financial Times An innovative, collaborative venture. The Bookseller Compulsive reading. SFX Magazine Clever, gruesome, poignant and pacy. Financial Times
