‘A gripping accomplishment.’ – Murder, Mayhem and More. Mankind has fallen to darkness and a new breed rules the earth. The age of the vampire has begun. Few survived the fall of man. Those who remain to witness the darkening of the world live by the gun or live in fear. There is no middle ground. The cities lay in ruin after the last war and vampires have inherited the blasted remnants. Some will not cower in the night. They fight because there is nothing left to them, and they fight without hope of peace or victory. In a war with no end, in a land without succour, what chance do the survivors have? The war was lost as soon as it was begun. But there is still the past…and perhaps, a future. And through it all, one man stands vigil. A novel of the apocalypse from the author of Masters of Blood and Bone, Rain, and The Estate.
A man walks the streets of Frampton. Some people see him, though most don’t. He’s just the street sweeper…but he’s a preacher, too, and he’s preaching death. People are dying to feed the dark apostle’s faithful. The townspeople and outsiders alike find themselves fighting for life against those who would do them harm in the name of the street sweeper’s dark god. Warren Johns, the last of a dying breed, stands against evil in all it’s forms. He may be the only one who can stop the Hangman and his apostle and he’s already too late. Stuck in the middle of a battle to save the townsfolk’s souls are a woman and a young boy, and they need to be anywhere else but in the way when the Hangman breaks free from Hell… Originally published as ‘The Noose and Gibbet’. Edited by Colin F. Barnes and Dave Thomas. Hangman is the first of The Land Between Midnight Trilogy, comprised of #1 Hangman, #2 Highwayman, and #3 Coachman (coming soon).
