Simon Clark writes a lot like Richard Laymon. Anything they write is a great read!

One of the first Simon Clark books I ever read and started me on reading other Clark horrors. Very creepy and one that you don't want to put down. One of the best vampire-themed books I've ever read.

Simon Clark's rendition of the genre is one of THE best Vampire slants I have read. On to his next book on my list.

David Leppington left his birthtown, named after his family, when he was a young boy. Now he returns with a job offer and the hope to reconnect with his uncle George who tells him about ancient tales of their families and the shocking truth about a pact that was made once with the great North god Thor who in return for a favor asked for the Leppingtons' leader to lead an army of his in his war against Christianity.
According to his uncle the last Leppington is supposed to unleash and army of undead upon his return to town. The army, hidden and locked away in the tunnels under the town have been waiting for centuries, living from blood that came through the drains of a huge slaughterhouse.

Meeting Bernice, another guest in the Station Hotel, and Electra, its owner, the three have a dinner when a fourth person, the badly mannered, mean looking jack Black enters the game. The circle is closed and the group feels they are there for a purpose and have been many years ago.

History might or might not repeat itself.


Although I liked the books I've read by Clark so far, this one felt more like a badly influenced Stephen King novel. I didn't quite get the reference to the watching crow except I thought about Randall Flagg who appeared in numerous novels written by Stephen King.
All in all I didn't think there was any uniqueness in this novel. Too much inconsistencies, not enough action.

vampire like things live under the city streets in small town England, this book has stayed in my mind long after I finished reading it. A must read.

This was not as different as I wanted, but it was interesting enough for me to skim to the end to see what happened
