I'm delighted that readers in the UK can now obtain the paperback edition of my new release Pestilence' from no less than Tesco.com so it's now possible to order your weekly groceries and a copy of the book at the same time. Of course, you could just drop in and order the book, and forget the groceries...lol

medical team from the outside, but the bodies continue to pile up.
Someone, somewhere, perhaps within the community itself, knows the

will they too join the growing list of names that appear on the roll of

slowly reveal itself.
