Publisher's Summary

As tattoo artist Star begins to ink her first client on a spring Sunday morning, something goes horribly wrong with the world...
Belfast's hung-over lapse into a deeper sleep than normal, their sudden deaths causing an unholy mess of crashing cars, smouldering televisions and falling aircraft. In the chaotic aftermath a group of post-apocalyptic survivors search for purpose in a devastated city. Ageing DJ Sean Magee and shifty-eyed Barry Rogan find drunken solace in a hotel bar. Ex-IRA operative Mairead Burns and RIR soldier Roy Beggs form an uneasy alliance to rebuild community life. Elsewhere, a mysterious Preacher Man lures shivering survivors out of the shadows with a promise of redemption.
Choked by the smell of death, Ireland's remaining few begin the journey toward a new life, fear and desperation giving rise to new tensions and dark old habits. But a new threat creeps slowly out of life's wreckage...

Brief review

An apocalyptic tale. Full of gore zombies and the odd sexual reference. I would like to say I enjoyed it, but really, I could have spent my time more wisely. Not great
