Magnus McFall was a comic on the brink of his big break when the world came to an end. Now, he is a man on the run and there is nothing to laugh about. Thrown into an unwilling partnership with an escaped convict, Magnus flees the desolation of London to make the long journey north, clinging to his hope that the sickness has not reached his family on their remote Scottish island. He finds himself in a landscape fraught with danger, fighting for his place in a world with its own justice, and new rules, where people, guns and food are currency… Where survival is everything.

Professional reviews

"The second instalment in the thrilling new Plague Times trilogy from the author of A Lovely Way to Burn. ‘The plot gallops along while the writing crackles with the sights and smells of a sharply imagined world […] this book, the second in Plague Trilogy left me hungry for volume three.’ INDEPDENDENT ‘By turns social satire, prison-break tale, road novel and study of a disintegrating cult, (an) adventurous, shape-shifting book.’ SUNDAY TIMES"
