Another Place To Die

Another Place To Die: The Endtime Chronicles
New Edition finally available in print and kindle /Q & A with the authors
A New Edition of this classic pandemic novel is out. It has undergone a radical rethink

A city is gripped by fear as a lethal virus approaches from the East. No one knows how many are dying. People are scared of being thrown into quarantine. Best friends Kira and Liz once parted are scared they will never see each other again. Teen lovers, Chris and Rachel, prepare to escape to the islands, to wait it out. Kira hears rumours of people going from island to island burning and looting. Prophet Arnold's Church of Final Redemption promises salvation to all those who believe, but what kind of life awaits the survivors?

Review from the First Edition:  
'Beautiful, plausible, and sickeningly addictive, Another Place to Die will terrify you, thrill you, and make you petrified of anyone who comes near you...'
