Back cover copy

Enter the mind of a serial killer who believes he is the rightful son and heir to an ancient dynasty of flesh-eaters. Follow the frantic journey of a mother whose daughter is infected with the stuff of nightmare. Look through the eyes of Bo Mulvey, who possesses the ancient wisdom a bloodthirsty evil needs to achieve its full and horrifying potential. A man upon whom the fate of the entire human race depends. One of the most powerful horror novels of our time, THE UNBLEMISHED is an epic tale of history and destiny, desperation and desire, atrocity and atonement. It is a savagely beautiful tale of a mother's determination to rescue her daughter, which plunges you into the monstrous world of serial killers and a cannibalistic apocalypse that rips through modern Britain. Praise for The Unblemished: "Williams is so good at what he does that he probably shouldn't be allowed to do it any more, for the sake of everyone's sanity." Publishers Weekly (starred review) "A roller-coaster ride through ancient buried secrets and body-horror invasion into the pulsing gut of apocalyptic British horror." Christopher Fowler, author of Ten-Second Staircaseshow more
