Best-selling author returns to the survival horror genre with a twisted tale of suburban terror
David Moody releases THE COST OF LIVING – the story of a man who’ll do whatever it takes to keep his family alive as the rest of the world is destroyed by a horrific disease, no matter what the cost.
Moody came to prominence with the AUTUMN series of novels (the first of which was adapted for the screen in a movie which starred Dexter Fletcher and the late David Carradine), and the HATER books, film rights to which were optioned by Guillermo del Toro and BREAKING BAD producer Mark Johnson.
Having sold hundreds of thousands of books worldwide and having had his novels translated into numerous languages, Moody has returned to his first love – zombies!
The world is dying. An epidemic is sweeping the globe, destroying everything it touches. Contact with even a single drop of contaminated blood or saliva is enough to transform even the healthiest people into hideous, germ-spewing creatures. They hunt out the uninfected in their tens of thousands, their sole purpose to continue spreading the infection.
"On a recently-built housing development on the outskirts of a large city, one man will stop at nothing to protect his family from the coming storm. Stuart has been one step ahead of the game from the beginning. His garage is stocked high with supplies, the doors and windows of his home fortified, weapons held ready in case of attack.
With each passing minute, there are more infected surrounding the house. With each passing minute, Stuart and his family have less food and water available. Some time very soon, the balance will shift.
But Stuart won’t stop give up on his family, no matter what the cost."
"THE COST of LIVING is character-driven zombie horror at its very best. No fan of the genre should be without it." —Wayne Simmons, author of Plastic Jesus and Flu
"He brings to mind old Brit horror writer James Herbert. And that is some recommendation"
THE COST OF LIVING is published by Infected Books and is available now from Amazon. For more about Moody, visit www.davidmoody.net, facebook.com/
