JOE HILL The Fireman
The brightest flames start with a single spark. Harper is pregnant. Only the day she finds out is also the day she learns she has a terminal disease. Known as dragonscale, it’s sweeping the country in an epidemic which leaves people and infrastructure alike destroyed in its wake. And those people who contract it have an average life expectancy of four months. Harper needs longer. She’s determined to live for long enough to give birth to her child. Even if the path to her survival means tracking down one of this new burnt world’s most elusive men: the fireman . . . This exceptional new thriller from Joe Hill is essential reading for 2016 and perfect for fans of Justin Cronin’s The Passage. Praise for Horns: ‘A remarkable achievement’ Guardian ‘A dark, funny 21st century fairy tale – and a devilishly good one too’ SFX ‘Well-written, extremely dark and awfully gruesome’ Daily Mail Joe Hill is the bestselling author of Heart-Shaped Box, NOS4R2 and Horns, the latter of which was made into a major Hollywood movie starring Daniel Radcliffe.
