Publisher Review

A compelling, if regularly dark and bloodily violent, story that's slick, easy to read and hard to put down... Powerful and satisfying' * Grimdark Magazine * 'A powerful dystopian novel' * Armadillo * The story is an eerie glance into a possible, post-pandemic future... The Key To Fear is an incredibly topical story with a desolate environment that differs to that of a post-apocalyptic science fiction world, but with a forceful reality that reflects our own current fears' * Armadillo Magazine * 'A perfectly timed novel that explains the truth and consequences around handing over your personal responsibility to the government' * SF Crowsnest *
