"Does fiction get much darker than the sun going out forever? Not in my book--or Savile's either In this atmospheric little dystopia the sun is dimming, weather is changing, and regular people are getting weirder as time goes on....Savile lavishes attention on words to excellent, sense-heavy effect; New York is a 'beaten city' with 'weeping bricks.' Deliberate and creepy, this taps into genuine human traits like fear, greed, and stupidity."
--"Library Journal"'s Books for Dudes column
"This fast-paced speculative thriller delves into the machinations of a sinister secret organization."

--Fresh Fiction
Dogs howl in the streets, running wild. Birds fall dead from the sky. Even the sun itself is failing. As darkness descends all hell breaks loose and terrorists strike hard and fast, taking out the army base at Fort Hamilton, Brooklyn, leaving Manhattan vulnerable.
Jake Carter is an NYC subway electrician and former Special Forces operative. When he finds two young men spraying graffiti across the subway station walls, he realizes their marks aren't gang tags or band names: they are a message, a call to arms spelled out in a lost language. The Hidden are communicating with each other. The end of the world has arrived, and it's being orchestrated by those unseen--for profit.
Carter finds himself dragged into a world of conspiracy and menace by a woman he hasn't spoken to in over a decade: Sandra Keane, his ex-girlfriend, is one of the few who knows what s going on. She has just turned against her paymasters, and now she's running for her life with nowhere left to hide. With Sandra, Carter must answer some impossible questions: How do you fight an enemy you cannot see? How do you defeat ghosts? How do you stop some of the richest and most powerful men in the world when they own the shadows? And most important of all, how do you stay alive when the world around you is dying?

In this scary conspiracy thriller from British Fantasy Awardwinner Savile (London Macabre), entire cities lose power, birds fall from the air in massive numbers, and dogs go feral and turn Manhattan into Dogland. Ex-soldier Jacob Carter doesnt have a clue whats behind the chaos, but he follows an armed man into a deserted New York Stock Exchange in time to witness bizarre electronic tampering and murder. From Paris, Sophie Keane, a former comrade of Jacobs and one of the few who does know whats happening, leaves Jacob a puzzling message before heading to London. A mysterious group known as the Watchers (aka the Hidden) is pulling the strings behind a carefully and ruthlessly orchestrated series of calamities, and Sophie and Jacob try to cut them. The plot, which includes people bearing ancient Mayan names and a fantastic archeological discovery, may be too over-the-top for some, but others will appreciate what amounts to a clever, if uneven, sociological screed. (Nov.)
