Happy birthday to the STRANGERS

A spate of brutal murders occur in and around the small town of Thussock. The bodies of the dead – savagely mutilated, unspeakably defiled – are piling up with terrifying speed. There are no apparent motives and no obvious connections between the victims, but the killings only began when Scott Griffiths and his family arrived in Thussock…

Time flies. It’s a year today since STRANGERS was released, so I thought I’d give the book a little first anniversary love. It’s a novel I’m very proud of. I set out to write a quick and bloody horror story – the kind of pulpy tale I’ve always loved to read – and that’s exactly what I did. The book’s had some great reviews, but I think what I’ve been most pleased about is the reaction to the characters. I can’t recall ever writing about quite anyone like Scott Griffiths before. He’s an arrogant, misogynist prick, and your reactions to him have been great. You’ve found him as vile as I hoped you would!

STRANGERS is easily Moody’s best work to date, a dark, disturbing and visceral book that gives him a legitimate claim to the title of Britain’s Best Living Horror Author that was left vacant by James Herbert’s untimely death.” — This is Horror

“I can’t stress enough how utterly captivating STRANGERS is.  It’s addictive reading from start to finish.  And it proves once and for all that there’s a hell of a lot more to Moody than the end of the world.” —DLS Reviews

STRANGERS is available now from all the usual outlets. You can get hold of a signed copy of the paperback (along with a free ebook version and free UK delivery) for the bargain price of £7.50 as part of the Infected Books BLACK CHRISTMAS promotion.
