The Final War begins tomorrow

ONE OF US WILL BE DEAD BY MORNING is released tomorrow, and I’ve just got time to pass on a couple of snippets of information I haven’t had chance to share before.

First, the second HATER trilogy now has a name. My editor and I racked our brains long and hard about what to call the new series, and we went through a number of options before settling on our final choice. Cast your minds back to THEM OR US, and you’ll be able to find the genesis for the title… there’s no going back for the human race after the events of the HATER books. The fighting will continue until there’s no one left, so there’s no question that this is THE FINAL WAR.

Second bit of news – the ONE OF US WILL BE DEAD BY MORNING audiobook is also out this week from Macmillan Audio. The excellent chap who narrated the previous HATER audiobooks, Gerard Doyle, is back behind the microphone. Here’s an excerpt to whet your appetite.

I’d like to close this little pre-release round-up with a few words on the new book from Chris Hall of DLS Reviews. Chris has been following my work for a long time and he writes some of the most well-considered reviews on the web. So you can imagine how pleased I was when he finished off his review of ONE OF US WILL BE DEAD BY MORNING with these comments:

This is Moody doing what he does best.  This is his natural environment.  His turf.  This is how he writes his very best work.  And it’s utterly, uncompromisingly, gut-wrenching stuff.  The novel rips you out of your safe and snug world and thrusts you into an environment where anyone can turn on you in the blink of an eye.  It’s hard-hitting, head-poundingly tense, and drenched from head to toe in blood-splattered cruelty.

A near-perfect example of humanity fucking up as our last card is played.

The book hits the shelves tomorrow. Don’t forget, signed copies are available exclusively from
