“This is the first book I’ve read by this author and I was most impressed. A brilliant concept, great story and characters you genuinely care for. I suspect it won’t be too long before the name of Andrew Lee Taylor is sitting on the shelf alongside the likes of Stephen King, James Herbert and Shaun Hutson. One to keep an eye on as I embark on his next offering ‘Bedbugs’. Great to have some good, honest old-school horror to tuck into. Keep up the great work and I wish the author every success in the future!”

Could you kill a rat knowing its blood helps to heal the sick?

After reading the late James Herbert’s RATS stories growing up, I decided to write my own version.

In a World where humans need the blood of a rat to help heal the sick, chaos unfolds when a deadly virus wipes most of them out.
In the countryside town of Aaronsville, UK, a laboratory has been set up to breed the surviving rats.
But, a few years later, a change has happened within the rats.
They have grown wise to humans and don’t want to be caged anymore. They escape the laboratory.
At first, the local Police think they have been stolen because of how valuable they are, but, after a farmer and his wife are mutilated in the early hours, and another farmer’s dog is found dead, the police investigate the laboratory.
It soon comes to light that the tested rats are attacking everyone in sight, but why?
Now, the police need to decide whether to recapture the rats because of their uses or kill them, but the rats fear no one as they thirst for blood.


Packed with action, horror & suspense, this story will leave you squirming at the thought of a rat being inside your house, or even by your feet.
Not for the faint-hearted.
If you loved James Herbert’s RATS novels then this should be right up your street.
