It all happened so quickly. First, animals became infected with the virus and their meat became poisonous. Then governments initiated the Transition.

Now, 'special meat' - human meat - is legal. Marcos is in the business of slaughtering humans - only no one calls them that. He works with numbers, consignments, processing.

One day, he's given a gift to seal a deal: a specimen of the finest quality. He leaves her in his barn, tied up, a problem to be disposed of later. But she haunts Marcos. Her trembling body, and watchful gaze, seem to understand. And soon, he becomes tortured by what has been lost - and what might still be saved.

MEDIA REVIEWS

“Cuts to the bone...”

As you may well imagine, this book is intensely disturbing and grisly – how could it not be? Underneath the horror lies a furiously powerful, intelligent examination of human behaviour within societal constructs; how... More

“Shocking!”

Thanks to the Pushkin for sending me a review copy of this one. The striking cover suggests a great deal of horror within and that's certainly the case. The book follows the life of Marcos who lives in Argentina... More

“A dark and twisted tale”

Not for the faint of heart this story is powerful and kept me up until the early hours. I had to skim read some of the more brutal descriptions of how humans were treated as they were so vivid.
