John Sinclair - Episode 6 - Gabriel Conroy - ebook
Opis

Dr. Boscombe and his team are about to make a historic discovery: Britain's only "vampire graveyard", an unmarked cemetery at the edge of a marsh in Yorkshire. It was here, 230 years ago, that the villagers buried the victims of the mysterious widow, Simona Grace. Boscombe has no idea of the terrors he is about to unleash... When the only surviving member of Boscombe's team is consigned to a madhouse in London, Detective Chief Inspector John Sinclair is sent to Yorkshire, to unveil the secrets of the "vampire graveyard". Sinclair works for Scotland Yard's Special Division, an elite unit that deals with extraordinary cases. He is a battle-hardened veteran of Afghanistan, a man haunted by the past. But what he encounters in Yorkshire is no ordinary evil. It is an infection, an intelligent virus that is about to devour our world... +++ "A hero so suave and dashing, he makes James Bond look like a grubby detective sergeant, a plot that reads like it came straight from the great vaults of Hammer, and enough action and derring do to keep even the most ardent pulp fan smiling with glee.[...] A tight, punchy read that heralds the start of a great new series of pulp horror. Highly recommended." Ginger Nuts of Horror -- "John Sinclair" is the relaunch of Europe's longest running horror series. Originally conceived in 1973 by Jason Dark and still going strong, the "John Sinclair" novellas are firmly rooted in the finest pulp traditions: true page turners with spine-tingling suspense, exquisite gore, and a dash of adventure. -- For fans of the dark visions of Stephen King, Clive Barker and the "X-Files" and the fast-paced action and globe-trotting excitement of James Bond. -- Gabriel Conroy was born in Los Angeles, California, in 1967. After high school, he joined the armed forces and was stationed in Germany for several years. He discovered his love for writing while traveling through Europe. When he returned to the States, he studied Journalism at Los Angeles City College and UCLA, and currently works as a freelance journalist, writer, and translator. Mr. Conroy is married and has a dog and a cat.

When I was fourteen years old, I snuck into my fathers study and broke open his gun cabinet. Thats where he kept his .270 Winchester. I took the rifle and put it in my duffel bag. Then I took the number 2 bus to St. Andrews Hospital, where my mother lay dying.

On many occasions, my father had taken me hunting in the Scottish highlands. And if there was one lesson that truly stuck with me, it was this: When a creature is dying when its in pain the compassionate thing to do is to put it out of its misery.

I remember it clearly, the deer my father shot. The bullet had gone through its left hind leg, and it was lying on its side, its chest rising and sinking, unsteadily, and obviously in agony. A pool of blood was spreading into the soft grass around it, and its brown eyes looked uncomprehendingly into the flint-grey sky above. My father raised his .450.
