John Sinclair - Episode 8 - Gabriel Conroy - ebook
Opis

They are as old as mankind. They feed in the shadows we've created. And they're about to step into the light... When young Cordelia Barnes dies of a drug overdose, her body is brought to Abbott & Sons, one of the oldest funeral parlors in South London. But Mr. Abbott is no ordinary man. He is a ghoul - a foul and ancient creature. He and his gruesome family live in darkness and feed on human flesh. Soon, DCI Sinclair is called to the scene, determined to wipe out the nest of ghouls. But Sinclair doesn't realize that his best friend is trapped under their lair, and that the ghouls are preparing a feast. The slaughter is about to begin... Detective Chief Inspector John Sinclair works for Scotland Yard's Special Division, an elite unit that deals with extraordinary cases. DCI Sinclair is a battle-hardened veteran of Afghanistan, a man who's been to hell and back. This time, he's not just fighting to save our world. He's fighting for his soul... "John Sinclair" is the reboot of Europe's longest running horror series. Originally conceived in 1973 and still running strong, the "John Sinclair" novellas are firmly rooted in the finest pulp tradition, true page turners with hair-rising tension, exquisite gore, and a dash of adventure. "John Sinclair" combines the dark visions of Stephen King, Clive Barker, and the "X-Files" with the fast-paced action and globe-trotting excitement of James Bond. "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... Highly recommended." Ginger Nuts of Horror. 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.

First I heard the screams.

Somewhere in the distance.

I didnt know where they came from. But they were clear and vivid: sounds of pure anguish. The kind of cry you hear from an animalor a personwhen the pain simply wont stop.

And more than one.

Dozens.

A chorus of voices, all pleading, all screaming … all needing the pain to stop.

I looked around.

I was standing in an underground structure of some sort. Concrete walls all around, and a dark liquid running down the sides of the corridor. I was walking through a narrow hallway, barefoot, stumbling, feeling my way forward. There was hardly any light. I heard water dripping, and a sound like a hammer striking something solid and metal.
