John Sinclair - Episode 9 - Gabriel Conroy - ebook
Opis

How far would you go to stay alive? How much blood would you be willing to spill? Dr. Carl Barlow is a renowned physician at St. Bartholomew's Hospital. No one knows that he is dying from leukemia, that he is staring death in the face. He would do anything for a few more months on this earth. In his desperation, he experiments on himself and crosses a line that never should have been crossed. Soon, Barlow's body is changing and he is thirsty for human blood. As Barlow stalks the streets of London, DCI John Sinclair has to face his most dangerous enemy yet... 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.

Smithfield, London. 5:29 a.m.

I held my gun steady in both hands. My breath was sure and controlled. I tried to block out the noise around me, the panicked screams in the distance, the helicopter overhead.

Slowly and carefully, I began moving into the dark alley. Step by step.

Soon, the darkness had taken me. I could hear water dripping somewhere.

I knew he was in here. I could feel him.

Barlow! I called out. Show yourself!

Nothing.

I knew exactly what he was doing. He was trying to lure me into a trap. But what choice did I have?
