The long-dreaded nuclear conflict. The city torn apart, shattered, its people destroyed or mutilated beyond hope. For just a few, survival is possible only beneath the wrecked streets - if there is time to avoid the slow-descending poisonous ashes. But below, the rats are waiting.
To think this was first Published in 1984! I remembered for some time in the 80s, there was a panic to London and most of England, that England and America was going to go into nuclear war with Russia. James Herbert the English Horror king, he is. Tapped in to this, and the produced domain in all its Apocalyptic Horror!
The rats are back! Big angry frenzied horrible Rats. The cunning critters that can climb up a toilet if they wanted to and bite your bum Ew!!
But this time they are hardcore! they resisted the last attempt to wipe them out by humans, but there back because there world is now fucked, and its up to what is left of good old cockneys to survive not only the fall out but also the Killer Rat's!
True to form Not only has Herbert laid down his third instalment to his "Rats" series, but he blew my mind while doing it. A brilliant final part To the Rats trilogy with tons of settings in London and plots. I'm honestly quite sad it's the end to what was a great trilogy.
