People have lost faith in their politicians and the developed democracies seem feeble and hollow, in thrall to Wall Street and the greedy banks and stock exchanges which have bled their countries white and shamelessly continue to plunder their nation’s assets, enriching themselves at the expense of the poor and the working classes. Bankers on bloated salaries fixed by cabals of cronies seem like vampires, sucking the life-blood out of the very countries which sustained them, like parasites content to drain their hosts to death and then leaping on to the next prey.To the East and to the West extremist fundamentalist sects and parties draw millions to their ranks in search of brutally simple answers to the daunting problems overwhelming the world. Politicians are generally held in contempt as their own corruption and greed is laid bare. Violent nationalist parties and groups win increasing popularity and begin to move boldly from the shadows to strut centre-stage while the bien-pensant wring their hands. Minority groups are hounded and persecuted, routinely attacked and driven from their homes. Ethnic cleansing has reared its head in Europe and will do so again.It is 1939.

It has the steam-power of a rattling good narrative, spine-chilling scenes of violence and horror, villains to die for and heroes pitting their wits and all that the IRA has given them to take on the might of the Third Reich and the terrifying powers of the Vampyr. It has love and passion and desire and despair, more twists than a corkscrew and a sting in the tail that must not be revealed until the very last page. It’s a humdinger.‘Blood’s Dream’ – A Nightmare Read.
