Uncorrected Proof Copy: An ambitious post-apocalyptic tale by Welsh author Rhys Thomas, author of The Suicide Club. On The Third Day is pitched as 28 Days Later meets The Survivors. In SF terms, this is not exactly ground-breaking stuff, so one hopes that Thomas brings something new and exciting to the party. A trade paperback release due from Doubleday in July.
"Society is on the brink of collapse. The Old World is vanishing, the New World is taking over. There are no rules. Not now that a deadly disease is spreading that causes its victims to turn violent. Previously loving people become murderous. No-one can tell who will turn and who will not. This is a work of force and dark brilliance - the perfect expression of the terrors of the 21st Century. "
