Journalist John Pender has returned to his home town of Whiteshead to rekindle his marriage. Ex-British intelligence officer Dave Johnson has arrived to isolate himself after his fiancé is murdered during a mission that went terribly wrong. But excavations for the new shopping centre unearth a mysterious contagion that threatens to throw their lives into chaos.
Now the residents of Whiteshead are trapped within a quarantine zone with the military on one side and ravenous hordes of living dead on the other. Escape is no longer an option.
Far out in the mouth of the estuary a small Keep sits forlornly surrounded by an apron of jagged rocks. This refuge has always been unassailable, a place of myth and legend that has grown in folklore through the years. Now, it’s the survivors’ only hope of sanctuary. But there are thousands of flesh-eating infected between them and the Keep and time is running out …
Whispers about The Estuary…
“Gunn’s writing style is very engaging, particularly his action sequences. They are plentiful, intense, appropriately blood-soaked” – Bookloons
“Almost fifteen thousand men, women, and children turned into flesh-eating zombies by a long-forgotten Nazi chemical weapon…sound like your thing?” – David Moody, author of Hater
“A seemingly idyllic setting, characters full of human weakness and heroism, and a mysterious contagion that threatens to destroy everything – fantastic ingredients for the modern horror novel!” – Gav Thorpe, author of Malekith
