A horrific axe-attack. An isolated cult. Will Matt Hunter make it out alive?

During a Communion service, the teenage son of the vicar brutally attacks his father with an axe – in full view of the congregation. A frantic police search for the boy follows as rumours circulate that he was involved in devil worship. Atheist ex-minister Professor Matt Hunter is brought in to advise, yet he soon suspects the cause is far more complex than first thought.

Elsewhere, a ten-year-old boy called Ever, grows up in a small cult. They believe they are the only true humans left and that the world is filled with demons. Harnessing the powers of a bizarre ritual they hope to bring peace and paradise to the world.

Soon the worlds of Matt and Ever will collide in one terrifying and murderous night.

Severed is the third book in the Matt Hunter, creepy crime fiction series. Perfect for fans of John Connolly, Elly Griffiths, Phil Rickman, John Connolly, Stephen King and James Herbert.
