The hardback novel from British horror writing legend, Shaun Hutson.
Sean Doyle faced danger, death and other things he'd rather forget during his time in the Counter Terrorist Unit. But times change, even if Doyle doesn't. He's older but no wiser and the world he knew has changed.
Now he finds himself working as a Private Security Consultant in Baghdad, still a city in turmoil. His job is to protect the men working on a new rail line from terrorist attacks. For Doyle, it seems like old times but this time it's a different kind of enemy. However, someone from his past arrives to offer him the kind of work he was made for. Doyle is given the chance to re-join the Counter Terrorist Unit.
The reason is that a case he worked on thirty years earlier has been re-opened. A man he thought was dead has been spotted in the company of the Russian Mafia. But how can this be? Doyle knows that he himself killed this man one fateful night in Ireland back in the eighties. The lure of his old life is too much but when he returns he discovers there are some catches.
After physical and psychological tests, he will have to work with a partner. A man half his age who seems to embody everything Doyle despises.
Between them, these two will have to hunt down the man who Doyle thought was dead. A man with limitless wealth, twisted desires and the mind of a monster. The man responsible for the death of the only woman Doyle ever loved. It's meant to be a mission but, for Doyle, it's what he does best. It's revenge.
However, when the time comes, he will find answers that threaten not only his life but his sanity. His old, blood spattered world will come hurtling back to engulf him and a decision must be made that defies reason.
Sean Doyle is back but might wish he wasn't....
Progeny - the new hardback horror by horror legend, Shaun Hutson
Can you imagine what it would be like not to have any memory of your first ten years of life?
Jake Howard knows how that feels. He's a successful psychiatrist and writer. He has an apparently adoring lover and the respect of his peers. But he also has a huge gap where his childhood memories should be. What's more, Jake is tormented by the worst kind of nightmares. Nightmares he's not even sure are his.
Tormented by dreams and visions that threaten his sanity, he must find their source in order to understand and banish them.
His hunt will take him to a run-down seaside town, to the place where he was raised and also forty years back in time, to what he must confront to release himself from the grip of the visions and also to discover the hidden memories.
However, he will discover things about himself he did not dare imagine. Things he really didn't want to know.
And he will also discover that not everyone is what they appear to be. Those revelations will expose a darkness and horror that no one should have to confront.
Sometimes a lie is preferable.
Some truth is best left undiscovered.

London 1966. The Swinging City, awash with youthful creativity, music and fashion, excitement and opportunity. And beneath Soho’s glittering promise lurk the shadowy men who cynically exploit it, the gangsters supplying the drugs, the women, the knocked-off booze and whatever else you need to get you through the night...if the price is right. Men like Steve Knight an East End Mod with a small gang and a big dream. Steve is smart enough but is he hard enough to see it through? With the Richardsons banged up and the shadow of the law starting to fall on the Kray Twins, smaller firms are jockeying for position. And as the violence escalates, and the police start to take notice, the Knight brothers have one of their own to worry about... In this brash, exotic, disturbing new London, only one thing is certain: not all of them will make it through alive.
