It all happened so quickly. First, animals became infected with the virus and their meat became poisonous. Then governments initiated the Transition.

Now, ‘special meat’ – human meat – is legal. Marcos is in the business of slaughtering humans – only no one calls them that. He works with numbers, consignments, processing.

One day, he’s given a gift to seal a deal: a specimen of the finest quality. He leaves her in his barn, tied up, a problem to be disposed of later. But she haunts Marcos.

Her trembling body, and watchful gaze, seem to understand. And soon, he becomes tortured by what has been lost – and what might still be saved.

    I really enjoyed this book and would definitely recommend although it’s not for the faint hearted.
    Weirdly, it’s not too hard to imagine a world where all meat becomes infected, which made this story even creepier to read.
    Saying that, I thoroughly enjoyed following the story of Marcos and enjoyed the unexpected twist.
