An act of terrorism has unleashed anthrax on the city of Atlanta, killing hundreds of thousands.

The young illustrator Finn Darby managed to survive the attack, whilst many of his friends weren’t so lucky. But soon afterwards, Finn develops a disturbing affliction – when he starts to blurt things out in a strange voice beyond his control.

Countless other residents of Atlanta are experiencing a similar bizarre problem. Either all of Atlanta is suffering from a total psychological breakdown, or else the dead are returning to possess the living . . .

Moving, chilling and thoroughly gripping, Hitchers is a tale about a world in crisis – and about the dead not being ready to stay that way.
