He's written a lot of comic books.
Hill has sent chills down spines with bestselling novels including Horns, Heart-Shaped Box, and NOS4A2, while he continues to beguile readers with his Locke & Key series. His new horror thriller unfolds during an epidemic of Dragonscale, a bacteria that causes its victims to burst into flames. So far, the only way to control the disease is for the Cremation Squad to eliminate those afflicted with it. But Hunter, a school nurse recently infected, is pregnant and determined to have her child. That seems unlikely until she meets the Fireman and joins a secret refuge—only to find that there are other perils lying in wait.
