Drop Dead Gorgeous, Paperback
1 out of 5 (1 rating)


As tattoo artist Star begins to ink her first client on a spring Sunday morning, something goes horribly wrong with the world...Belfast's hungover lapse into a deeper sleep than normal, their sudden deaths causing an unholy mess of crashing cars, smoldering televisions and falling aircraft.

In the chaotic aftermath a group of post-apocalyptic survivors search for purpose in a devastated city.

Ageing DJ Sean Magee and shifty-eyed Barry Rogan find drunken solace in a hotel bar.

Ex-IRA operative Mairead Burns and RIR soldier Roy Beggs form an uneasy alliance to rebuild community life.

Elsewhere, a mysterious Preacher Man lures shivering survivors out of the shadows with a promise of redemption.

Choked by the smell of death, Ireland's remaining few begin the journey toward a new life, fear and desperation giving rise to new tensions and dark old habits.

But a new threat--as gorgeous as it is deadly--creeps slowly out of life's wreckage.

Fueled by feral hunger and a thirst for chaos, the corpses of the beautiful are rising!

Review by

Sadly I was terribly dissapointed by this book. I was excited to see a tattoo artist whose work I admire had branched out into fiction and would, hopefully, inject some much needed love and gore back to into horror, a literary genre that has been lacking in fresh meat lately. However, it was not meant to be. This is an interesting idea badly executed, with the plot lacking a single character to root for and re-creation of the zombie myth that makes little sense. It has a great start but thats all. Such a shame.
