(From the publisher):
Photographer Steve Blake is the only witness to the death of James Wilson, the director of the National Energy Council. But when he goes to offer his condolences to the man's widow, he is met at the door by James Wilson himself, still very much alive.
His journalistic suspicions alerted, Blake's investigations lead him to Melissa Gates, the wife of a policeman who survived the catastrophe which swept the village of Sweethope into the sea. He has risen rapidly to the rank of Chief Superintendant - but is he still the man she married?
Together, Blake and Melissa begin to uncover the terrifying truth about the men who have returned from the dead: all over the world an inhuman conspiracy is gathering up the reins of power. But will anyone believe their story? And is it already too late?
