Simon Clark – Nailed By The Heart (NEL, 1995)

Cover: Steve Crisp


When Chris and Ruth Stainforth move to a pleasant coastal village to start a new life with their six-year-old son, David, it seems like a dream come true. Or so they think.
But they have no way of knowing that the village was once a sacred site for the old religion. And that the old God is not dead ‑ just waiting.

Already its Power stirs, changing supernaturally what it touches. It ought to herald the dawn of an age of miracles. But when the Power arouses the sleeping
horror-cargo of a ship that sank thirty years ago, the magic is tainted. And Chris, Ruth and David find themselves right in the path of a living-dead nightmare made all too murderously real …

NAILED BY THE HEART is the supercharged novel of relentless occult menace by one of the most powerful new talents on today’s horror fiction scene.
