One of the biggest killers in history is back...and looking for victims. A 14th Century corpse is unearthed in the name of science, bringing with it a punishing legacy. Dormant underground for hundreds of years, the plague has grown stronger than ever. Once set free, it never sleeps and it takes no prisoners.

Archaeologists released it. Neither doctors, the police nor the army can stop it. Only one man can fight the new Black Death. To win, he must escape the clutches of crazed vigilantes, hell bent on executing him in the name of humanity, and survive not one but two nightmare journeys to salvation.

This Son of York gives an uncompromising portrayal of modern-day York's trial by pestilence. The accuracy of detail within is just as uncompromising and as unrelenting as the story being told. Will York ever return to normality? The answer lies in This Son Of York's gritty narrative.

About the Author

David Batten-Hill was born in 1955, in New Mills, Derbyshire. After a grammar school education, he worked as a photographer/imaging technician, first with the local newspaper and then in the local hospital. He later took up a similar post at Manchester University Medical School. He subsequently gained a Dip SIAD at Hull College.
David began writing in the mid '80s, becoming the editor of 'Kit Car' magazine and its sister title, 'Classics and Replicas'. He became a regular contributor to numerous motoring publications. After gaining an MSc in psychology from the Open University, David began working on a freelance basis for national magazines, testing motorhomes. His wife, Fiona, travelled and worked with him and later co-wrote 'Motorhomes: The Complete Guide', which was released in hardback, by Robert Hale, in September 2009.
David is one of those unusual individuals who combines a deep technical knowledge with an artistic tendency. He lived near York for over 20 years. A dyed-in-the-wool car enthusiast, David enjoys taking photographs, playing digital keyboards, and appreciating both modern and classic films.
Fiona and David now live in the Lake District, in a converted Victorian stable.
