Penguin Random House are set to release thriller HUSK in paperback format on 30th July 2015.

Tightly plotted and brilliantly imagined, Husk is the second novel from the award-winning author of Bait,  J. Kent Messum.

For a lucky few, death is merely an inconvenience. With the help of technology the mind can survive after a body has been laid to rest. This afterlife, however, is far from paradise.

Rhodes is a ‘Husk’. It’s an illegal and highly lucrative job – renting out control of his body and mind to the highest bidder. It’s a sure way to a better life, but some clients go too far. Then the visions start – terrible sights that haunt his waking hours. They could be dreams, or they could be something far worse – they might just be memories.

J. Kent Messum is a British Canadian writer living in Toronto. His first novel, Bait, won the 2014 Arthur Ellis Award for Best First Crime Novel for excellence in Canadian crime writing.


BatWhilst I love prosthetic effects, stop-motion animation and gore, nothing can beat a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. I don't do 3D movies so put the red and green spex away!
