Mike Brady was an environmental health inspector for the Merton borough council, moving there with his wife for a quiet life. After Mike has to serve an amenity notice on a resident, he notices strange slimy trails heading towards a mutilated body. With more slime trails turning up on the new estate and unexplained illness and deaths, Mike knew that he would have a hard time explaining that slugs were the cause of it.
Even though I had read this book before, I still had that same feeling of trepidation when I re-read it. This is a story that builds up tension and whilst you are reading you know something is going to happen. The scenes where the slugs attacked still gave me goose bumps. The way the author set the scene with the prologue you knew that these slugs were not your regular non-threatening garden variety slug. Throughout the story you could feel Mikes frustration and even though his hands were tied with regulations, he knew that he had to do something. With only a small amount people to turn to, it made it feel as the task was a lost cause. One of my favourite characters was Foley the museum curator as he reminded me of a wannabe mad scientist.
Even though it was set in the 80s the story did not feel old fashioned and as a fan of heavy metal I got a buzz every time I recognised an Iron Maiden reference. If you like your horror gory and want to read a great British author then pick up this book. If you want to know more about the slugs than Breeding ground is also published.
