Necroscope by Brian Lumley
Paperback – Tor Nightfire – Aug 2022 – 389 pages
Since childhood, Harry Keogh has been able to hear and speak to dead people. The dead have been his friends, his counselors, his inspiration. Through Harry, dead composers and writers reach new audiences; dead inventors see their creations come to life. Mathematician August Mobius, dead for more than a century, teaches Harry how to fold space and time, to travel anywhere and anywhen.
Seeking revenge after his beloved mother is murdered by a psychic–and psychotic–Russian spy, Harry is recruited by Britain’s super-secret, psychically-powered spy organization, E-Branch.
The head of Russia’s ESPionage “firm” is Boris Dragosani. Like Harry, Boris can hear the dead…but only when he is mutilating their corpses. Seeking power, Boris has made a pact with an undead Thing, long buried in the mountains of Romania; they intend to conquer the West with an army of demonic warriors.
Harry Keogh and an army of the dead stand in their way. The battle will be epic.
