    This gloriously over the top paperback nasty from 1984 appears to have it all a hot English summer, millions of blowfly that are actually hybrid s so they reproduce at a tremendous rate , lots of maggots inside people that have to come out somehow and no apparent way of killing them off and while it doesn t really deliver, the reader has fun along the way assuming, of course, you like this kind of grubby Brit horror, which I most definitely do Loman, who doesn t appear to have written anything else, sets things up nicely people, location, the flies themselves but then keeps running himself into corners, so other characters have to come on and explain what s happening Mark Lambert, crippled in the troubles while on patrol in Ulster, helps his dad run the Dartmoor farm where the flies are first spotted and although we assume he s the hero he is superceded by Dr Ian Wilde, an entomologist who d not only once holidayed at Mark s farm, but figures out what s going on and has enough clout that the military listen to him There are other characters Marion, who fancies Mark and wants him to ask her hand in marriage Helen, a young widowed nurse who is attacked by the flies, survives and falls in love with Ian but for the most part they don t have a great deal to do and we also suffer that odd 1980s thing where characters are mentioned once by name and then never seen again The horror, when it comes a baby is attacked, a tramp, a bus, some teenaged tearaways, the afore mentioned Helen and an old lady on the moors is well done but it seems as though Loman tires of the sport and soon the attacks all happen off stage , with either characters mentioning them or a quick round up in the text which, for this kind of book, isn t really on A good use of location helps but this doesn t quite deliver what I d hoped it would though if you like early 80s Brit paperback horror, you should probably give it a go.
