After Hitler kills off most of the human race with a vicious biological weapon, those who are immune to the plague must face off against those who are slowly dying and who want the survivor's blood.
In 1945, Hitler unleashed the Blood Death on Britain as his final act of vengeance.Those who died at once were the lucky ones. The really unfortunate took years. The survivors - people like me, who had the blood group that kept us safe from the disease - were now targets for those who believed our blood could save them.I survived for three years. I lived alone, spending my days avoiding the fascist Blackshirts who wanted my blood for their dying leader. Then I met the others - and life got complicated all over again . . .

I picked this book because I totally loved 'The Secret of Crickley Hall', that story was well written and engaging. However, I found '48 to be really lacking. It had some interesting ideas, history-wise, but it read like a graphic novel or comic book. I did finish it, hoping it would sink in and surprise me, but alas, I just wasted a number of hours I can't get back.
