Still traumatised by the events of Halloween in the tiny village of Basard, Vicky Murtagh has moved to the Irish city of Galway to forge a new life, but the ghosts of her past have followed her west.

Veterinarian, John Tighe, wants to find out why the city’s pets are viciously attacking their owners. As violence increases on the streets of Galway, he wonders if the conspiracy theories of the shut-in who lives in the apartment across from his might make sense.

The Better Living Program promises to revolutionise people’s lives, but Violet Casey is more interested in learning how to use its business model to become as successful as its creator. Could the company that has rejuvenated Galway also be responsible for its downfall?

Three people linked by a web of horror as their lives descend into 7 Weeks in Hell, to Hell or to Galway.

The second book in the 7th Hell series.

Praise for 7 Days in Hell, 7th Hell #1

Iseult Murphy clearly knows the horror genre very well and has a firm handle on the tension, building it up with confidence.


Atmospheric, well written, and definitely worth a read.


Iseult Murphy’s 7 Days In Hell is a surprising horror gem, with nods to Lovecraft, George A. Romero, and The Omen.

Nestled between counties Limerick and Cork in Southern Ireland, something evil lurks in the place of High Death.

When Vicky’s boss offers her a free vacation in a self catering cottage over Halloween break, she jumps at the chance to spend quality time with her twin sister, Irene, and Irene’s miniature schnauzer, Ronnie.

The village of Basard may boast Ireland’s longest running Halloween celebration, and one of the country’s best preserved standing stone circles, but Vicky finds the place rather dead. What’s more, she can’t sleep for the nightly roars of a distant crowd.

Will the twins survive this Halloween vacation to wake the dead, when their 7 days in paradise turns into 7 Days in Hell?

The first book in the zombie horror 7th Hell series

Mythology and Me

Julia Benally quizzes me on Irish monsters and folklore in the first of this series.

David Rae asks me what mythology means to me, and how it influences my writing.

Catherine McCarthy questions me about my writing, and which fictional character I’d like to go on a date with.

I am somewhat turned off by serious zombie stories, but I love the funny ones and this was so different from any other funny zombie story I’ve read.
