A MYSTERIOUS CONTAGION. MASS HYSTERIA. SUDDEN DEATH.
And a warning that would come all too late . . .
Forest Peak, California. Fourth of July. Sheriff Danielle Adelman, a troubled war veteran, thinks she has all the problems she can handle in this all-American town after her kid sister runs away from home. But when a disease-stricken horde of panicked refugees fleeing the fall of Los Angeles swarms her small mountain community, Danny realizes her problems have only just begun-starting with what might very well be the end of the world.
Danny thought she had seen humanity at its worst in war-torn Iraq, but nothing could prepare her for the remorseless struggle to survive in a dying world being overrun by the reanimated dead and men turned monster. Obsessed with finding her missing sister against all odds, Danny's epic and dangerous journey across the California desert will challenge her spirit . . . and bring her to the precipice of sanity itself.

Although I think 30 bucks is high, this book is terrific. Over the last 12 months I have purchased about 20 Zombie and Apocalypse style audio books and I would rate this one in the top 3. I would have given it 5 stars, but it is a bit too much $$.
If you liked books and series like Day by Day Armageddon by J L Bourne, or Plague of the Dead by Z. A. Recht, you will like this one too. It keeps the story balanced well between the characters and their back story with the events and chaos of the moment that really make these books exciting and draws you in. I was never bored with this story and once I started listening to it, it was very hard to stop. In addition the twists in this story are unique as far as I have seen or read in other stories.
Really looking forward to the continuation of this story.
Dont waste your money.
After four hours into a ten hour car trip I turned it off. Mind you I was a captive audience, I had spent my money, and I still turned it off. Homosexuality is a major part of the storyline and it takes away from me being able to enjoy the book. If adding homosexual characters is required by the liberal elite than at least let it play in the background and not be a major and constant part of the story. I wish I hadnt wasted my time and money with this book...
A little rough but it gets the job done
This novel was good, a solid example of the genre but I would say the lead protagonist was a bit unbelievable. She is a bit too haunted and it seems to stretch too close to being unrealistic. The first third of the novel is slow, taking a bit too long to get going but once it does it moves forward in earnest and the story comes together and makes solid sense and is enjoyable. I recommend the read but it's not the best the genre has to offer.
