Ex-Marines Sam Reynolds and Chad York are at a remote pharmaceutical plant in Colorado negotiating a contract for their security company, when a deadly viral epidemic sweeps the continent, becoming a global pandemic of apocalyptic proportions. Several months pass by, and Sam and Chad decide that the contagion has run its course. They have formed relationships with Jill Myers and Laura Willis respectively, and the four of them set out to see if any of their families have survived what has been a near extinction event for the human race. An odyssey begins, and along with Sam’s mother, a widowed gas station owner and his dog, and an orphaned teenage boy, they head west towards Carmel on the Pacific coast, in the hope of finding Jill’s parents alive. Chaos rules in what is the beginning of a new age amid a burgeoning population of indigenous fauna and animals that were released from zoos and wildlife parks when the virus struck. The trek west is fraught with life-threatening incidents, as the group has to contend with deranged survivors in general and Willard Boyd – a homicidal psychopath who is on their trail and determined to kill them – in particular. Some members of the group will not make it to their intended destination, as any mistake or lack of vigilance is punished swiftly and unmercifully with violence and death, which visits them in myriad forms.Über den Autor:
I write the type of original, action-packed, violent crime thrillers that I know I would enjoy reading if they were written by such authors as: Lee Child, David Baldacci, Simon Kernick, Harlan Coben, Michael Billingham and their ilk. Over twenty years in the Prison Service proved great research into the minds of criminals, and especially into the dark world that serial killers - of who I have met quite a few - frequent. I live in a cottage a mile from the nearest main road in the Yorkshire Wolds, enjoy photography, the wildlife, and of course creating new characters to place in dilemmas that my mind dreams up. What makes a good read? Believable protagonists that you care about, set in a story that stirs all of your emotions. If you like your crime fiction fast-paced, then I believe that the books I have already uploaded on Amazon/Kindle will keep you turning the pages.
