As the rain falls, the nightmare begins.
Blake Hudson is an environment officer who lives in a converted lighthouse on the southwest coast of England. Sky McPherson is a pathologist, recently assigned to the area. Both of them share a past.
Flight 101 had flown many routine journeys to and from Florida, so what made the 747 suddenly plunge into the Atlantic Ocean?
Joyce Masters had taken care of her invalid mother for years without complaint. So what made her do those unspeakable things when the lights went out?
Through the course of their work, Blake and Sky set out to uncover the answers, but this is their biggest mistake. As the rain falls, and in a race against time, they will have to battle not only for their survival but also for that of mankind against the greatest force on earth, nature.

The story is truly gripping!
Action, fast passed and the club, wow!
He's ability to take you in to the story and keep you there
Don't go out in the rain,...
Read the book, then the audio book and totally enjoyed the experience again.
Speedway of action,ch30, very different and then off we go again! Some chuckles in ch44, then racing on to the end. Edge of the seat!
Loved all of it highly recommendable
As someone who has a hard time with their attention span, I really need the content and the narrator to help me stay engaged - this book does both. It reads at an easy pace, but picks you up in a whirlwind of drama, I had chills several times! What made my listening experience most enjoyable was the simple, yet so important, relationship between narrator and story - that sometimes audiobooks don't quite produce.
I am one that doesn't like to spoil, but it involves several sinister cows and is truly horrifying!
As above, I said the book reads at an easy pace. I've heard bits and pieces of Mark Meadows' work before, and so I was definitely looking forward to hearing his work on a book whose content had really peaked my interest!
Again, not one to spoil, but towards the end their are some revelations that, to my mind, leave you cold and affected by the fate that has befallen the poor people in this book.
Honestly such a fun and suspenseful read! A unique angle in the realms of science, disaster, action and even a touch of romance. Brilliant stuff, and I do wish it would be turned into a film or even series!
Of course! would wholeheartedly recommend this audio version,having read the paperback version twice the audio brings a whole new perspective,the comparison between your imagination and someone else putting their interpretation to Tony Marturano's words is very interesting.Worth every penny,like a tube of Pringles once you pop you can't stop,I had to keep listening until it was finished.which meant listening all day,which is the great thing about audio you can read the story anywhere,cooking,cleaning,travelling.
I have to admit I kept thinking James Bond action all the way,but the love story was always ever present,a cross between "The Da Vinci Code"
Has to be the lorry scene,the pace is so fast and electric.
"Strap yourself in the ride will be bumpy"
I think my imagination is quite high on the imagination scale,but was not prepared for how someone else's interpretation of the story can differ.It was differed but in a very good way,the author has created something so enjoyable the earphones stayed in almost all day,and the narrator Mark did an excellent job of bringing the plot to life.well done looking forward to the next novel by this author.
Cannot recommend this audio book enough for all those folks who say they have not time to read.
Fast, pacey, thrilling and disturbing!
Blake, Sky and Matt
He just brought each character to life! I've heard other books by him. I would listen to more!
Yep! but I can't tell anybody about that otherwise it would spoil it!
I loved this book! I couldn't stop listening to it. This is my third Tony M book, and it's brilliant! The quick chapters plus the narration turned into a movie inside my head and made my long journey really short. There was always something going on. Relentless page turner. Great characters. Can't wait for the next one from TM, but I won't be going out in the rain again, at least not without an umbrella! ;)
"Worst nightmare, best book!"
I'M STAYING INSIDE.
I particularly enjoyed Blake and his resilience to the fact that something so improbable and bizarre was happening, when a lot of people around him seemed to think he was way out of touch, he insisted on his theory which was in fact true!
I particularly enjoyed the way he took on the characters of the coastguard, switching back and forth between two different people whilst maintaining the atmosphere required in such a pivotal and sinister moment in the book.
Absolutely yes! The book is so engaging and a slightly different take on the standard sci-fi thriller, I wanted to know more and more about how it would all piece together!
