Publisher's Summary

For reclusive germophobe, Frank Talbot, dealing with his crippling fear of contamination and germs has always been a challenge, but now he may have no choice.

After a mysterious outbreak of a highly lethal virus ravages the globe and hundreds succumb to the contagious illness, the US government instigates a cordon sanitaire in major cities to contain it from spreading rapidly around the nation.

At the onset of the epidemic, his ex-wife, Kate, an epidemiologist for the CDC, warns Frank and their daughter, Ella, to prepare for the worst. The only hope of survival is retreating to their cottage on one of the isolated islands in the St. Lawrence River.

Desperation breeds anxiety. Their survival depends on fighting back and they're determined to survive.

    "Not Bad! I give the story 2 1/2 stars!!!! "

    Honestly its not a bad apocalyptic novel, but its not the greatest I've ever read either. Its actually a trilogy that has been put into a complete collection which is alot better then spending 3 credits, 1 for each individual book, so I'm glad they combined them into 1 novel. Plot was OK, but was for sure lacking in many areas, the characters were so back and forth especially the main character that it was hard to care about him, or any of the others, that honestly at the end it really didn't matter who lived or died because I didn't feel connected with any of them. The build up to the main event lasted the whole last novel, then was over in seconds with no real resolutions just those certain thugs dead, that's it. Its hard to explain without giving anything away which is why I don't normally leave reviews especially when I'm not impressed with a book, but I guess my main thing is that I don't feel like it was a waste of a credit, it's worth a read, just don't go into it expecting anything other then a mediocre story, something decent to pass the time but don't go expecting a Sarah Lyons Fleming story either because its nowhere near that good. It's just OK, but yes worth reading!!!!!

    "Love the Setting"

    I chose to listen to this story because it takes place on the St. Lawrence River.

    Story
    "Decent"

    As someone with OCD (though not a germaphobe), I understood the main character to a degree.

    I found many of the characters confusing. The leaps in “logic” they made bugged me. I began to wonder if it’s a regional cultural difference with me being southern and this taking place in upstate NY and Canada. (Attitudes towards self defense and blaming others for thief situations got really annoying)

    Aside from that, the premise was good. Being from the standpoint of someone with OCD was a nice twist. Narrator was decent. He doesn’t make my top 5, but he wasn’t impossible to listen to likes some.

    "Bravo Zulu!"

    Another great trilogy. I got the audio version. This story managed to put a unique twist in this gender for me.I am not going to spoil the story, but am going to say the main character mind set is a first for me. I hope you enjoy the story as well as I did.

    "Terrible unbelievable story line"

    I listen to a lot of post apocalyptic books, but this writer has no idea what he is writing about. The story line is way out of this world and unbelievable. I listened for a few hours before I gave up. The narrator is great, that is the only reason I kept listening, but the story sucks.

    "All manner of....i made it through this book"

    I struggled through. The narration was fine, but the repetative use of the phrase "all manner of________ fill in the blank really grated on my nerves. overal was "out there" .lots of characters with nothing going on. Sorry, just not my cup of tea. All manner of manautness.
