Summary

In the style of Clive Cussler, best-selling author Philip Donlay climbs to a new height of terror in his eighth Donovan Nash thriller.

Hundreds of white-hot meteor fragments plunge toward earth near Monterey Bay, California. Huge fires ignite the tinder-dry landscape, and as the sun sets, the power grid collapses and the fires grow, illuminating a nightmare created in hell itself. Donovan Nash realizes he is trapped.

Injured and growing desperate, his options dwindling, Donovan fights to keep himself and a small band of survivors alive until dawn, when they can make one last attempt to escape the inferno.

Meanwhile, Donovan's wife, Dr. Lauren McKenna, working with the Pentagon as well as the Forest Service, envisions a bold approach to stop the fire from spreading all the way to the Bay Area and the seven million residents living there. She's terrified that, if not executed perfectly, her plan could cause the death of thousands of people - including Donovan.

Speed At Dawn

A great story, but the narrator Rhett Samuel Price was not very good. The Aussie character didn’t sound Australian at all. His voices for the characters was awful. It’s a good thing the story was interesting and exciting.
