A fast moving story of survival after an earthquake along the New Madrid Fault line destroys Memphis and the surrounding area. Roy O'Conner, an ex-Marine, must protect his family and escape the devastation and violence that explodes around them. A very scary post-disaster story that shows the darker side of human nature. It is very graphically violent and disturbing, illustrating how mob mentality and criminality can create anarchy. A well written, action packed, suspenseful tale that once started is difficult to put down. You quickly become invested in the characters survival, you feel their pain and weep with them in their sorrow as their lives disintegrate around them. If you are not adverse to heartbreak and graphic violence then you will love this thought provoking book. It's only drawback is that, as an audiobook, it would have been better with a male, more animated narrator, as I found the narration a little flat and I felt it did not adequately enhance the story. I did, however, enjoy the singing and the choice of music. I received the audiobook from the author in exchange for an honest review.

The narrator brings a good emotinal feel to the story that is one of the darkest and most violent novel i have listened to in a long time! The graphic violent descriptions could be to much for people but this story is fast moving once the earthquake happens and is relentness as each chapter passes. The writing is more like a movie with its style to thematics, which is very unique for a novel. I reccommend it for people that love action and suspense.
