A father and daughter try to survive the steady decline of all they know in this haunting thriller from award-winning author Ronald Malfi.
First the birds disappeared.
Then the insects took over.
Then the madness began.
They call it Wanderer's Folly - a disease of delusions, of daydreams and nightmares. A plague threatening to wipe out the human race.
After two years of creeping decay, David Arlen woke up one morning thinking that the worst was over. By midnight, he's bleeding and terrified, his wife is dead, and he's on the run in a stolen car with his eight-year-old daughter, who may be the key to a cure.
Ellie is a special girl - deep, insightful - and she knows David is lying to her. Lying about her mother. Lying about what they're running from. And lying about what he sees when he takes his eyes off the road.

Malfis' best book yet!
The ending was absolutely cliched and incredibly stupid. It ruined an otherwise good book that for whatever reason touched me and kept my interest. How could and author who could create the feeling in this loving relationship be so trite in the end.
Still worth reading but......
Another mixed review. Good voices and characterizations.
Sloppy edits at the end. Demonstrates the narrator's distain for the reader. If he had a sense of craft he would have re-narrated the whole chapter, instead of the intrusive edits if he weren't so lazy.
