It's a shame that the writer did not sell his idea to a better writer because the plot had promise. For those of us who like the genre, it seemed like a different take. Alas, the writing was so poor and the dialogue so insipid that I could not make it to the end--even when I was trying to force myself just to see if the silly storyline (with the ridiculous, one-dimensional characters) went anywhere. Finally gave up with 1 hour and 22 minutes remaining. The narrator does not help. My recommendation is to avoid this. There so much better out there.

The story follows the search for the truth behind the history of who started the pandemic which devastated the world's population. Two of the original medical researchers are being held in prison awaiting trial, but were they really the guilty ones? As more is uncovered by the court appointed psychiatrist, Nella, and the defence lawyer, Frank, they are launched into a race to determine what has really been happening.
This is a thriller unlike other zombie apocalypse stories in that the horror is at least theoretically mostly in the recent past. A cure had been found, and now people are having to come to terms and live on, not only with each other but with themselves. And it is not easy as memories surface of the hideous past happenings in their lives. Nella and Frank have their own demons to face - will their tentative new relationship survive them? And can they, together, unravel the mystery which seems to threaten humanity again?
Well written and narrated, I can highly recommend this unusual book to all who enjoy post apocalyptic zombie stories. My only reservation, and hence the four stars, is that the growing affections between the two main protagonists sometimes felt overplayed. But it is a small criticism of this fascinating book.
And I love the cover illustration.

It keeps me listening, and impatient to know the end. Good plot, but too much romance for me.
