Publisher's Summary

Outbreak - Day One
Like a fragile house of cards in a hurricane, Presidents, Premiers, entire governments and their ruling bodies disappeared instantly. Some had ensconced themselves in deep underground bunkers or remained holed up in fortified strongholds, but history would tell that most had been swallowed up by the dead - never to be heard from again.
On that last normal Saturday in July, while an unknown virus indiscriminately wreaks destruction and death to all four points of the compass - a chain of events at a rally in a downtown square gets Duncan Winters to thinking that Portland, Oregon may not be immune to the quickly spreading carnage.
But seeing is not believing until that initial veil of normalcy bias - a person's natural tendency to underestimate both the possibility of a disaster and its possible effects - is lifted and long-dormant survival instincts forged and honed in Vietnam begin to awaken within him.

Two things happened when I read this book..

I realized the following two statements were overused...

1) two things happened simultaneously
2)excessive and distracting overuse of ‘former and latter’

Good read if you can ignore those things lol - thanks for another good book sir!

Side story to the series

So Duncan's story should be book 3.5 or something in that realm, not book 10. He is an interesting character that becomes a primary character in the overall story... but this particular book is definitely only a side story to the whole series.

Would be good to hear from the characters more .

The main plot seems lost in the narration of what is going on. Need to hear more from the people in the story from there own words.
