Michael Evans is only in rural St. David's to maintain a low profile after his time spent as a city cop ended in disaster. The town is perfect for him: isolated. A tiny population. Virtually no crime.
Until the night the strange canisters fall from the sky and the town priest starts killing people with his teeth. To Michael, the bloodbath looks like a murder case that the quiet town's two police officers can't possibly handle.
But this isn't just a crime scene.
And the priest is just the beginning...

I would have given it 5 stars, but.....
I really enjoyed this book. Up until right before the end, I was going to give it 5 stars. Something that I'm so tired of hearing in post apocalyptic books, is sadistic torture of women. It was just a small bit in this book, but still, it was there and it could have been left out. It brought nothing to the story.
This isn't a zombie book. It's more like "28 Days Later" except the enraged crazies rip out their eyes and then try to kill everyone.
I'll be continuing with the series, but I'll take it one book at a time. I'm a little hesitant to spend money on the next few books. So I'll be getting the next book on Kindle, since it's only an hour long audiobook. If that goes well, I'll go ahead and spend the money on audiobook 3.
Good Book; INCREDIBLE Reader
I would hesitate to listen to Panic again because the excellent reader makes the experience so terrifying, I had to turn the audiobook off twice. I just could not take it.
There are so many memorable moments in Panic, I just don't know which event I would choose. If I were forced to choose, I would say the attack on a sister and brother by their mother was probably the most breathtaking.
OMG! Craig Beck reads flawlessly and knows how to modulate his voice and build the terror to crescendos. The peaks are plural - Beck repeatedly builds the tension to a fever pitch. If I were just reading the book, I would skip over many unpleasant details, and I would have missed how carefully the author chose all his words. The book is very nuanced. Yes, this is an action packed zombie novel, but the author's writing and reader's reading make Panic a unique experience.
As I said before, the attack of the mother on her two adult children was most upsetting.
I will probably listen to the rest of the series, but I am not strong enough to do it right now.
