New to the Hot Springs PD, Lisa Reynolds was not all that welcomed by her coworkers, especially those who were passed over for the position. But it didn't matter anymore. Her 30-day probation period ended on the same day of the Z-poc's arrival. Overnight the world goes from bad to worse as thousands die in the initial onslaught. National Guard and regular military units deployed the day before to the north leave the city in mayhem. All directions lead to death until one unlikely candidate steps forward with a plan.
"Still a Rush"
Glenn Hascal, the narrator, does a beautiful job of depicting two cantankerous farmers sitting in their farmhouse on Christmas Eve, reliving fond childhood memories of the season. They learn the plight of a less fortunate neighboring farmer whose family will be forced to do without during this joyous season. This is a story of goodwill, friendship, and the spirit of the season as they play Santa Claus.
