Michael Evans is only in rural St. Davids 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.
"I would have given it 5 stars, but....."
Clive Barrett is a fast learner. His first kills were amateurish, but Clive knows that practice makes perfect. Soon, he expects to be one of the most notorious serial killers in the UK. He expects to be number one. There is just one problem: one of Clive's victims simply won't stay dead.
"The characterization killed it. Pun intended."
Michael Evans, crippled survivor of the massacre at St. Davids, has only one goal left: to find his young daughter. And that means journeying north and discovering that during the five days he spent comatose in an underground bunker the world has changed dramatically. And worse, it's still changing. Struggling to come to terms with a world steeped in shocking violence and ever-present danger, Michael must adapt quickly to a new reality: The virus has already infected the population.
The team had been told it would be a straightforward mission: enter St. Davids, now little more than a ghost town, retrieve the target, and return to base. Trouble is, the target is a man named Victor, and it looks like somebody else got to him first. And St. Davids is anything but a ghost town.
The only thing the survivors of the catastrophe in South Wales wanted was a safe place to ride out the apocalypse. The castle looked perfect: high walls and natural defenses that even the infection could not breach. The problem was that someone had beaten them to it. Someone who would stop at nothing to maintain control. Someone with a dark secret that could change everything.
"Can't wait for last book!"
The worst is over. All that remains for the survivors hiding in the castle is to gather supplies to prevent starvation. It is a problem they believe they can solve without further loss of life.
"Great series that dies in this book. "
The wildfire virus has caused irreversible damage to the UK, and fleeing looks like the only option left. For Michael Evans that represents a serious problem. Wheelchair-bound, and with the other survivors at the castle taken hostage by a maniac and her murderous followers, Michael alone must find a way to escape, and he will have to do it fast. Because the end is inevitable. And the clock is ticking....
