While attending the funeral of his brother David's wife they are invaded by government soldiers are loading everyone on buses, forcefully evacuating everyone to the United States, during which many families were separated, lost, or left behind.
Definitely not the usual gorefest of a typical Matt Shaw book, yet with his usual flair and sense of style, you are treated to a softer (though not marshmallow soft) side. Reminiscent of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster where everyone was piled on buses, leaving all their belongings behind, Matt Shaw cranks it up to the complete evacuation of England.
His characters are well developed, the storyline well thought out, no typos nor errors with sentence structure, the events move along at a pace which keeps the reader interested in what occurs next.
Definitely an enjoyable read, would recommend to a select few of my friends and family.
