One by one, cities have been falling to a terrorist attack. No one can stop the terrorists or figure out where the next attack will take place. All that is known is when the attacks start, the strange gas the terrorists use turns the moon a blood red, and black shadows of men and women are seen, slinking among the buildings. Yet, somehow, not a single survivor has managed to provide a solid description of the people attacking their towns. Most contribute this to the mysterious gas that seems to put the residence into a temporary psychotic state, but what if it’s something more than that?

This story brings us into the middle of the horror, as if a scene had been taken out of a bigger perspective - which is why it would be interesting to read the (yet non-existent) novel. And yet it works so well as a short.

As for the narrator, he usually changes dialects/accents as he changes between narration and dialogue. It often works really well, but occasionally he seems to slip which confuses or distracts me.

This one is for those who like zombie/supernatural threats taking over; perhaps the new “Van Helsing” series or a prequel to “I Am Legend” type stuff.

Disgraced investigative journalist Pip West is devastated when she discovers her best friend’s body facedown in a tranquil lake. When cops and federal agents determine her friend overdosed and then drowned, Pip knows they’re mistaken and intends to prove it. Pip is thrown off her game by grief and her unexpected attraction to the handsome federal agent on the case. The more Pip digs, the closer she gets to both the sexy FBI agent and to a bioweapons terrorist who’s more than capable of cold-bloodedly sacrificing anyone who gets in his way.

This one actually surprised me in a good way. I’m usually a bit aloof to stories described in the way that it is (“The journalist looking for the truth and the FBI agent who wants her to stop”), but it doesn’t seem as representative as I thought this time. This one is, overall, about two professionals who are being human.

I myself have watched “Castle” and am getting caught on to “Bones”. If you are in a similar viewing segment, this book might be for you.

The narrator seems to be overdoing it somewhat (think Jack McFarland’s “This is how an announcer talks!” in “Will & Grace”), but that can generally be ignored.
