Publisher's Summary

The Dice Are Cast...

Death Watches and Waits

The sanctuary walls were breached and through them poured screaming hordes of night runners. About to be overrun, the survivors formed a last stand against the thousands that threatened to end their existence. Inexplicably, the night runners, who were on the verge of taking one of the last vestiges of humanity, departed, carrying the limp body of Lynn with them.

Communications with the compound failed as Jack was out searching for additional survivors, leaving him unaware of what was happening at home. A tragedy sends him rushing back where he learns about the attack and Lynn being taken. Not knowing if she's alive or dead, he sets off in search for her.

A mysterious image is sent setting forth a confrontation with Sandra, the female night runner responsible for the attack on the sanctuary. Is Lynn alive, or is this some elaborate trap? Jack will put everything on the line in order to find out.

When logical reasoning fails...

Insanity must be expected

Great story! I wish the next one was available now

You would think that after eight books this author's imagination would run dry on the topic of "Night Runners", but he keeps it entertaining with fresh content, including side stories and new situations for the main characters.

Good book, Great narration.

Well, I liked the book. It seems as though they are doing a lot of busy work in this one and not much of note happens for most of the book. And I truly despise cliffhanger books, especially when they are new books, mostly because you are left hanging the whole time it takes to write the followup book.
That being said I really like the practicality the author puts into his work. The things talked about in this series are things you would have to think about if anything ever happened like this, hey don't knock it, you never know. lol.

Another cliff hanger!!!!

Very entertaining if you like post apocalyptic zombie type survival listens!!! I've listen to all of the new World Series and can't wait for the next. While this isn't normally my taste! I find the style and the narrator a little over the top. I can't help but enjoy this series!!! So much macho fun, with just enough humanity to keep it grounded. Enjoy!!'

Time for another read through.

Clear your schedule. Love the series. From the night runners to the personal aspects of the book. Going for my second listen through. It gets intense some times and I can't put it down.

John O'Brien is a Genius of Zombie Fiction!

Any additional comments?

Jack Walker, Greg and Red Team are awesome. If you’ve come this far in the series, I would suggest that it is now impossible to stop. Just buy the rest of the set to be sure you can binge uninterrupted! This book is highly recommended!
