Publisher's Summary

Once, Walt Lawson saved the world. Lately, he's lived in peaceful anonymity with his girlfriend Carrie. This morning, she's been kidnapped.

Walt has a single lead: the van that took her. Its trail points him up the coast to San Jose, where survivors have banded together against the gangs who've overrun the north. With the aid of a local guide, Walt homes in on the kidnappers, who are days from shipping Carrie far away.

But Walt's past is about to crash down on his rescue plans. For six years, Thom James has been on the hunt, blaming Walt for the death of his brother Raymond. Now that Walt's come up for air, Thom finally has a lead - and he won't stop until he's put Walt six feet underground.

A welcome bounce back from book 5

This book unites many of the primary protagonists from earlier episodes and makes for a fun-filled romp through the broken world left in the wake of the alien invasion. Walt, Keri and Mia-Tom provide plenty of exciting situational encounters I was left wanting knowing that Lucy would not be part of it. Even so, the various plot-arcs were entertaining and provided a sufficient amount nail-biting and intrigue along the way.

As with all to previous books, both the author's writing skills and the narrator's oratory abilities kept the dialog lively. Of particular note was the excellent dead-pan nature of the sarcastic repartee from Walt and even Mia-Tom under extreme conditions, know full well that they were going to pay for their silliness and pay dearly.

As I said, there was much fun to be had while on a long drive home from a family Thanksgiving trip.

It keeps geting better and better.

this series falls easily in my top 10 favorites. really enjoying them all. characters are evolving in ways I wouldn't have imagined. Walt is a little unbelievable, but every story needs a "super" hero.

Outstanding!

Just like all of the other books in the series, this one is outstanding. I've been waiting for this to be available on Audible for what seems like forever and once I learned that this was being released I listened to all of the others again. I had forgotten just how good this series is and this book did not disappoint.

Narration

Several people have commented that the narrator for this series has ruined it for them. I like him. I think it's a gritty story and he has a gritty voice that suits it perfectly.

Top notch

I have just grown to be best friends with Walt. Very definitely worth the wait. I keep telling friends to read this series and every one that does has come back with no complaints. Nice twists and turns. Ray Chase does a very good narration. Page, display or audible it is all good.

Back to the main line of the story

I enjoyed this addition more than the last. I felt as if it got back to the primary story line. I’m engaged with Walt and want to know more about him. This arc added to the overall and is a not to be missed addition. I hope the next follows suit.

behind the curve

I enjoyed the experience of the mystery/apocalyptic crime with Ellie, Dee and the intriguing Sheriff.The subplot involving Lucy Two could've been resolved better I absolutely loved her story and was terribly disappointed with her conclusion. Another great book of a terrific series but that endig though....what a heartbreak.

Good book

Very much enjoying this series! Ray Chase the narrator is excellent! However in this book 6, the reading pace seemed rushed. I hope book 7 returns to the more relaxed pace of the first 5.

Dragged

I found this dragged and dragged and although gave a nice description of characters found that this could of also been a separate book.

ok but not the best however it has a lot to live up too.
