Publisher's Summary

In a world made nearly perfect by man's enlightened progress, an ancient, hungry apocalypse slithers from the shadows and onto the clean, brightly lit streets. Though few realize anything is wrong, it's already too late: too late for the authorities to face this new threat, for science to discover a cure, for the world's warriors to gear up to fight. It is humanity's swan song, and the fat lady is on the stage and clearing her throat. Now it's up to five damaged strangers: a homicide detective, a lonely nurse, a college student, his insecure girlfriend, and a methodical killer with the heart of a child. Now it is the perfect society's misfits who must piece together the mystery and find the courage to stand together against impossible odds. Sometimes destiny falls unexpected into the most broken lives, like a careless brick fallen out of the clear black sky.

Plot line was good

Plot line was good. Unfortunately the narration was not good. There was a complete lack of character inflection and the narrator moved between characters so fast it was like going from the end of 1 paragraph to the start of another. It made following the audible so hard I finally gave up and went back to reading it on the Kindle
