Publisher's Summary

An unthinkable act. A family in danger. Their next breath could be their last.

The Culpeppers are in Vegas for a vow renewal when missiles from a coordinated terrorist attack streak across the sky, delivering a deadly new chemical weapon that disperses wider and lasts longer than previous generations. It is death in a single breath, with bone-breaking seizures and brain damage from contact with just a drop of the gas. Separated from their family amid the chaos, Jake and Hannah must find their way to each other so they can locate their missing children and Hannah’s mother. No one is safe, and no one knows if they'll all survive Vegas.

This is a disaster thriller featuring chemical warfare and how such an event might unfold for the average family. There is some violence and a bit of swearing, but no sexual content.

Excellent Story!

The fact that the premise of this story could actually happen makes this tale a frightening one. This is very well written and as usual, Mr. Bennett does a fantastic job of narrating.

Scary! Because it could happen!

We hear about the possibility of chemical warfare all of the time, and Surviving Vegas brings this possibility to life. Who would think that while on vacation this could/would happen? In this book, it did and Author T.K. Reilley lets us see how it effects just a few people in the area and the changes this causes in their lives. I listened to this book in 2 days because I couldn't put it down! As I said, I listened to the audio book version of this book and J. Scott Bennett is a story teller! He brings the story to life. I feel all of the happiness, sadness, hurt, anger, etc, that the characters feel. He has great way of bringing the character's personality out in the cadence of their talk and their accents. I always look forward to Scott Bennett's work!

A tale of chemical warfare

So what happens when another nation hits our cities with chemical weapons? Here is a tale of a family on vacation in Vegas when a chemically loaded missile strike is conducted in the city as well as other cities and their tale of trying to survive the gas and its aftermath of death and violently altered beings. Well written and well narrated a cautionary tale of fiction. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator or publisher

post-apocalyptic tale

This post-apocalyptic story told from multiple POV's tells the tale of a mass chemical attack on the US. Vegas can be hard enough to survive normally but when a visiting family are trapped there during the deadly attack, their adaptability and survival skills become tested to the limits. The narrator of the audiobook did a great job of the characters, brought out the tension in the story well and kept my attention. This story had some good survival tips and interesting characters but the governments response, availability of supplies, such as gas masks and medications, and the altruistic nature of the survivors were a bit unrealistic (though it would be nice if people did actually treat each other like this).

Great Survival Story!

The Culpepper family is in Vegas for a wedding vows renewal. While shopping the family notices people frantically rushing towards the exits. Then realize there have been chemical missiles launched with a deadly gas. They soon get split up and the book tells of how each goes about trying to survive. A story finally with good people helping each other out! I liked the amount of detail in the book as it isn't overwhelming or boring with too much. I was thrilled to keep listening to this audiobook once I started just to see how it ended. I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
