The global outbreak of a new strain of virus wiped out over 99% of the population. The lone hope rests on the slim, unready shoulders of Dr. Justin Kaes and a small team of specialists from the Center for Disease Control. The researchers have discovered a cure for the plague in the blood of a cantankerous 102 year old. But there's one minor problem: the old man couldn't care less whether humanity lives or dies. And he most certainly doesn't feel like going on a road trip to sunny California.
On the way to the coast lie murderous tribes, cults, voracious animals, and the toxic remains of civilization. They face a world gone backwards, technology and industry reduced to rusting garbage. Their mission seems doomed. But there are a few decent souls still out there, citizens of Plaguesville, USA.

Excellent Audio Book
Great Narration and Storyline. So glad I finally found a book that begins and ends in one listening unlike most of these types of books that the author has to beat to death in prequels and sequels..

Genericville. Mad Max if it was bad.
Is there anything you would change about this book?
The Teresa Character was garbage. This book just seemed very schizophrenic/manic to me just jumping from one thing to another without really binding any of them together. The Characters never really developed or changed. It could use a little less comic book feel to it and use a dash more realism.
Has Plaguesville, USA turned you off from other books in this genre?
Which character – as performed by Fleet Cooper – was your favorite?
Old man Lambert
Could you see Plaguesville, USA being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
Yes, In the proud tradition of hollywood blandness it could stand shoulder to shoulder with Xena, Hercules, Star Trek Voyager, Stargate: Atlantis and Revolution.
