Publisher's Summary

The tension-filled sequel to The Strain, from the world-famous director whose films include Pan's Labyrinth and Hellboy.
Humans have been displaced at the top of the food chain, and now understand - to their outright horror - what it is to be not the consumer, but the consumed.
Ephraim Goodweather, director of the New York office of the Centers for Disease control, is one of the few humans who understands what is really happening. Vampires have arrived in New York City, and their condition is contagious. If they cannot be contained, the entire world is at risk of infection.
As Eph becomes consumed with the battle against the total corruption of humanity, his ex-wife, Kelly, now a vampire herself, is ever-more determined to claim their son, Zack.
As the Biblical origins of the Ancient ones are gradually revealed, Eph learns that there is a greater, more terrible plan in store for the human race - worse even than annihilation...

Good solid follow up to The Strain.

Picks up where the last book left off with New York in chaos, Vampires crawling all over the place sucking blood like there is no tomorrow (possibly this will be the case.

It's now set up nicley for part three. The only down side was that Ron Perlman (who's narration gave The Strain the edge over most audio books) was not reading it. In fairness Daniel Oreskes has a a good go at it but he's no Pearlman.

Brilliant

What made the experience of listening to The Fall the most enjoyable?

Watched the TV show and thought about buying the book but having concentration levels due to illness at the moment so got this instead, very high quality reproduction and far better than the TV series, Just have to stop falling asleep otherwise you loose your place, its the morphine that does that not the quality of the story!
