A single raindrop opens a Pandora's box of horrors when the spawn of perverse genetic research performed during World War II - refined by Cold War enemies and perfected by nature - are unleashed on an unsuspecting world. By dawn only a dead city remains, eerily quiet and still except for the mutant beasts who hide from the light, multiply, and await the shadows of day's end.
Ordered to investigate the unfolding crisis, biowarfare specialist Carolyn Ridenour barely escapes the creatures' nocturnal onslaught, saved in the nick of time by Colonel Garrett Hoffmann, who has lost hundreds of his troops to the mutant army that neither bombs nor bullets can break.
As Carolyn and Garrett race to stop the plague, a battered and broken US government is preparing to release the fury of America's nuclear arsenal on its own soil.

My words have failed me. It's like this story takes every pop science and Cold War plot and just mixes it all together. Anyone one of these plots would make a fine story by its self, all together...
Well my suspension of disbelief died in the first chapter. The level of coincidence needed to make this all happen, it's utter fiction. But it's fiction that dances around in clown shoes. It's a direct to DVD movie with serious actors reading a ham fisted script.
10 out of 10 napkins needed to stop the groaning I produced for this story. The barista at my local Starbucks now looks at me funny.

Gory and fast paced
Really enjoyed the urgency that was apparent throughout. Great multiple viewpoints from key characters gave me a rounded story as the situation(s) unfolded.
Really impressed with the narrator's different voices. Only downside was Carolyn, her attempt with constant smart ar$e quips wore a little thin.
But the rest of the characters I really enjoyed.
The detail in gore was good and satiated the horror geek in me.

great story, great narrator!
I was very surprised. I liked this book a lot. the narrator had a good variety of voices, very believable too, even for females voices. the story was great, loved it - sometimes a bit over the top, but highly entertaining.

WISHING WAS NOTHING MORE THAN AN EXCUSE
FOR POOR PLANNING
This hits the ground running and keeps running and keeps running. No time for character development and no time for a plot. The writer shows his ability to read a map and that is it. It is a shame, cause it could have been good. A Nazi experiment gone wrong leading to zombie rats, dogs, humans, you name it. I love books with references to Nazi, Russians, military weapons, and mutated rats, but I guess I need a little more, like an actual story.
Narrator has one female voice, used for all females and not much difference in his man voices.
