No one knows how the world died.
They only know that it happened centuries ago.
Among the remnants of mankind - the people that live and die scavenging in the ruins - it is thought that the strangers who live behind the barrier, inside their protected city, may still hold that secret.
But no one taken by the hunters from the city ever comes back.
For Jack Avery, living among the ruins of the outer zone and scavenging to survive is not the worst of nightmares. Something haunts him far more than any hunter patrol. In one short moment, two years before, something happened that changed him. This story is about his journey through the apocalypse, but also through his own regrets and doubts.
Are there second chances?
Can Jack find the answer to his torment among the shattered ruins of the past?

Another winner from Glynn James
I received a free copy of this audiobook from the author.
I listened to this and to 'At Last, Goodbye' consecutively, and actually wondered if they could be two sides of the same story. We are in the area Glynn James does so well - a dystopian future where no one really understands how things got the way they have - and as usual he does a very good job of creating an atmosphere of fear and tension while we slowly learn what sort of society we are visiting.
The humanity of the event which haunts the narrator, and the bleak ending, are genuinely affecting. The American performer of the audiobook occasionally mispronounces or wrongly stresses his words, but does an otherwise solid job of putting across the extraordinary pressures on the narrator and his fellow inhabitants.
