Review by Publisher's Weekly Review

In Roff's thriller, Dr. Robert Twombly documents the zombie apocalypse that has quickly overwhelmed planet Earth. Narrated by Stephen R. Thorne, the story unfolds via a series of ultrarealistic audio journal entries-replete with hisses and cracks-from Twombly that set the creepy mood from the get go. Roff's Twombly is confident, yet fragile, as he explains who he is and how he managed to escape infection. While many fans of the genre may expect a radio drama filled with gory sound effects and bloodcurdling screams, this production takes the high road and offers a simple yet incredibly haunting account of one man's greatest nightmare coming true. The result is an audiobook that is wonderfully understated-and all the more terrifying because of it. A Chronicle Books paperback. (Sept.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
