Quake is a disaster
novel of epic proportions that will have listeners thinking twice about their
next trip to New York City.
New York City has seen its share of disasters: terrorist
attacks, blackouts, hurricanes, floods. But nothing has prepared the Big Apple
for the biggest earthquake to ever hit the United States—9.0 on the Richter
scale. Manhattan and the surrounding boroughs are a smoldering catastrophe,
plunging New York into terrifying chaos. Skyscrapers and bridges have
collapsed, killing hundreds of thousands. For a handful of survivors, the
nightmare is just beginning.
Clawing north, navigating the ruined city amid
violent aftershocks, FBI agent Francisco Mendoza hopes to reunite with his
wife. Assistant US Attorney Nick Dykstra is hell-bent on finding his daughter
way uptown at Columbia University—before a 9/11 conspirator who escaped during
the quake finds her first. But the Indian Point nuclear power plant, forty
miles north, is severely damaged. A deadly cloud of radiation is drifting
toward the city. The only chance for survival is going down into the
subways—and deeper still. Download and start listening now!
