5 Days Ago a rash of bizarre murders swept the country.… Senseless. Brutal. Seemingly unconnected. A cop walked into a nursing home and unloaded his weapons on elderly and staff alike. A mass of school shootings. Prison riots of unprecedented brutality. Mind-boggling acts of violence in every state.

4 Days Ago the murders increased ten-fold.…
3 Days Ago the President addressed the nation and begged for calm and peace.…
2 Days Ago the killers began to mobilize.…
Yesterday all the power went out.…

Tonight they’re reading the names of those to be killed on the Emergency Broadcast System. You are listening over the battery-powered radio on your kitchen table, and they’ve just read yours. Your name is Jack Colclough. You have a wife, a daughter, and a young son. You live in Albuquerque, New Mexico. People are coming to your house to kill you and your family. You don’t know why, but you don’t have time to think about that any more.

You only have time to RUN!

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tanya | 2/18/2014

    " This is one of those books that sucked me in from the beginning. I read it a few days ago and I still have the images in my head of the family's trip across the country-the places they stayed, the people they encountered. The end was fantastic! Very creepy "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tamara | 2/13/2014

    " It was pretty good, not my fav. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mark | 2/4/2014

    " Much better than I thought it would be. Fast paced and straight into action. However a few too many 'that was lucky' moments. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stephanie Lecrone | 1/31/2014

    " Quick read-loved it...should be a movie. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Valerie Vahue | 1/30/2014

    " I read this book incredibly quickly. It was a fascinating look at the chaos of society when a percentage of the population goes on a murderous rampage. The storyline follows a family of four desperate to escape the disintegrating order of their ordinary lives. It's a survival story of the best kind. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ellie Atkins | 1/19/2014

    " Good book, keeps you interested. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ruthie | 1/13/2014

    " One of the scariest books I've ever read!! I made the mistake of reading the last 1/3 of the book in bed before I went to sleep...I had to turn on the lights! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dayle | 1/7/2014

    " Couldn't put it down-read it in one day. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Valerie | 1/1/2014

    " A pretty decent book, surprisingly (given the subject matter). Even though somewhat gory, I still enjoyed it...well-written. I think I'm just a sucker for a story of a good guy, everyman, who makes it through something horrendous and sees the other side. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kevin Singer | 12/22/2013

    " A full throttle apocalyptic thrill ride. From the very first page Crouch takes you on a journey that will keep you reading almost straight through. I read it in a matter of days, which is rare for me. Buy it. Now. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Annie | 11/13/2013

    " Bit gory in spots, but overall it was a pretty decent read. I would certainly read more of his books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anthony | 8/31/2013

    " Excellent book! A family trying to survive and get to a refuge camp while people are hunting them down. No down time in this story it was non-stop suspense. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelly | 6/23/2013

    " An effed up read I couldn't put down!!! It gave me nightmares and truly makes me dread what just may happen next! If Hunger Games offended you then steer very clear of this book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jill | 2/26/2013

    " A little violent but a good read. Made you want to keep reading to find out what happens! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Prudence | 12/28/2012

    " Good story and plot twists. Characters are well developed as well as the setting. There are a couple of events that seem a little far-fetched but it all works. I would recommend this to anyone who likes realistic, the end of our society as we know it novel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 amber | 11/21/2012

    " Can't believe this was free:) So well written. Great story. Legitimate believable characters. Slightly easy ending, but that's ok...the book was nonstop intense, so I'm ok with the ending. Solid 4 stars, maybe even 4.5. Can't wait to read something else by this author. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Scott Thompson | 9/18/2012

    " Loved this book! Didn't want to put it down even though my reading time through the day is limited. This was my first book by Blake but won't be the last. Never a dull moment throughout this entire book. Loved that I actually felt like I was there with Jack and his family. Great read! "
