They spread, Mr. Cates … Once a single microscopic unit enters the body, it begins replicating. Once there are enough units in the body, they begin … consuming.

Avery Cates is a very rich man. He’s probably the richest criminal in New York City. But right now Avery Cates is pissed, because everyone around him has just started to die—in a particularly gruesome way. With every moment bringing the human race closer to extinction, Cates finds himself in the role of both executioner and savior of the entire world.

    " Two books in and I am not sure I am going to finish the series. So far the first two books have showed a lot of promise but both of them have left me wanting in the end. It's not the the plot wasn't good. The plot was great. I just felt like the stories could have been told better. I may give the third book a shot and see how it goes but right now I think I'll take a break from Avery Cates. "

    " What began as a fast-paced run-and-gun soon became a slavish bore in the last 140 pages. My largest qualm with the book, though, was the fact that the character was named Avery Cates (which makes him sound like a cake decorator or an interior designer) and the character is constantly saying his own name and how many people he has to kill. Take a note from real noir- tough guys don't talk, they just do it. Even with these minor pecadillos I would say it was a techno-noir thriller that tips it's hat to william Gibson and paces itself properly for a good 2/3s of the time. "

    " This books follows Jeff Sommers Previous book "The Electric Church" and takes place several years after it. This book still has plenty of gun fight and dirty action sequences as the first book. Which helps keep the pace of the book going. Jeff Sommers adds a lot of different twist and turns that can really keep you on the edge. He never takes you were you thought you were going. My only real criticism is that some of the action and some of the location are a little to over the top or hard to believe. But I find, when I come to these areas that Jeff keeps the pace going and you are not distracted or bored. The pace of this and his previous book are what I like best about his writing. There is always something going on. You can count on gun fights, fist fight, crashes or at least people moving. There is always motion in his books and it just capture attention and doesn't let it go until the end. The story keeps moving even past parts that you might dislike. Your can count on the story to move on the better things. "
