Dan worked for Next Level Analytics, all he knew was middle management, his only excitement was getting a seat to himself on the bus. Brian also an employee of Next Level Analytics was ex-military, in line for a promotion.  The East Coast is on lock down from a mysterious flu virus but like viruses it has gotten to San Francisco. At Dan’s place of work only a handful of staff have turned up for work, but when the virus hits the office Dan knows he has to step up to be leader and with Brian’s help try to rescue his work colleagues.

The book is split into 2 parts. The first part is Dan telling Detective Reynolds his story, which brings the story up to date and we then follow Dan, Brian and a SWAT team as they travel to find answers.

The bromance between Dan and Brian was genuine, they worked well as a team and although Brian was used to conflict he understood the turmoil Dan was going through and throughout the book he was there as the supporting friend. When they joined up with the SWAT team they all bonded straight away and it felt like a real family, Dan felt more at home with them then his own family. Even without a military background, they all listened to Dan’s ideas.

This story is full of action and kept me gripped from page 1. The story was well written and you could feel Dan’s pain when he had to kill people he knew and his inner turmoil when he had to handle a gun.  I loved the addition of a child to the “family” and the way she was introduced was intriguing, which I hope is explained more in further books.

Ending on a cliff-hanger, you don’t have to wait to find out what happens to Dan and Brian. A great exciting read
