I received a free copy of Zero Hour in exchange for an honest review.....
Engrossing!America's major cities are decimated by a nuclear attack. Jack Lee is on a business trip in Los Angeles when the bombs fall. Now he must make his way back to New York to find his wife and son.
The first person narrative is effective at conveying the thoughts and emotions of the main character as he makes his way cross country in an attempt to reunite with his family. This isn't a high flying, thrill-a-minute novel and that is not a criticism at all. This book's magic is in its descriptive language that puts you in the main character's shoes. You really experience his thoughts and emotions, and this translates into a suspenseful, tense and gut-wrenching story. I found myself reading at a breakzneck pace to find out how events would play out. Zero Hour really pulled me in. I highly recommend it.
