A mysterious explosion kills thousands in the Pacific Northwest and only two young girls survive. 16 Year old Tennant and 8 year old Sophie are checking rabbit traps when they feel a vibration that builds in intensity. Their dad drops them into a storm cellar. The sound only gets worse.
I'll start by saying I LOVE JD Barker. His 4MK Thriller 3-book series were all 5 star reads for me (The Fourth Monkey, the Fifth to Die and the Sixth Wicked Child). His newest standalone book, The Caller's Games ('21) was also a 5-star read. His first collaboration with James Patterson, The Coast-to-Coast Murders was a 4 star read and I'm hoping for a sequel in this series. This book starts as a "slow burn"; just enough intrigue to be eerie and tense at the same time. I think the book went on about 100 pages too long. It was very repetitive. Overall it felt like a sci-fi plot which I personally don't like. Well done writing but if there's a book 2, I will not be reading. I gave this book a generous 3 Stars.
