Overview

Layne Prescot, a former high school teacher returning to America after months of living abroad, meets a strange man in a Shanghai airport and ends up carrying a mysterious briefcase with an attached wrist shackle home with him. Back in the small town of Lilly's End, Layne must cope with more than just the effects of his past indiscretions and his recently deceased father's funeral. Each day at precisely 11:23, the small town of Lilly's End sinks into violent chaos, and people are dying. Cut off from the rest of the world by a strict military quarantine and with the population in rapid decline, Layne and his friends wait with dread as the clock ticks downward.

I usually enjoy stuff that comes from the halls of Permuted Press and this was no exception, once you slogged through the first third of the book that was rife with anit-American, pro-Communism rants, long flashbacks and sidebars and philosophical musings by characters who were more interested in getting high and screwing than anything else it seemed. The thing that struck me was how the protagonist's life and history (which was explained at great length at multiple points in the book) seemed to have little impact on the events that unfolded. That being said, it was a compelling book. I took in the whole 400 pages in less than 24hrs and there were quite a few elements that I enjoyed immensely. A great find at $.99.

This is a Generation Y "Less Than Zero" with an apocolyptic/conspiracy twist. Very engaging book that is really difficult to put down. An absolute must read given the fact it's free. Some of the dream/flashback sequences are a little confusing, but otherwise, this is very well written. I will definitely be looking for more from this author.

Very good book that only took 6 - 7 hours to finish. It was a bit sporatic but it seems to fit well. It's definatly worth a read.

Great storyline, but i really could have done with a little less of the liberal "i'm better than you because my spoken intentions are morally better than yours." A high school teacher who does drugs every night, some hero..........
