Overview

They knew it could happen - scientists had been warning them for years. Yet, nearly two million people living in the greater Seattle area went about their daily lives as usual. A Detective Agency thought they had found a missing woman, an upstart radio station was on the air, and an eccentric banker had just started a round of golf. Thousands were driving on freeways, shopping in malls, awaiting flights, working in downtown high-rises, and on buses in the bus tunnel.

They knew -- they just didn't believe it could happen to them.

(This book is dedicated to Ham Radio Operators all over the world who open the lines of communication after a disaster. Although it was written over 20 years ago and the technology may be a little out of date, this book still honors their hard, behind the scenes work.)

    Earthquakes and Ham Radio Operators

    I LEARNED A LOT ABOUT EARTHQUAKES AND HAMS. This
    was a very enlghtening way to learn this. The story held my interest from page 1. It is a fiction story but there is a lot to read.
    I would recommend that this book if you are interested in finding out what happens in a disaster and how much help those affected need.

    Scary but Intriguing

    No one wants to experience even a mild earthquake and this one is a doozy. The writing is immediate and hard to look away from. The author obviously knows a lot about ham radio enthusiasts and practice but doesn't explain to the reader what all the letters are about. That's really only a quibble because I recommend this book

    Not much story, but the earthquake, but that was plenty to keep me reading. I live in the Puget Sound area and this book taught me a lot! I've begun working on my earthquake kit.

    Mystery takes a back seat to aftermath of the earthquake.

    I wouldn't say it was much of a mystery but rather the aftermath of a disaster. Focuses on the HAM operators and the vital role they can play in such a scenario.

    Highly recommend for the locals and anyone who likes action/Disaster boooks.

    Having lived in Seattle I felt like I was part of the action!
    Very well written. Like other big cities (think LA/North Ridge)

    The characters blend well-- the CB Radio group bring back memories of
    chatting with my brother years ago.

    Enjoy!

    Highly recommended

    This book kept me glued to my chair. The vivid descriptions of a 9.1 earthquake made me feel as if I were there. One thing is for sure. I don't plan to move to Seattle any time soon.

    Good read about living through an earthquake

    This book of fiction is very realistic. It gave me a new perspective about quakes.

    Good read.

    This is a fast, exciting read. BUT, it gets somewhat unbelievable as the reader goes on. Anything that CAN happen actually does, even though it made me wonder if all the drama and crises are real. Nevertheless,it's a good time reading.

    Title character not featured in story

    The story was captivating, but the author could have written a better book without the side light story involving Jackie Harlan. If you watch the Syfy disaster movies, you'll like this!

    Nice read ... but disappointing

    Maybe I missed the point of this book, but Marti Talbott seemed to have a good thing going for 100 pages ... but the last two chapters just didn't seem to fit right.
    Did Talbott get tired of writing ... run out of plot ... or maybe just didn't know how to finish the plot quickly, but the final 20 or so pages were filled with typos (No, I'm not a 'grammar Nazi', I just don't expect incorrect spelling in a published work), and the twist in the final chapters was like the conclusion from a completely different story.
    If Talbott terms this a Jackie Harlan Mystery, it's difficult to understand where the mystery is because other than an insinuation of an empty grave early in the book, the entire story is about the challenges of several different groups in an earthquake which rocked Seattle ... and it's good, really good.
    I totally enjoyed the interaction about the HAM radio operators and their hard work during this tragic event ... but having the supposed "star of the story" being mostly an irrelevant player who keeps showing up in the actions of the key players in the book ... there seems to be little or no connection.
    Talbott, you've got a good opportunity for two good stories ... either the earthquake or the mystery ... but together, they just don't work. It only lead to a disappointing conclusion.
    My advice to readers ... read the first 100 pages ... use the last two chapters to prop up the short leg on the chair ... it just doesn't fit in the book.

    This book kept my attention from page 1. It gives a lot of information on ham radio operators and the service that they provide. The characters were well written and you could feel the tragedy through the author's words. I highly recommend this book!

    WOW

    I live where there is snow, I have also lived in tornado alley, there is no way I would want to live where there are earthquakes or mudslides. Snow melts and tornados you can go under. Ham operators are amazing. Good story I recommend this book.
