Clare Campbell has worked hard to create distance between herself and her troubled family. But when she receives news of her parents’ murder, she’s forced to return to the quiet town of Clarkeston, Maine, to arrange their funeral and take legal guardianship of her unpredictable and mentally ill brother, Wes.
While Clare struggles to come to grips with the death of her parents, a terrifying pathogen outbreak overtakes the town. She is all too familiar with the resulting symptoms, which resemble those of her brother’s schizophrenia: hallucinations, paranoia, and bizarre, even violent, behavior. Before long, the government steps in—and one agent takes a special interest in Wes. Clare must make a horrifying decision: save her brother or save the world.

A fast-paced thriller about a girl coming to terms with the death of her parents just when all hell breaks loose, and everyone in town seems to suffer from schizophrenia. Clare must make a horrible choice. Took me a while to warm up to Clare, but I enjoyed up enjoying this book, and liked her more once I got to know her better. Fast-paced and suspenseful. I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
