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 Although it was written over 20 years ago and the technology may be a little out of date, this book still honors their hard, behind the scenes work.)

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.

Awesome disaster book.

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

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!

The ending seemed a little forced, as if the author suddenly remembered this was supposed to be a Jackie Harlan mystery, but the rest of the book was well worth it. It had me on the edge of my seat most of the way through. Very scary stuff!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

I couldn't put it down.

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!
