Part 2 of All the Days of John Mann. Continues the story that began in The Stolen Days of John Mann.
Preacher John Mann is the only known survivor of exposure to the choke, the virus that has decimated humanity. As society struggles to survive and rebuild, Mann and his uncertain ally Gunner leave Keen in her brother's safekeeping while they continue on the trail of the missing boy David. Their road is full of treacherous turns that can only lead them into brutal conflict with a gang of Russian traffickers.
While Doctor Russell's relentless pursuit of Mann brings her closer to her quarry, unseen, the Government's net draws ever tighter around them all.
Suffering a crisis of faith, Mann is all too aware that his very existence puts all those he would hold close at risk.
'His faith seemed to diminish by the mile the further he moved away from Keen, like fuel dripping out onto the road from a cracked tank.'
When danger, betrayal and death are the common currency, John Mann's potential as a weapon, or as the source of a vaccine, is the ultimate prize that all would profit by but which he won't easily surrender.

About the Author
Charles Barrow lives in the South of England. He studied English Literature and Film at University. He currently works as a tour guide, recounting tales to visitors. He grew up in the shadow of the nuclear arms race, and his formative influence was the 1975 BBC television series ‘Survivors’, set in a post-apocalyptic Britain. It's fair to say that the resulting paranoia feeds into his current fiction. But despite fearing that the Earth of the future will be far less ‘peopled’ than it currently is he remains an optimistic soul.
