Liked this book
I was given Zero Hour by D.M. Baillie to read and review. The book has an interesting plot - almost all of the major cities in the United States have been destroyed by nuclear bombs. The main character in the book is in California on business at the time and his wife and child are in New York. The story is his struggle to make it back to see if they have survived. While the storyline is interesting the edition I received needs a lot of editing, the lack of which took away from my enjoyment of this story.
