Mark Twain wrote: I had dreamed heroism, like everybody, but I had had no practice and I didn't know how to begin. I couldn't bear to begin with starving. I had already come near to that once or twice in my life and got no real enjoyment out of remembering about it.

A college student in Knoxville. An Irish couple on their dream vacation in Orlando. A bank robber in an Atlanta prison...what do they all have in common?
They are survivors of vPx073, the most deadly virus ever to be unleashed on the planet. One that has brought civilization to a standstill.
Haunted by the tragic death of his Gulf War veteran father, Cody Parsons is a struggling student at UTK when the pandemic hits Knoxville. Soon the sharpshooting skills his father taught him as a fourteen-year-old are put to good use -- especially when an ex-US army combat engineer takes him under his wing.
As food and water runs out, and roving gangs take over the cities, the paths of some very determined survivors are destined to meet...with surprising consequences.
WARNING! This story is incomplete. It doesn't end just before the climax is revealed as it would be with a true cliffhanger, but none of the threads are finished. The characters are well drawn and the story has potential, but it's impossible for me to rate this book accurately. Kevin Pierce delivers his customary outstanding performance, but I recommend holding off reading this book until it has been completed.
NOTE: I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
