Description
In Matthew Costello's widely acclaimed post-apocalyptic thriller, Vacation, NYPD cop Jack Murphy leaves the city with his wife, Christie, and kids, Kate and Simon. Retreating to the supposed safety of a bucolic camp for families, Jack discovers that the plague of cannibalism that has claimed so many cities, is here as well. And only his self-sacrifice will enable his wife, his kids...to get out.In Home Christie tries to return to the gated security of their home. At least in that world, there were security guards with AR-15s, and electric fences. But when Christie returns, she discovers that -- for them -- home has vanished, replaced by what is left of the civilized world quickly collapsing around them. Worse, another change has taken hold with humanity - and that very word...humanity did not apply any more.Now in the last volume in the series, Family, a wounded Christie, Kate and Simon....more like equals than a mother and kids...must flee that world to find if there is any place that can be safe for them, any place that they can be a family. Any place ...where they can survive. And as in the first book, sometimes only the most terrible sacrifice will allow your family...to live.
