DeHart’s nightmarish landscape provides a chilling background for this post-apocalyptic story. Narrated in present tense by alternate characters, it takes you deep into their heads as they fight for survival. The all-too-believable premise is thought-provoking.
After a nuclear disaster, the Sharpe family takes to the road, trying to survive as society collapses. Jerry, the father, is an ex-marine determined to protect his wife and two children at all costs. Meanwhile a group of previously locked-up renegades is ambushing and killing to get what they want. When they attack the Sharpes and kidnap Melanie, the teenage daughter, Jerry will stop at nothing to get her back. (ORBIT, Jul., 320 pp., $13.99)
