The year is 1948 in this “what-if” world in which only a handful of humans have survived a biological weapon let loose by Nazi Germany. But there is no peace among the survivors, a few of whom are immune to the “blood death,” while the rest desperately seek a cure. All of this is only background for this well-crafted exercise in breathless sensationalism. The intensity and naturalness of William Dufris’s colloquial first-person narration, plus the startling virtuosity of his character voices, almost add up to a one-man radio drama. Only music and sound effects are missing. An eleven-hour adrenaline rush isn’t everyone’s idea of fun, but this audiobook does what it does supremely well. J.N.
