Fiction • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

Hundreds of people are attending a benefit at San Francisco's Ritz-Carlton Hotel when an earthquake occurs. Narrator Tom Dheere sidesteps a somewhat predictable plot with his portrayal of a small group of survivors as they come together at a shelter. They soon learn that the aftershocks in their personal lives will be more devastating than the quake itself. Dheere deftly carves out speech patterns for each of the main characters. Pop singer Melanie Free, from Southern California, has just the right amount of youth in her voice, which contrasts well with the older voices of Sarah and Seth Sloane, a well-to-do couple from Northern California. Photojournalist Everett Carson has a credible Montana drawl. Dheere's secondary characters are also well defined but restrained--so they don't overshadow the primary characters.
