    Book details

We live in a world where information is only a few clicks away, where almost any problem can be resolved by reading out the digits on a piece of plastic. Now imagine what it would be like to find yourself in a different world. One in which everything you take for granted - credit cards, computers, telephones, hot water and power - has been snatched away. To make things worse, you are on the other side of the world, with no way home. Would you sink? Or swim?Jack Stevens is forced to confront that question when, during a business trip to Sydney, a plague sweeps through the city and he finds himself trapped in a zombie movie, without the zombies. All he wants is to get back to his family, but this proves easier said than done. It's a long way home and not everyone he meets is keen to help...

  • By Fiona Smith on 2 April 2017

    Wow. This book is incredible. I'm speechless. Would make an amazing film. Thank you Tom. Didn't want it to end.

  • By Neil on 27 April 2017

    I really enjoyed this book, and finished it wanting to know what happened next. The only disappointment is that Tom has moved on to write about other things and left this hanging. Still a good read.

    I suppose we all have thought what we would do if our world was falling apart around us, how would the survival instinct kick in? I think Mr Duke has just about got it right, you will have people banding together for support trying to survive and you will have the Yobs! But with the roads empty who amongst us could resist letting rip in a flash sports car!! Readers who want flesh eating zombies will be disappointed, but all in all a good story and I'm hoping Mr Duke give us a sequel sometime in the future.

    a really good book that I've just read again, but there's no ending! where's the sequal?

    Excellent! Be aware however that this is going to be part of a series (I hope!) I want the sequel ... NOW!

    Tom Duke's post apocalypse novel captures the edge-of-the-seat tension and page turning qualities of John Wyndham's 'Day of the Triffids'. Tom skilfully weaves a complex sub-text into what may initially appear to be a straightforward narrative story-line. Whether crisis is caused by plague, financial melt-down or emotional loss, Tom's first novel evokes and explores fears that are shared by many of us. The story hits the ground running and never stops, and then you will want to read it again to fully capture all of the complex under-currents that lie beneath the surface. By addressing life's biggest questions (good v evil, life and death, scientific progress, love and fear) the author challenges us to examine what it takes to survive in the modern world.

    I enjoyed this book. It frustrates me that so many post-apocalyptic novels these days have flesh eating humans running riot. These books should have their own genre. This book tries to explore how a very small number of survivors would cope in an (almost) empty world. Although some of the characters' actions seemed a little unbelievable, this was still an interesting account of how to deal with the end of the world.
