|PLAGUESVILLE, USA by Jim LaVigne|
The year is 2075, and the vast majority of humanity is dead.
The global outbreak of a new strain of virus wiped out over 99% of the population. The lone hope rests on the slim, unready shoulders of Dr. Justin Kaes and a small team of specialists from the Center for Disease Control. The researchers have discovered a cure for the plague in the blood of a cantankerous 102 year old. But there’s one minor problem: the old man couldn’t care less whether humanity lives or dies. And he most certainly doesn’t feel like going on a road trip to sunny California.
On the way to the coast lie murderous tribes, cults, voracious animals, and the toxic remains of civilization. They face a world gone backwards, technology and industry reduced to rusting garbage. Their mission seems doomed… But there are a few decent souls still out there, citizens of Plaguesville, USA.
“Imagine FALLOUT mixed with DOOMSDAY and MAD MAX but with the violence, intrigue, and horror on overdrive; boil it down and you have the best apocalyptic novel ever.”
“LaVigne offers the reader an incredibly well-developed post-apocalyptic America that haunts the imagination well after the last page is turned.”
