Something is terribly wrong in Detroit.

When Chris and Sarah bought an abandoned library to renovate and live in, they expected to be on the ground floor of the revival of Detroit. But unbeknownst to them, the city is about to fall. The devastation begins with a single woman who mysteriously tears off her clothing and starts walking the perimeter of an empty lot. Within minutes, hundreds of disparate people inexplicably form a giant human circle that slowly revolves like a hurricane of flesh. They twitch and spasm, contorting their naked bodies in a primordial death dance. They’re oblivious to everything, even the unfortunate souls who fall beneath their feet.

Bewildered citizens and authorities are desperate to know what’s causing the bizarre event… at least until it starts to rain.

Chris and Sarah abruptly find themselves trapped in a forsaken city. To survive, they must evade the horrifying illness, find food and shelter in a suddenly primitive world… and have a battle plan for when the circle stops spinning…

 This was one of the most fascinating books that I have read in 2015. The author Keith Varney really keeps the reader on their toes in this one! I was so delighted to actually read a book based on my hometown of Detroit, Michigan that I nearly blew away my other reviews in order to really sit back and dig into this book! Honestly the author portrays Detroit just how Detroit is and that to me was one heck of a job to do! 
Many people don't realize the hate that Detroit has been portrayed under so this was something that really made the difference for me, to see Detroit in  zombie light was even better! Now, this book was one that delights the zombie reader or lover for sure because it knocked me off my socks. I sure was not expecting the swift change that took away my hunger pains. Not only that but I never once felt the urge to yawn, ha ha! That should tell you the pace is definitely one that keeps ya going.

 I recommend this book to those that love meaning behind a story, because this author really gives you the background of the characters which fulfills his duty as one that writes with clarity. I can only rate this FIVE STARS because it is ONE OF THE BEST available! GET WITH THIS ONE GUYS, you can NOT GO WRONG in this choice!
