A terrorist’s bomb. A rogue experiment. An impenetrable mist. And no one is coming to help…

After a bomb explodes in a working-class neighborhood of Barcester, Massachusetts, police sergeant Jason Logan fights to keep order and assist the injured while desperately waiting for aid to arrive. Is the mist from the bomb preventing ambulances and fire trucks from coming in? Or has something far more dire occurred?

As the hours tick by, Logan tracks the terrorist mastermind–whom he learns is not done wreaking havoc. Cut off from modern medical resources, nurse-practitioner Kaya de los Santos treats the injured and soothes the fearful, unaware that her teenaged son Ben is on the run from both the cops and the terrorist.

The vanished begin a battle for survival against enemies they’ve always known–and forces they’ve never even imagined.

“A fast-paced story reminiscent of A Wrinkle in Time.
Eric Wilson, author of A Shred of Truth, The Best of Evil, and Expiration Date
