TWENTY SURVIVORS. ONE HOTEL. ONE KILLER. The world as we know it has ended. You and nineteen other survivors hole up in an isolated Swiss hotel. You wait, you survive. Then you find the body. One of your number has blood on their hands. The race is on to find the killer. Before the killer finds you...


Overall this is a good read - the story of survivors after an all-too-believable escalation of nuclear war leaves them stranded in a hotel in Switzerland. It’s page turning, and it’s an intriguing cast of characters, but I do wonder if the book couldn’t quite decide what it was going to be. It’s part apocalypse thriller, part crime and mystery story, and part social commentary, and I don’t know how well those elements blend together. But I do like how it ended, which is always hard to do in a survival story like this.

Rating: 3 / 5
