First, let me say that I’m a long time fan of Mr. Collings, and he’s just the sweetest person ever. All horror authors eventually put out a book that is a major disappointment. Perhaps Collings never will, because this book was outstanding! I was absolutely unable to put it down.
A group of strangers are stranded in a bus terminal when an almost-living mist envelops the entire area. They are cut off from the outside world, with all electronics and phone systems down. Strangers. But are they? Connections begin to come out as all electronic devices emit the same message, essentially saying that only one person can live, and the decision of who lives must be unanimous.
An alcoholic gangster, a newlywed couple, a grandmother seeking to meet her granddaughter, an Autistic man, a woman who thinks the world owes her, a mother fiercely protecting her daughter, and a daughter who learns that perhaps her mother is her only safe space.
Unrest, suspicion, and eventually suicide and murder abound while the “Watchers” view the entire thing.
But if you escape, is it really over?
