Quake is a disaster novel of epic proportions that will have listeners thinking twice about their next trip to New York City. New York City has seen its share of disasters: terrorist attacks, blackouts, hurricanes, floods. But nothing has prepared the Big Apple for the biggest earthquake to ever hit the United States—9.0 on the Richter scale. Manhattan and the surrounding boroughs are a smoldering catastrophe, plunging New York into terrifying chaos. Skyscrapers and bridges have collapsed, killing hundreds of thousands. For a handful of survivors, the nightmare is just beginning. Clawing north, navigating the ruined city amid violent aftershocks, FBI agent Francisco Mendoza hopes to reunite with his wife. Assistant US Attorney Nick Dykstra is hell-bent on finding his daughter way uptown at Columbia University—before a 9/11 conspirator who escaped during the quake finds her first. But the Indian Point nuclear power plant, forty miles north, is severely damaged. A deadly cloud of radiation is drifting toward the city. The only chance for survival is going down into the subways—and deeper still.
