Book Description

A devastated nation, a determined people; amidst the rubble, a new beginning …

The rodent-borne virus spread quickly through the country, bringing hemorrhagic death to thousands. In the ensuing panic, a second pathogen is mysteriously released; killing millions, crippling governments, and toppling the global economy like a house of cards.

Unprepared and defenseless, an eclectic mix of working class families, college students, and young professionals is forced to suffer the abrupt transition from inner-city community to fortified enclave as the Richmond district of Oregon Hill struggles to endure the first year of a dystopian nightmare. Seen through the eyes of three people – a veteran detective, a medical intern, and an eccentric tinkerer – residents of a gritty urban neighborhood must band together to protect themselves from the world-changing consequences of a society collapsed. During that dark time, the specter of death appears without warning, desperate actions produce fatal results, and misplaced loyalties, careless mistakes, and half-measures end in tragedy. But an unusual alliance and an unexpected windfall offer a glimmer of hope that the beleaguered community may yet survive.

Three Mokes East (http://amzn.com/B0038HENWS) is a sequel to Harbor on the Hill and continues the Sterling family saga some twenty years after the initial collapse.

3.0 out of 5 stars Society goes to hell in a handbasket February 23, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A deadly disease strikes, and in very short order, society breaks down. We follow a neighborhood's response to the catastrophe.

I found this to be a very antiseptic novel. We know a lot of people have died; but we don't see it and we don't deal with it. None of the people we're supposed to care about die, they don't even get sick. One pudgy woman gets thin enough to wear a belt she's admired. There's a wonderful description late in the book about a murder of crows that aptly describes the horror that's going on peripherally and that I wanted to read about, but didn't get to.

I don't understand why a community would start a free medical clinic but totally ignore figuring out the food situation. Didn't starving people drag themselves to the clinic? No, it was a complete surprise how many people died that first winter. We don't even know if there was a concerted community effort to bury them.

There's a rather long segue about a crime being committed, and the aftermath of that crime.

Morality is muddled, and not always in a sensible way. For example: our protagonists, who are allied with the police, are scavenging through a neighborhood. They run into other scavengers, and with their superior numbers, firepower and police connections chase the scavengers off, and loot their stuff. I wish they had at least split it with the scavengers. They weren't even looking for this stuff. They just rooted around after they chased the scavengers off and thought hey, maybe we can use this.

But, I finished the whole book. Ultimately, I felt these people had dignity and were trying to do the right thing.

They definitely address the food situation in the spring and that was interesting to read about.

4.0 out of 5 stars realistic January 28, 2013

A realistic assessment of post apocalyptic life, a believable scenario. While there is some extraneous gunplay most of the story relates to the realities of living from day to day.
