Kate’s brother, Frank, has separated from his spouse, Gary, and needs a house sitter. His house is in the eco-exclusive town of Greenloop in Washington state. Kate is an over-scheduled LA CPA who is married to the consistently unemployed Dan. She believes house sitting will be a way to relax and bond with her husband. But Kate is dead wrong. When Mount Rainier erupts, it pushes a lahar, or boiling mudslide, on a collision course with Greenloop. But what else is being pushed to the tiny town? And why does it smell like eggs and garbage? What happens next is described within Devolution.
Ever since watching The Poseidon Adventure as a young child, I have loved disaster stories. This author also wrote World War Z so I assumed I was in for a treat. And I, unlike Kate, was dead right. Devolution is an imaginative take on a horror tale that will leave you breathlessly reading as fast as possible until the exciting and ultimately satisfying conclusion! 5 stars and a favorite!
