"Jimmy Veeder and Bobby Maves are back at it, two years after the events of Dove Season--they're not exactly the luckiest guys in the Imperial Valley, but, hey, they win more fights than they lose. Settled on his own farmland and living like a true family man after years of irresponsible fun, Jimmy's got a straight life cut out for him. But he's knocking years off that life thanks to fun-yet-dangerous Bobby's booze-addled antics--especially now that Bobby is single, volatile, profane as ever, and bored as hell. When Bobby's teenage daughter goes missing, he and Jimmy take off on a misadventure that starts out as merely unfortunate and escalates to downright calamitous. Bobby won't hesitate to kick a hornets' nest to get the girl to safety, but when the rescue mission goes riotously sideways, the duo's grit--and loyalty to each other--is put to the test."--Publisher's website.

By dawn, only a dead city remains, eerily quiet and still, except for mutant beasts that hide from the light, multiply, and await the shadows of night to continue their relentless advance. Ordered to investigate the unfolding crisis, biowarfare specialist Carolyn Ridnour barely escapes the creatures' nocturnal onslaught, saved in the nick of time by Colonel Garrett Hoffman, who lost hundreds of his troops to a swarm that neither bombs nor bullets can stop. As Carolyn and Garrett race to stop the plague, a battered and broken government prepares to release the fury of America's nuclear arsenal on its own soil and its own citizens." -- back cover.
