Author(s): Adrian J. Walker


Do the impossible Or lose your family forever...Edgar Hill, unsympathetic husband and half-hearted father, finds himself in a hopeless situation. Despite all his best efforts, he hasn't managed to keep his family together. In fact, they are further from him than ever - 550 miles to be precise. And in a world near annihilated by a terrible disaster, leaving the UK harsh and brutal, uncrossable by car or bike, his journey to find his loved ones will be fraught with challenges. His best option is to run. But what if your best isn't good enough?
