This postapocalyptic story of LA after an epidemic of sleeplessness will really scare you. And Huston has a talent for making you care about his characters, no matter what they do.

A great thriller/mystery of sorts. I thoroughly enjoyed this futuristic post-apocalyptic novel. You want to know why and what and how the whole way through. It takes you into a world that is both believable and unbelievable. It reminded me in some ways of The Stand - with a great cast of characters and bits that tug at your heart.

"Staff Pick" by ,

Set in an alternate America that is unraveling under the strain of a deadly plague, this masterful novel portrays the lives of two very different men on a collision course of destruction. Huston is a one of the finest writers that you've never heard of. His characters are quirky and real and speak with an authenticity that's hard to match. Do yourself a favor and read this book.

"Synopsis" by , What LAPD cop Parker Hass wants is a world both safe and just for his wife and infant daughter. But then a plague of insomnia strikes. Working undercover as a drug dealer in a Los Angeles ruled in equal parts by martial law and insurgency, Park is tasked with cutting off illegal trade in Dreamer, the only drug that can give the infected their precious sleep. After a year of lost leads, Park stumbles into the perilous shadows cast by the pharmaceutical giant behind Dreamer. Somewhere in those shadows a secret is hiding. Drawn into the inner circle of a tech guru with a warped agenda, Park delves deeper into the restless world. His wife has become sleepless, and their daughter may soon share the same fate. For them, he will risk everything. Whatever the cost to himself.
