Description

"Murray and Wearmouth's latest THE BRINK is a white-knuckled rollercoaster. This novel is chocked full of everything I love: strange creatures, a world teetering on the edge, and heroes who I'd want at my side during any firefight. This isn't just a story hopped on steroids-but one injected with nitrous and blazing on all cylinders. Give me more!" -James Rollins, #1 New York Times bestseller of Crucible

The sequel to the international bestseller (including #1 Sunday Times bestseller) Awakened, by one of the stars of TruTV's Impractical Jokers and a bestselling science fiction author.

Former NYC Mayor Tom Cafferty has been haunted by the horror of a single day. The opening of the brand new Z-train subway line beneath the Hudson River-the supposed shining moment of his tenure. But the ribbon-cutting ceremony turned deadly when the train carrying Cafferty's wife and other citizens was attacked by a horde of hyper intelligent, bloodthirsty creatures previously unknown to humanity.



Everything changed for Cafferty, ex-NYPD officer Sarah Bowcut, and tech-expert Diego Munoz that day. They had uncovered the deadly truth: the attack was no accident.



And now the creatures that wreaked havoc underneath New York have spread worldwide, and with a massive cover-up-and a secret organization holding nations hostage with the knowledge of how to kill them-Cafferty's team must fight against impossible odds to save the entire planet from an apocalyptic scale disaster.

An explosive and thrilling international adventure, the stakes are even higher in the latest book from bestselling duo James S. Murray and Darren Wearmouth!

Curse you, Murray and Wearmouth, for keeping me awake so late." -- Brad Meltzer, #1 bestselling author of The Escape Artist "It's monsters. It's horror. It's danger and shocks and scream-out-loud surprises! And mainly, it's FUN. A tense and haunting thriller. Don't miss out." -- R. L.
