"First, the electricity goes--plunging the east coast in darkness after a devastating nuclear attack. Millions panic. Millions die. They are the lucky ones. Next, the chemical weapons take effect--killing or contaminating everything alive. Except a handful of survivors in a bomb shelter. They are the damned. Then, the real nightmare begins. Hordes of rats force two terrified families out of their shelter--and into the savage streets of an apocalytic wasteland. They are not alone. Vicious, chemical-crazed animals hunt in packs. Dogs tear flesh, cats draw blood, horses crush bone. Roaming gangs of the sick and dying are barely recognizable as human. These are the times that try men's souls. These are the tortures that tear families apart. This is hell on earth. The rules are simple: Kill or die"--P. [4] of cover.

Book was very good right up until the ending, which is another of those "thanks for letting me waste your time" things. Everyone presumably dies, although there being no follow-up that's not absolutely certain. There is no lead-up to this happening, it just does, and leaves you with a rotten after taste.

Easily the worst post-apoc book I've read.
