Review by: David H. Keith on July 21, 2013 :
Ms. Collison has written a frightening and depressing story about a future that very well could become reality, given the proliferation of the gun culture in contemporary American society. That she, herself, is a nurse adds to the chilling possibilities. The woman knows her subject all too well - I know this because I, too, work in a hospital ICU and spent almost 10 years on the streets as a Paramedic. Her descriptions of current medical equipment and procedures is spot on.

What made this book even more well-done is that she took the time to see to the minutiae of grammar, et al. That is the mark of a professional writer. My thanks to her.

Read this book. You need to, given the culture in the United States today. She calls it a satire, but it could far too easily become prophetic.
