*Retribution* by Neil Crichton is a book you cannot put down once you read the first page. A tale of the apocalypse, after a loss of most of the human species, the first hints of the evolution to a superior race. But first, survival requires a struggle against a mob that doesn't evolve and the domestication of dogs that have already evolved to formidable size and intelligence. The cast of personalities is remarkable: villains, heroes, and heroines. There is no lack of violence as they learn to fly a fighter jet and travel from Canada to Colorado to rescue their kidnapped children. Crichton draws a picture of the life of a small group of survivors. A well-written book, it read easily on my Kindle.
