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.

Review: TORTURES OF THE DAMNED by Hunter Shea

This is one SCARY story! I don't know if the generation deadened by tv and film violence and violent, Armageddon-apocalyptic video games will similarly react. For a child of the early Cold War like myself, living during the Korean Conflict, the McCarthy Era. John Birch Society, the Cuban Missile Crisis, reading TORTURES OF THE DAMNED is familiar territory: nuclear holocaust and the aftermath, fallout shelters, widespread pandemonium and societal collapse. All that is terror enough; but I don't remember any of my cherished books of the 1950's and 1960's relating animal species becoming beyond feral, ravening mobs, targeting humans. Thank you, Hunter Shea, for inspiring this new nightmare. [SMILE]

Seriously, everybody ought to read TORTURES OF THE DAMNED. It's all too realistic, and far too plausible.

Release July 28, 2015
