Perhaps once in an epoch, events force evolution to take a giant leap and a life form arises that is aberrant to that from which it sprang. Call them zombies if you must; America is at the mercy of a ruthless infection that devolves the intellect into that of a simian fiend. Horrible, yes, merciless, yes, bloodthirsty, unquestionably - but it is the offspring of the infected who will change the world: The children of the fiends are a mutant mind controlling abomination, and there is no defense against them. Jon Washington is one misstep from being torn apart, eaten alive or becoming a psychotic killer. Broken down in a New Hampshire forest with millions of psychopathic Americans marching on his heels, he meets Nikki Rosen, a disgraced Marine. Together they will cross a crucible of challenges that have outwitted and killed the most resilient. In an effort to solve what is being called the Cain's pandemic, a hot zone team of CDC scientists backed by Special Forces will go to Florida. Along the way they will stare into the very face of evil. Happenstance combines these disparate groups in an explosive conclusion. Will any survive? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ben L. Sullivan.

A New York Times Notable Book Here is the story of an all-Jewish basketball team traveling in a hearse through Depression-era America in search of redemption and big money. A hilarious road novel, The House of Moses All-Stars is also a passionate portrayal of a young Jewish man struggling to realize his dreams in a country struggling to recover its ideals. Charley Rosen gives us basketball as a metaphor for life. Aaron Steiner, the protagonist of The House of Moses All-Stars, is a man very close to the edge. The former college basketball star has watched his dreams of being a successful player fall apart, his marriage disintegrate, and his baby die. In desperation he accepts his friend's offer to join a Jewish professional basketball team-The House of Moses All-Stars-which is traveling on a cross-country tour in a renovated hearse. Aaron's teammates-a Communist, a Zionist, a former bank robber, and a red-headed Irishman who passes for a Jew-are, like Aaron, trying to escape their own troubled pasts. As the members of this motley crew travel west to California through an anti-Semitic land that disdains and rebuffs them, they discover a nation grappling with social and economic collapse and fear of foreigners, in conflict with its own democratic ideals of tolerance and opportunity. Told with a rueful eye, The House of Moses All-Stars looks critically and lovingly at what it means to be an outsider in America.
