Summary
Edgar Hill is thirty-five, overweight, an underperforming husband and reluctant father. After a catastrophic asteroid strike, Edgar and his family find refuge in an Edinburgh army barracks. Returning from a salvage run, Edgar finds his family gone, taken to the south coast for evacuation by an international task force. Edgar must race across the 550 miles of wasteland to find the people he loves before he loses them forever
Summary
When the world ends and you find yourself stranded on the wrong side of the country, every second counts. No one knows this more than Edgar Hill. 550 miles away from his family, he must push himself to the very limit to get back to them, or risk losing them forever... His best option is to run. But what if your best isn't good enough?
