Chilling as a Stephen King novel... I inhaled it in 24 hours. Lewis inspires so much admiration for the brains and courage of the few Churchills fighting against the many Chamberlains in Washington, state government and the CDC. But in the end "no-one is coming to save you". The system is broken and the US will go down in history as having the world's worst response to COVID-19. The jacket quote for this book should be from Charity Dean who, at one point, says "There is more testing happening in Zimbabwe than in California."
