Washington, D.C., post-Miracle: The city has been hit by a spate of very unusual serial killings. The victims are different ages and genders and the locations vary, but each body has one thing in common: it has been reduced to a dried-up, desiccated husk. Special Agent Lucas Avery has dealt with some tricky puzzles in his time, but this is stranger than anything he has ever encountered. His one lead is a pair of names: Gwen and Rhys.
For Gwen Cooper and Rhys Williams, still recovering from the recent traumatic events that shook the world, life is about to get difficult and dangerous again. For it is not just Homeland Security on their trail, but something else - something alien, terrifying, and deadly.
Listening to this again, it's amazing how easily this could have been Geoffrey Beevers' Master on the loose during his long exile on Earth. The body hopping, the wearing out of bodies, the hypnotic mind-manipulation, the bits of himself scattered throughout multiple hosts ala the recent And You Will Obey Me... You know, I'm not sure they ever actually say who or what "The Cuckoo" actually is. Hmm...
That aside, this is a great story! It must be said, Kai Owen is a magnificent narrator, and does everyone's voices great. The sound design is amazing, and the story itself is wonderfully written and plotted. A nice epilogue to Miracle Day.
