Summary

From the author of Whiskey Tango Foxtrot and the Invasion trilogy.

From the War on Terror, a world crippling bioweapon is released. The US scrambles teams of scientists from the Centers for Disease Control. America's top field agents are tasked with collecting samples and developing a cure. In a national laboratory, scientists race against the clock searching for a cure. Borders are closed, martial law and soldiers deployed across the homeland.

Thus begins the greatest outbreak in the history of humankind; a disease so deadly it pushes humanity to the brink of extinction. Entire populations and regions of the US quickly wiped out, millions falling victim to the primal virus. In the wake of the fast-spreading pandemic, state and local governments, desperate for answers, rush to provide relief to the devastated and overwhelmed communities. Experts in biomedical research are desperately summoned to Atlanta and military facilities across the country.

On a cold morning, the men of India Company, Second Platoon, are alerted and rapid-deployed to Virginia. Their mission: to recover and escort experts in biomedicine, specifically in the development and production of vaccines. With faulty intelligence and half-truths, Second Platoon moves forward. What they find is worse than anyone could have predicted. What was a rescue mission turns into a struggle for their own survival.

Author's note: Torment is a story I first began writing in 2014 shortly after WTF 5: Something to Fight For was completed. I wanted to tell the story of how things unfolded back in the States and have it be a stand-alone work from the rest of the series. Because of the popularity of the primary story line, I kept shelving Torment and driving on with the Whiskey Tango Foxtrot primary band of characters. But then came the Invasion trilogy, and then Donovan's War. Torment fell further and further down the to-do list.

Eventually, I adapted some of the early chapters of Torment into a short story and released it with Amazon Publishing's Kindle Worlds under the title Battle for Orchard Hill. That was a decision I immediately regretted because I knew then the story may never be completed. Then something happened, Kindle Worlds is gone, and with that, those chapters went back to the bench.

That motivated me to get back into the original manuscript and finish Torment, a story I always enjoyed and thought needed to be told. Torment is not a rewrite of the Kindle Worlds novella Battle for Orchard Hill. Torment is the original imagining and telling of that story the way I always intended it to be. 

As always, thank you for listening, and I hope you enjoy.

Fast paced and action packed

A pulse pounding accompaniment to the Whiskey Tango Foxtrot series, how it all started, and shining the spotlight on the other great characters from camp Alamo, an all round addictive read. I received this book in exchange for my honest review.

Great Story

Really enjoyed the story but, just don't like the narrator. Talks a little too fast for my taste and makes it difficult to follow.

Great book

I love military books, and this one is no different. The sense of foreboding and suspense comes over you when you listen to this high action thriller. Torment, a post-apocalyptic book, will have you sitting on the edge of your chair and staying up in bed to listen to what comes next.

The novel is a great spinoff

The story takes threw tge first threw days of tge outbreak has where shown the reactions of the military and how the event was explained to general populace in USA. Do I notice a lack of accents for the different chacthers and the military lingo for things was dropped to fast for normal names of things that it felt dumb diwn for the reader.

The story is good, there is zero personality in the narration.

I like the story. Pretty standard as far as zombie books go. But the narration is awful. It sounds like it’s narrated by a computer program. Very distracting and really takes away from the story itself. I hope the next book doesn’t have the same narrator, it’s not worth listening to if it is....

another good military read

I enjoy reading military stories when the author obviously knows the 'language's as WJ does. Nothing ruins a gread read than finding large mistakes in terms etc. waiting to read more of his books with great eagerness.

Military Comoradory in a Zombie Apoc.

I am not usually a fan of Military drama but I really enjoyed the perspective of these well fleshed out characters as the zombie apoc. unfolds.
I gave full stars for the author because I was engaged for the whole book and mad when I realized the trip was over. I gave full stars to the narrator because each character had ideocyncrasies that could be heard and in a rapid fire way NEEDED to be heard.
 I was given this free and have voluntarily left this review. I am now a fan, Thank You :)
