An airborne strain of the AIDS virus decimates humanity. Bruno Ricasso, an Italian cop, a Carabiniere, struggles to survive on the island of Capri while Europe erupts in flames and society crumbles. But when his solitary existence is broken, Bruno returns to the empty city of Naples in search of answers.
Can Bruno find a way to stay alive in the ruins of civilization? Or will Bruno's past sins prove even more deadly than the Omega Plague?
Omega Plague: Collapse by P.R. Principe, is first and foremost, about Bruno Ricasso. Ricasso is a guy’s guy, a cop, a Carabiniere, a man who wants to defend the people, help them, and most importantly, to keep them safe. When everyone in the world begins to get sick from an airborne version of AIDS, and society starts to crumble around him, and the other cops are bailing on the small island he works and lives on, he is still trying to keep everyone safe. When the world really starts to go to pieces, he just wants to keep his sister safe – and I think all of us can understand how we just want to keep our families safe. For much of the book, Ricasso is trying to survive by myself – and does so rather well, under the circumstances, though he does meet a few interesting characters along the way. In the end, the book wraps up the major story lines, including meeting up with the re-occurring bad guy, but leaves us hanging just enough to make us wonder if there is going to be a sequel.
The author, Principe, does a great job throughout building and keeping the suspense of the story. The reader can’t help but continue to turn the pages, wondering how Bruno is going to get out of the latest disaster and hoping he’ll manage to keep his sister alive. Bruno does not show a lot of emotion throughout the book, keeping his feelings tightly in check in order to survive. Omega Plague: Collapse is a book that will keep you up at night.
