First draft of the blurb:
Six months after the viral outbreak, civilised society in the UK has broken down. Vicky and her group travel to the Northumbrian island of Lindisfarne, where they are welcomed by an existing community.
Other survivors arrive; new relationships are formed, old ones renewed, but the honeymoon period does not last long. Goodwill within the community begins to break down, egos clash, and the islanders soon discover that there are greater dangers than not having enough to eat.
Meanwhile, in the south, Doyle discovers that rebuilding is taking place in the middle of the devastated countryside. He comes face to face with Alex Verlander from Renova Workforce Liaison, who makes him an offer he can't refuse. But is UK 2.0 a world in which he will want to live?
Lindisfarne is Book #2 in the Project Renova series. A book of short story outtakes, entitled Patient Zero, should be available by the end of 2017, with Book #3, working title UK 2.0, due in mid 2018.
