Speed the Dawn
Philip Donlay’s eighth Donovan Nash novel, Speed the Dawn, continues the white-knuckle adventures of philanthropist Donovan Nash. The setting of Speed the Dawn takes place in Monterey, California. Nash is in a hotel when a meteor strikes the Earth. Some fragments fall into the sea, creating killer tsunamis that inundate cities along the coast, while those that fall on land create massive fires. Realizing he’s trapped with other hotel guests, Nash must battle fire, water, and looters in order to save himself and other hotel guests, for whom he becomes the only hope. Meanwhile, Nash’s wife, Pentagon consultant Dr. Lauren McKenna, must devise a solution that will ultimately decide the fate of the US West Coast.
Being an adventure novel, Speed the Dawn has its fair share of nail-biting suspense and action. Where this book really shines, though, is its description and development of the characters. Each of the main characters has their own moral compass, and sometimes it comes into conflict with that of other characters. Ultimately, the book is about teamwork and overcoming adversity, as, despite each character’s differences, they must put them aside and work together in order to survive. While Nash is in charge of ensuring his group’s survival, Lauren McKenna’s job is to fight the red tape and bureaucracy in the government and work in the best interests of the people.
