Love love love! Alternate history set in 1880's Seattle, the setting for this book is 16 years after a rogue scientist drives his boneshaking machine under Seattle and destroys the city and fills the air with a terrible gas that kills and turns the dead into "rotters." The teenaged son of the madman goes back into the city to try to clear his father's name prompting his mother to follow and save him from what he will find there.

I did not read anything that would turn off a teenager. Great cross generational appeal.
