Supervolcano: Eruption by Harry Turtledove

Supervolcano: Eruption by Harry Turtledove
Turtledove is the king of alternate histories.  In this book he has written an alternate present.  The story follows one family and their significant others and friends when the supervolcano at Yellowstone decides to blow. The main character, is a police lieutenant outside of Los Angeles, is busy tracking down a serial killer when the event occurs.  How will the rest of his family fare?
What I really liked about this book is the variety of places characters were when the eruptions happened.  There are characters in California, Colorado, Nebraska, even Maine.  It is interesting to hear about what other parts of the country are experiencing.
I didn’t know that this was to be the first in a trilogy, but I should have guessed since Turtledove is fond of writing trilogies.  I would give the next one a listen to hear what happens next!
