The Danes--the band known as the "Darlings of Detroit"--are washed up and desperate for inspiration, eager to once again have a number one hit. That is, until an agent from the US Army approaches them. Will they travel to an African desert and track down the source of a mysterious and malevolent sound? Under the guidance of their front man, Philip Tonka, the Danes embark on a harrowing journey through the scorching desert--a trip that takes Tonka into the heart of an ominous and twisted conspiracy. Meanwhile, in a nondescript Midwestern hospital, a nurse named Ellen tends to a patient recovering from a near-fatal accident. The circumstances that led to his injuries are mysterious--and his body heals at a remarkable rate. Ellen will do the impossible for this enigmatic patient, who reveals more about his accident with each passing day. -- Amazon.com.

As Malerman used the sense of vision as the basis of his previous book, Bird Box (soon to be a film on Netflix!), this novel relies on the sense of sound. In this book, our protagonist is on the hunt for a mysterious sound in an African desert - a sound that has rendered a nuclear weapon inert, not to mention what it can do to people... equally eerie and compelling, you won't easily predict how this book ends.

A rare combination of sci-fi, horror, and rock band literary genres. The 2nd half of the novel is completely unpredictable.
