Silver Rain by Patrick Harris is a science fiction tale of the storm to end all storms. As the clouds begin to gather and the air begins to feel moist, everyone beware, the storm to change life as we know it is coming. Deep in the underworld, a man is plotting mass genocide. He is mad, his plans are the worst that anyone could imagine and more. With just one button he fills the storm clouds with a deadly toxin, a toxin that will cause the rain to fall as silver. Two friends are getting ready to head off to a destination wedding. A mother works her fingers to the bone for her family. Another family waits for their father to return home. In America, it’s just another ordinary day, but it’s about to become the most extraordinary day ever. When the storm hits, when the silver rain falls, everyone will feel the fear. You cannot run from the silver rain and you can’t hide from it. The whole world will shake; the whole world will bow beneath the silver rain.

Silver Rain by Patrick Harris is one of the most original plots I have read for some time. Sadly, and very frighteningly, he has drawn attention to something that could very well happen in the world at some point in the future, be it near or far, although perhaps not with quite the same results – who knows? This is a mystery story, a tale of technology and science, with an outcome that actually fits more with The Dawn of the Dead – a zombie-like result. I thought this was incredibly well written, a great storyline with lots of depth to it. There is plenty of action and the characters are very well developed, fitting the story aptly. An excellent book, one that will be enjoyed by fans of mysteries and science fiction alike. I look forward to more from Patrick Harris in the future


P. Harris’s latest novel is a science fiction story full of chaos, genocide, and loss, but ever so balanced by family, true love, and self-reconciliation. Set in the near future where people that are impaired are alienated and treated less than human, our characters are faced with near impossible odds of survival, and putting the nation back together again, all before the wedding in a few days! Harris does a phenomenal job at connecting with the reader by telling a story in which bad things tend to happen at the most inopportune time, and in this case, total pandemonium and a quickly approaching storm front. But through unity and the bond of a strong family, nothing can get break the ties of love, not even a drop of Silver Rain.
