Part of the west coast is recovering from a series of devastating earthquakes. This caused a record drop in the stock market, and due to a national debt of 20 trillion dollars, the value of the dollar is on the edge of collapsing.
At the same time, riots are starting to break out across the country which could lead to a new civil war.
Our enemies see our weakness and know it is time for them to take their places as world leaders. However, they have to find a way to neutralize the American military. Two countries think they have come up with a way and have set everything into motion to do just that.
Vince and Kim Johnson live on a farm 40 miles to the southeast of Kansas City, Missouri. After serving 17 years in the Army, due to an injury, Vince had to take a medical retirement. Now, all he thinks he has to fight is "cabin fever". Little does he know that a chain of events is about to take place that will test all his training and skills.
He must also face his own inner battles. He will do whatever it takes to protect his family and friends, but he knows he may face judgment for his decisions.
He must also find the proper balance of handling two kinds of love from two different women, and not let temptation take him over.
Both must band together with family, inexperienced friends, and four of the men Vince served with years earlier to prepare for and try to survive a time unlike any in our history.

An Interesting look ahead
Haunting, gritty, down to earth
This is the first of this genre that I have read, so I don't have any similar books to compare it to. However I will be looking for book two when it's available.
The main character, Vince. Ben narrated the book in a very realistic manner that made me feel I was listening to someone sharing their thoughts, rather than just reading from the printed page.
Yes, even though it wasn't possible to listen in one sitting due to the length of the book, I listened for longer periods of time than I would normally because the story was interesting and narrated in a down to earth way by Ben Clark.
The story and narration were a good match and came across very effectively. Well done!
