Publisher's Summary

A Fascinating New Twist in the Post Apocalyptic Genre
"One of the best social commentaries of our time, wrapped in a whopping good tale."
"Can't believe it's a first effort! Very suspenseful! The thought that something so 'every day' and beloved could cause such chaos is chilling. I was actually frightened by the possibilities raised here and can see how something trivial can be twisted or corrupted to wreak havoc! Good job! Fiction or prediction of a possible future scenario? Scared me to think about it." – Laura L.
"I read a lot of books, mostly sci-fi or adventure. This is the best book I have read in a long time. The story is creative, original, and the more I hear about people in this world, the more I can see that it is possible and maybe probable and making me think strongly about stockpiling. The book was well written and leaving you wanting more. I will certainly read the next volume in this (hopefully) series. I give it 5 stars." – Illiad5
The twisted world of mainstream news and social media becomes the catalyst for social upheaval, entangling Steven Bryant in a frantic fight for the lives of his family and friends. A news story goes viral, causing their once normal lives to take a dangerous turn when a flawed medical research study suggesting man’s best friend might be his worst enemy.
Chaos erupts and a near total collapse of society looms in a perfect storm of government corruption, political correctness, and social justice movements. Steven unwittingly finds himself the leader of a struggle for survival as America's civil structure and social fabric is exposed as a house of cards. Sworn enemies become allies when faced with a common cause and friends and family members become bitter enemies as they confront hunger and widespread violence in a threat to their very survival.
Life will never be the same.

Politically fueled bad science

Any additional comments?

Enjoyable, interesting, intriguing and entertaining.
Unusual and original premise for the plot line.

Political views enough to irritate just about everyone. And little snippets to offend everyone else. It depends on where you stand politically to how offended you may feel. The timeline for the story takes place in 2016 and there are several prominent names used and many that just by description you have a pretty good idea who the story is referring to.

The story is based on the premise people will believe just about anything if it's packaged right. Considering how dependent people have become on social media this is not far from the truth. The sheep/herd mentality aspect of the story is completely believable. Throughout the story he does bring up many good points about the world we live in and makes you think about what you would do in a similar situation.

A senator with Alzheimer's - that's a really scary thought.
Pushing a particular political agenda- that's done all the time.

Kevin Pierce did another great job with the narration. Great job on all the different characters. He has the perfect voice for this type of story. Kevin pierce is fast becoming on of my favorite narrators. There is just something about his voice, you can listen to him for hours on end. Even if your not into a book he keeps you listening.

Thoroughly enjoyed this book and I am looking forward to reading more from Mr. Walker in the future.
