Publisher's Summary

And so it begins....
In the United States, the Department of Defense and the NSA computer networks have been hacked. A nuclear-armed CIA drone has lost all flight control. North Korea...Iran...Russia...and soon the gates of Hell will open.
Defcon 1 - Full Scale Nuclear War
Humanity's most terrifying nightmare has become reality. Bombs are detonated, missiles are launched, counterstrikes are ordered, and within minutes, untold thousands of megatons have left countless millions dead or dying. Devastation of biblical proportions has fallen over the land...and the USA has been hit the hardest.
Now the survivors are on their own....
The death toll is incalculable. Following the devastation, there is no law, no power, no communication. But there are survivors. And now the real battle begins, on the ground, hand to hand, person to person. Can those who remain survive long enough to rebuild a world...or will it just take a little longer for them to die?

Typical cookie cutter story

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

This book was average. Nothing truly imaginative. The typical, bad thing happens and the majority of the world goes mad max almost overnight. I could of use a little more character development or story. Overall, average.

Would you be willing to try another book from Tim Washburn? Why or why not?

I would give Washburn another try. His writing style is excellent and flows well and is easy to listen too.

It ain't no 1 second after.

Story line is slow at first, then picks up pace pretty quick.
It almost felt like a old wooden rollercoaster being bounced around from story line to story line so often. Overall, great book and couldn't stop listening to it. I'd definitely buy it again and listen to anything Joe Barrett narrates.
