When the lights go out, can you survive?
For years, a few have warned that a day of reckoning was coming, but those warnings went unheeded and even mocked. Then that day came...
When Nicholas McNeil, a father and dedicated husband, turned out the lights in his suburban home Sunday night, they would never turn on again. During the early Monday morning hours, a spectacular and well-coordinated attack destroys the grid and brings the United States to its knees.
Nicholas was a man who had heeded the warnings to a degree, but most did not. With a society unprepared and a government overwhelmed, panic turns to chaos and soon violence.
Fighting for what resources are still available, Nicholas and his family also find themselves fighting to survive as society turns on itself.

A better SHTF novel.

The wrong narrator
The narrator's voice is deep and likeable, and would probably excel at commercial voiceovers. However, I don't think his style suits audiobooks for the following reasons: he uses the same voice for all characters (confusing), he misreads/mispronounces things repeatedly (instead of saying "Nicholas' bag" he will say "Nicholas bag").
Perhaps I should blame the editor/producer, too, because it seems like a professional one would have ordered multiple takes when an error occurred.
I will not recommend this audio version, but I would recommend the paper book.
Duke Fontaine, without a doubt!
