By Scott B. Williams

A thrilling narrative of survival amid the violence and chaos following the catastrophic destruction of America’s power grid


As massive solar flares bombard the Earth, an intense electromagnetic pulse brings down America’s long-neglected power grid. The electric age ends and anarchy descends as desperate citizens panic. Artie Drager, whose dream Bahamas vacation turns into every parent’s worst nightmare, finds himself stranded thousands of miles from his home and only daughter, Jessica. As the horrible aftermath unfolds, Jessica is frantic about her father lost somewhere at sea. But first she must save herself right at home. Gangs of looters are raping, creating havoc, and taking everything in sight. Jessica is forced to bug out from the crumbling streets of New Orleans into the desolate and dangerous backwaters of Mississippi while her father sets sail on a trackless ocean a thousand miles away. This compelling, fast-paced, action-adventure novel has readers riveted and uneasy, questioning whether they would have what it takes to survive in an America lit only by firelight.
