Eleven years after the collapse of 2027, the former United States is a shell of its former glory. Four years of war with the Chinese have left the once-great nation in shambles and dissolved the Pacific States of America, the last beacon of hope and the legacy of the its founder, Howard Beck.
The only hope for restoring civilization rests in the hands of Richard Dupree and Maxwell Harris. The two men must overcome their differences and fight their way across a lawless, desolate landscape to face an adversary that will stop at nothing to rebuild society for his own evil gain.

I felt like I only got half of a book! Although the prior two books in this series were not my favorite, they were solid. I was suspicious at first when I saw that this book was only 5 hours long, but was committed to buying it since I wanted to know how the story ended. I should have listened to my gut.
This book starts out several years in the future with our heroes Harris and Dupree basically hunting each other for some unknown falling out they had. Then, just as it starts to get interesting, we are taken back to the past to find out why they are no longer friends. Then, just as that starts to get interesting, the book ends! What happened? I feel like the publisher must have told the author he had to turn in whatever he had, like being forced to put your pencil down at the end of an exam, before you are finished. Very disappointing.
But, I guess it worked, because I am going to buy Book 4 now (probably in a couple years) because I still want to know what happened.
