New York Times best-selling author Ben Shapiro's new novel asks how close are we to our country's collapse - and will we be able to stop it once it begins?
America is coming apart. An illegal immigration crisis has broken out along America's Southern border, there are race riots in Detroit, a fiery female rancher-turned-militia leader has vowed revenge on the president for his arrogant policies, and the world's most notorious terrorist is planning a massive attack that could destroy the United States as we know it. Meanwhile the president is too consumed by legacy-seeking to see our country's deep peril.
Brett Hawthorne is the youngest general in the United States Army - and he's stuck, alone, behind enemy lines in Afghanistan. He's the last lost soldier of a failed war, fighting to stay alive and make it back home - but will he be able to stop the collapse of America in time?

Ben Shapiro's first novel was engaging and well written. Here's hoping there is a sequel in the works. Unfortunately, the narrator is one of the worst I've heard. Character portrayals were average but his voice when serving as the narrator was awful and distracting.
It literally is right out of the headlines and makes one think, or should.
I like Millian's style. Sometimes he can be a little monotone but no one is perfect and I have surely heard a lot worse. I will listen again.
Unless I am travelling I find it hard to listen to any book in one sitting. Sometimes I had to go back a chapter or a few minutes. I can say I listened to this book in 3 sittings though.
I think this is one of the many books that could be expanded to another book or longer. I enjoyed it and won't be returning it. Good job Ben.
The narration of this audio book is hard to listen to. It was difficult to stay focused on the story because the narration was annoying. Also, I would encourage the narrator to look up the pronunciation of town names before recording the story.
A depressingly astute tale of the left's America taken to its logical conclusion, where everything is about appearances and feelings, and damn integrity or facts. Shapiro shows how a soft and benign looking tyranny is tyranny all the same, and that there will always be those brave few who stand against it. This story is all *too* plausible.
Loved the story
It was extremely engaging and the characters had a very real feel to them.
If that is who the "reader" is no way!!! He was horrible, sounded like a robot. I was shocked at how bad he was.
Narrator was a little irritating because he kept using a long "A" sound for the article "a". Other than that he seemed decent. The story is excellent, although hearing it leaves one generally worried for the direction this country is headed. Fortunately, this is just fiction and we still have time to fix the country if we are careful!
