This is a fast-paced, action-packed thriller set in America at the beginning of a socioeconomic collapse. Although an innocent casualty of the chaos, one young man must discover his inner strength and defiant courage as he comes of age learning how to survive in the wasteland of failing services, unemployment, and violence.
With the economy in free fall, the government crippled by indecision, the streets taken over by new political parties, and the fragile institutions of civilization crumbling, a young man finds himself homeless and alone on the outskirts of Washington, D.C., facing certain death unless he can master survival skills he never imagined needing. Fending off violent citizens in an urban landscape that is gradually sliding into looting and mayhem, the protagonist emerges as an ultimate force of justice in a lawless land.
This compelling, fast-paced novel pulls readers in and lets them experience first-hand what life in the United States will be like as its teetering society begins to fall.

Maybe it's just me but not a great listen. For my first time ever I could barely listen because of the narrator. I forced myself to listen. The story was mediocre as well with a lot left to the readers interpretation.
No. Just not a good read
Anyone might have been better. The guy sounded like a pompous jerk and turned me off toward the main character immediately
At first I wasn't sure if it was Jerry Seinfeld or John Wayne reading. The narrator’s voice is really hard to stomach almost made me not want to continue on with the book.
This book could have been so much better. Overall I thought the main character was punk and the Max character was awlful as well. The writer seems to think the marine corps is the only branch of service serving our country.
