Publisher's Summary

After container ships carrying black-market nuclear bombs are detonated in American port cities, millions are killed, and the country is thrown into panic.

In Greenwood, Nebraska, Paul Edwards learns about the devastating terrorist attacks on the news. As the power grid goes down, his fear is magnified by the knowledge that his wife and daughter are a thousand miles away in Atlanta.

When his prepper father-in-law, Buck, insists on being part of the rescue, things go from bad to worse. Paul and Buck have hated each other for years. Now, with deadly radiation sweeping in from the coast and the rule of law crumbling around them, the two men must put aside their longstanding feud in a desperate race to bring their family to safety - that is, if they don't kill each other first.

Good story with exciting scenes

I liked the story but do not feel I got my money's worth. If the author is going to write a story this short yet charge full price, finish the story in one complete book! It was clear the story was written under some kind of deadline. The ending had none of the adventure and detail found in the rest of the book.
Overall, it was an enjoyable and exciting book while it lasted. Narrator was great.

Great story

I enjoyed Buck & Paul.... The story was good.. It does have some of the typical story lines for his type of book. You'll hear language & there is violence but if you read SHTF books then you should be use to it by now.
I did learn something.... the urine in the eyes burning thing..... I'll file that away in my mind & hope I never need the info.
The end was wrapped up rather quickly. I thought it was going to have a huge cliffhanger once the guys got to their destination. Sure the book could be continued now that their mission is complete but the story ending lets you know there could be a sequel.
I would listen to another book by this author & this narrator.

Very good book!

This shows what can happen to our country from another SHTF scenario, nuclear strikes across America. Should there be several strike American who don't have a bunker to go to will die a terrible death. This also shows the bad & the jind come out in people in an emergency! Good book, look forward to the next one.

Better than I expected

I liked this story line a lot. It is very believable and does not soften what could happen.

Great Start!

This series has a lot of potential. Time will tell. Unfortunately, the price doesn't reflect the length of the book or in this case "short story".

Fairly good

This book was fair, but not as good as it could have been. I thought it left out alot. The story line was good but the main player was too weak.
