The Last Layover: The New Homefront, Volume 1 Publisher's Summary

The Last Layover is a fiction novel based on real places and potential scenarios where an out of control government pushes America to the brink of financial and social collapse. This vulnerable state allows the unthinkable to happen, causing the comfort, security, and conveniences of our modern first world society to quickly come to an end.

Imagine yourself far from home when the world suddenly changes. Just think back to Hurricane Katrina, Hurricane Sandy, and other such recent events, and you can see just how quickly society breaks down. Those situations even occurred with the nature of the emergency being confined to one specific geographic area, where help is just the next town or state away. Now also think about how that scene would play out if help was not going to come. What about all of those modern conveniences of society like ATM's, debit/credit card readers, cell phones, and the Internet? What if it all went down while you were away from home? What about our food supply chain? How much food does your family have at home to get them through if the shelves were to go empty? Do you have what it takes to defend yourself and those around you when society takes an ugly turn and violence becomes necessary for survival?

In The Last Layover, an airline crew finds themselves on an overnight layover in New York City, far from their homes, when a series of events take place that bring our modern society to its knees.
