Four years after an inexplicable wave of energy decimated the American mainland, and then just as inexplicably disappeared a year later, US President James Kipper is no closer to explaining the catastrophe to the traumatised survivors.
In a decaying New York City, an assassination attempt on the President prompts the suspicion that the looters overrunning Manhattan may be more organised and sinister than previously thought.
Then out of the smoking ruin of the Middle East comes an enemy that will be Kipper's toughest challenge yet. The battle for the Wild East is just beginning, but does this New America, and its gun-shy President, have the strength of will to destroy the past in order to save the future?

Like allsorts, sci fi, history, non fiction...
Yes I would...in a year or so....its an easy and entertaining listen
Collapse, very simllar stories...the end of a powerfull America, a looming threat of Johnny Foreigner on there doorstep!
Coolio...even the womens voices werent to bad, Usually male readers just sound really camp when they do this. Which amuses me.
Nooo....its not that kind of book
Bourne Identity meets The day after tomorrow is the best description for this jolly little jaunt.
"Awsome listen and read :)"
All aspects of the story was a total draw in. The main people you could love and care about and the the baddies were very nasty and you love it when they get justice served on them.
All of John's books are as enjoyable as this one i.e. Axis of Time Trilogy, After America and the list goes on Very Happy with this book :D
Pretty much all the good guys especially. The Villains you can really dislike.
Excellent reading and he really gets into the story with all its shades.
The whole book moved me in so many emotions.
A Great listen and read :)
