Without Warning Summary

America is Gone. It’s 2003 and American forces are assembled in Kuwait for the invasion of Iraq. In Paris an assassin wakes from a coma, in the Cascades a lone hiker watches a plane fly into a mountain and just north of the Equator a modern-day pirate, a rogue-Tasmanian, is witness to the unspeakable.

In one instant an inexplicable wave of energy has changed the world. From Canberra to Cairo things will never be the same. As the jihadists celebrate, Saddam plots revenge and the Israeli’s act, allied soldiers are left to fight a war without command. The functioning remnants of American government are left at Pearl Harbour, Guantanamo and in one desperate and isolated corner of the Pacific Northwest. A noxious waste darkens Europe’s skies and Australasia beckons as a sanctuary. An unknowable future struggles to be born.

    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.

    This is the New World. Born of chaos and madness. Remember that if nothing else. Jed Culver, President Kipper’s right hand man, knows that what is right and what is best, is rarely the same thing. Can he go against the President’s wishes? Mad Jackson Blackstone, rogue governor of the Republic of Texas, is slowly but surely destroying the new United States of America. In New York, Caitlin Monroe came within a hair’s breadth of vengeance. Is her old nemesis still alive? Lady Julianne Balwyn is being hunted, and Sofia Pieraro is completely alone, revenge her only reason to stay alive.
