In the Tri-States, everybody does their fair share. You do not steal, you do not lie, you do not cheat. Everybody pulls together...—Ben Raines
While those who survived the bombs and the fallout and the germ warfare are struggling to stay alive in a world gone mad, legendary soldier and survival expert Ben Raines is fighting to rebuild a nation from the bitter chaos and smoldering ashes of nuclear war and anarchy.
But in this hellish new order, there are devils leading armed gangs of marauders; they have names like Cowboy Vic and Texas Red, and they bring destruction wherever they go. When Raines is cut off from his SUSA Rebel forces, he becomes their prey—a special target for their frenzy and bloodlust. From Georgia to West Texas, from the Colorado to Idaho, Raines must stay one step ahead of death...until he decides it's time to turn and fight.
That's when all hell breaks loose...
