This one starts with Clay and his team eliminating a group calling themselves the Committee for Reconstruction led by a man named Autry. A man who tells Clay he's collecting taxes for the Committee. Clay listened to this idiot tell him they were they to collect taxes in the form of cattle and all food at the Sanders Farm. Autry looked smug right up until Clay shot him right between the eyes.
The rest of Clays people opened fire and within thirty seconds every one of the men Autry brought were dead. Clay had a team take them out to the interstate going North because he knew anyone coming from Peabody would be traveling South. They placed the bodies and trucks to make it look like they had been killed there. Misdirection does work and Clay knew others would be coming to find out what happened to the first group. It would give them a couple of days to get set up.
Clay had fox holes dug at strategic points of the farm. Fox holes that were loaded with needed gear. Clay also wanted an inventory of everything they had. He set Leane, Duece and Tandi to get it. Tandi told Clay he had an inventory of everything Barns had brought with them. Barns bought anything and everything he could think of that they might need. They had claymores and phones that could be wired into the buildings, homes and fox holes. They had a ton of money and they used it. They bought as though they would be on a long deployment. Tandi handed Clay a notebook with a list of what Barnes had brought. Clay was amazed that they had so much. Tandi told him they bought it all because they knew there would never be another resupply.
Nate is training the civilians and he knows they aren't taking the training seriously. He challenges them to beat Gordy and his team. Using airsoft paintballs Gordy and his team take every building and kill every member of the other team in thirteen minutes and fifty eight seconds. Abby and the others are crushed at having been so easily beaten. They are beginning to realize training isn't a game.
Clay heads to see the Old Man. Leon is one smart and cagey man. He was the political power in the county for decades and Clay always asks his advice. Now Clay is a door kicker and his solution to problems is to kill the problem. He's also a hell of a tactician and his abilities have saved he and his team many times.
Leon tells Clay he really needs to look at all the angles before he kills. Leon tells Clay you never know when you can use the folks who come calling. Leon is in his eighties and he tells Clay that he won't be around much longer and that he Clay is going to have to be the leader of this group. Neither Gordon or his brother Robert are capable of leading but Clay is. Clay doesn't want to be a leader but he knows he's the best man for the job.
When this whole thing started Clay had just wanted to get all the supplies they could get, hunker down and wait for the world to reset. That went right out the window when his mother demanded they take food to the church where the survivors from Peabody were. They also brought two steers in a trailer. Clay tried to tell them that as soon as anyone knew they had food others would come looking for their "fair" share. His mother wouldn't be deterred. His father either. Once they got to the church all they heard were complaints that is wasn't enough and one man tried to hijack Clays truck. Clay knocked that fool out and had to pull his M-4 on the crowd so they could leave. Clay knew the fat was in the fire now as everyone at the church now knew they had food and would waste no time telling anyone and everyone all about it. That one act threw a wrench in Clays plans and they just went downhill from there. His family turned out to be his worst enemy.
Five days after the first Committee members rolled in Jody tells Clay they have movement. A beautiful Cadillac is headed there way with two trucks following. The two trucks stop at the edge of the Sanders farm and the car continues on. Gordon tells Clay the owner of the car is a man who would never loan that car to anyone. Clay figures the man "donated" the car to the Committee. The man who owns it is probably dead.
On arrival a man exits the car. Gordon tells Clay he knows the man. Hyatt Holman is his name and he's a snake. Clay can tell his father doesn't like this man at all and the more conversation that flies the more Clay knows it has something to do with his Mother.
Holman tells Gordon he and his men are there to take all the cattle and all the food on the farm. He tells Gordon he will leave him three days worth of food for those at the farm and he will give them ration cards and they will have to come to Peabody for food. He told Gordon all the food from the farm would be taken to Peabody and be distributed to the starving people there.
Jody then told Clay via radio that he saw movement. Two men. One with a rifle. Tandi headed out to intercept them. He killed them both. A sniper and spotter. Clay lost no time telling Holman his sniper and spotter were dead. He then pulled his knife. Holman pissed his pants.
Gordon stopped Clay from knifing the idiot. Holman left and Gordon told Clay he knew Holman very well. He knew how he acted and what he would probably do. Gordon told Clay he knew this man pretty well and it was better to leave him in charge of the Committee than for a new someone they didn't know to lead it.
Clay knew they were in for a war now.
So begins one damned fine read.
This one has Clay, his men and women, Gordon, Angela, the Webbs, the rest of the folks who call the farm home, a group of men and women approaching the farm in the pouring rain demanding food, the men who are using the women as shields, Clay and his men who shoot the men, Angela who demands the women and kids be brought into the farm, a Clay who just can't believe how blind his mother can be, the women who do nothing but complain, the kids who don't belong to those women, a woman named Cheri who thinks she's tough until Victoria Tully kicks her in the chest putting her on her back, the women who pull weapons, a Victoria who kills those with weapons, an Angela who can't believe these people she was trying to help pulled weapons, four of the women who really did have kids, women who were to scared to tell anyone what was actually going on, a Clay who isn't impressed with any of them and want to toss them all out but can't because of the kids, a battle royal at the farm when Holman finally attacks, those at the farm who are more than Holman and his idiots thought they were, a dead Webb son, a Josh Webb who is mad as hell and blames Clay, a Clay who tells him right back that he and the other family heads were the ones who decided who would be where to defend the family cabins, people who defended nothing else, the wounded, the dead and a Webb who leaves the farm with his family, a family who would much rather stay at the farm, a Webb who comes back three weeks later with wounded sons demanding that Clay save the rest of his family and a Clay who knows someone is pulling Webbs strings and tells him no way he and his team are going to the Webb place and Clay Sanders doing his best to protect the farm, deal with his mother, survive and stay alive.
