Law and order quickly breaks down as the value of the dollar crumbles. Store shelves are bare and fuel is prohibitively expensive when available. An underground economy starts to emerge, but government intervention quickly outlaws its activity. The greenbacks keep rolling off the presses and the entire free trade system implodes.
This is the backdrop for an excellent thriller and I eagerly await Mr. Grice's next book.
Note - I suppose I'm getting used to reading self-published books because the spelling and grammatical errors don't phase me a bit. There were a few times when I had to re-read a sentence, but it certainly wasn't difficult considering what a page-turner this book is. Beggars can't be choosers, and if one limits oneself to only reading polished works by major publishers, one would be missing out on a lot.
The book centers on the coming financial collapse and four characters around that. One is a regular guy with nothing special about him. He's not in the patriot movement at all, not a survivalist or weapons expert, and has only a regular guy's worries about his wife and child. Another is a disturbed veteran soldier and his comrade in arms, whose beyond disturbed and into the psychotic. Finally, there's the lawman, an Under Sheriff who takes himself and his badge a little too seriously and his estranged wife, a Deputy of the U.S. Treasury.
The story weaves around these characters as the financial collapse hits America and the people slowly realize the end is nigh. Most of the action takes place around Denver, Colorado as the soldiers are brought home to quell the "rebellion" and bring order - usually amounting to the slaughter of civilians and mass desertions of both professional soldiers and National Guard.
Mostly, though, the story revolves around the everyman and his quest to get his family through the collapse intact. He is both helped and hindered along the way by the others in the story. He works to get through what he must do amidst gasoline shortages, food shortages, parasitic government employees, etc.
In the end, this is a great book and very well worth reading.
The story unfolds rapidly with building excitement, suspense & drama. Essentially the Fed's print too many dollars, cause hyperinflation, then shortages, civil unrest & an ugly martial law. Great writing though, as the novel follows several different characters working through the mess: soldier, sheriff, gov't exec, suburban couple, etc.
Can't remember the last time I read a novel & was sorry to see it end. You won't be disappointed.
I am looking forward to reading other books by Author Grice. .
In response to the negative ratings, the book did not come across as a rant at all and I think the only one star ratings are from people who sharply disagree with the author's politics. That is not a valid way to critique a book.

A very interesting read on the frailty of humanity to do the right thing, while there are some who choose to walk a path of honor. The story ended far too abruptly. Read morePublished 6 days ago by Ghost Dancer
