A Chinese cyber-attack and a civilisation on the edge of collapse. A modern city can feed itself for nine days. No more. And when the panic starts… Chinese military hackers target the transport and food distribution systems of the West and unwittingly bring on the end of the world. Cities starve. Continents go dark. And a desperate America launches a devastating counterstrike. In this apocalyptic thriller by best selling author John Birmingham, the arrogance of powerful men pushes the whole world to brink of destruction – and over. Follow a handful of survivors from the first day of our civilisation’s fall into a violent, uncertain future. James O’Donnell, a farm boy turned futures analyst is the first to suspect that a crippling computer virus is actually a cover for something much worse – a devastating cyber-attack by China to cripple and distract the US while Beijing seizes the food bowl of South East Asia to feed her starving peoplea. But Beijing has miscalculated. Follow James and the Deep State’s mysterious Michele Nguyen as they escape a dying Washington. Ride out of Seattle with Jonas Murdoch, an embittered alt-right activist chasing salvation, but strictly on his own terms. Flee a blazing San Francisco with single mother Jodie, her girlfriend El and their little boy Max. And join up with Rick, a traumatised army veteran who long ago retreated from society, as the world turns into the stuff of his nightmares.
