When the system fails, will you fight to survive?

Sam Wade is on a trip to reconnect with his estranged daughter studying in Boston when the interconnected U.S. infrastructure is crippled by an unknown attacker. As the internet, communication networks and the power grid go down, the world is soon thrown into turmoil and danger. Faced with no other choice than to battle their way home through a country on the verge of collapse, Sam and his daughter will have to face more than a troubled past -- the future is deadly.

December 2015 -- The Ukraine experiences a devastating cyber attack on its power grid that leads to widespread power outages.

July 2016 -- Hackers bombard the aviation sector with over 1,000 attacks per month and remotely control and paralyze a Jeep on the highway.

August 2017 -- The Irish power grid, U.S energy companies and a nuclear power plant are digitally assaulted, and the US Government accuses Russia.

March, 2018 -- Atlanta is hobbled for five days, a troubling precursor to a larger attack that would tear a hole in the infrastructure and bring the country to its knees.

Today -- The internet, communication network, and power grid go down and silence and darkness dominates the nation.

Here's another unfinished post-apocalyptic story, ending in a mild cliffhanger. It gets very tiresome, especially considering the plot follows the formula for the genre, making it rather trite. Likewise, the characters all fit the stereotype.

Kevin Pierce performs competently as usual. Hopefully, I'll have the opportunity to review the rest of this story.

NOTE: I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
