Publisher's Summary

The apocalypse slowly rolled across the world without much notice, except for the riots and looting. There weren't any bombs, EMP blasts, grid failure, or natural disasters to blame, as you always find in those post-apocalyptic novels.

At 58 years old, Jeff Mann had read dozens of those apocalyptic sci-fi novels, and all were wrong. The cause was the incompetence of the world's governments and the failure of the many financial Ponzi schemes. First, the riots and looting came, and then starvation and depravity followed. The billionaires built safe compounds while everyone else died off or fought to survive the holocaust at the end of the modern world. 

Jeff begins a crusade against human trafficking after saving two women from slavers. Can one man and two women make a difference in a world gone mad?

A great start to a new series!

A.J. Newman did another great job starting a new series. I absolutely enjoyed this story and look forward to the next in the series. Audio Version: B.C. Archer did a wonderful job narrating!

A different apocalypse

This one is very different from most books in this genre. Fairly clean for an old man’s fantasy. Lots of action and ingenuity without the delta force superhero common to post apocalyptic stories.
Narration was decent but took some getting used to.
I can easily recommend this book.
I received this free review audiobook and I am voluntarily leaving this unbiased review.
