"Air Force One crashes into the sea, with the US President aboard. Is it an accident? Yellowstone National Park erupts in the most devastating volcanic catastrophe ever known. But, when evidence points to foreign terrorists, vengeance is swift and merciless. Guided by ruthless commercial interests, a new American President imposes martial law on a starving, demoralized population and plunges the nation into an overseas race against Russia and China to seize control of the world's most valuable remaining natural resources. Darkness falls across the globe, society collapses, liberty vanishes, and soon forces wielding unfettered power are transforming the United States into the greatest threat to global survival. After months of isolation in the Sudanese desert, Lieutenant Adam Burch learns that his parents have gone missing. Risking execution, he deserts his post and journeys back home to a shocking new American landscape. There he uncovers the chilling truth behind an imperialistic agenda responsible for casually extinguishing the lives of millions through starvation, enforced slavery and nuclear reprisal. Despite what Adam learns, it may already be too late, to rescue the world from its ...darkest days."
