Overview

The remnants of society rot. The privileged get a five-hundred calorie meal pack every day. The dead are dumped in landfills, or left where they fall. Thirty-three years after extremists released the engineered virus, the Centers for Disease Control is the last governing body. The transition from finding a cure to administering what is left, never set well with anyone. The resentment may drive the rumors of conspiracy. But too many CDC administrators survive, and any focus of finding a cure appears abandoned.

Jason Kates believes he’s searching for a way to feed the starving that remain in the Eastern cities, but his assignment to cross the lawless lands to reach the American heartland may be a pretense to get him killed. He's an outsider to the CDC hierarchy, and there are dangerous secrets to be kept.

Clueless to what he's facing, and suicidal, Jason partners with a road-wise girl who tries to carjack him. He needs the value of her harsh experiences. She needs the nutrition bars he carries. Their sarcasm-laced relationship grows as they careen through evermore dangerous obstacles. They discover little more than empty prairie until they stumble upon the proof of conspiracy, which propels Jason into a far more challenging role.

Meet the Author

R. Mac Wheeler (skip the 'R' if you're calling him for dinner, or most anything else) has jumped out of planes, driven motorcycles like an idiot, shot lots of guns (never with ear protection, what?), ridden helicopters, rappelled down cliffs, explored mine shafts, skied on water and snow, kayaked, had surgery on both knees and shoulders (thanks mostly to basketball), and moved across the continent. Most days lately though his weekly excitement entails a two hour motorcycle ride with his Labrador, Molly (she wears Doggles; gets lots of camera action). Otherwise he mostly sits quietly eight hours a day allowing his rather sane but free flowing mind to cast plot ideas one after another.

A native Texan (and proud of it; don't mess with Texas), Mac has called South Florida home for the past twenty-five years (ahh, no dust storms, just inconvenient hurricanes), where he and his wife lovingly bicker about most everything (like folks in their fifties are supposed to) between laughing at their three goofy dogs.

A former computer programmer, project manager, and all-around nerd, Mac now focuses full time on science fiction, fantasy, and paranormal that leverages the quirkiness and emotions of real life more often than the farfetched.

    I'm not sure what genre this book falls under. It's set in a world similar to Stephen King's "The Stand," at least 30 years later, but without the weird stuff going on. Would that make it horror? I'm not sure. It certainly had some scary elements. I thought there might be a little romance in there, too since all Jason ever thinks about is having sex (haha), yet it's kind of skimmed over. :( But I really liked the characters and the story kept me more than interested.
