Overview

What happens when government fiscal mismanagement, resource wars, peak oil, overpopulation, high unemployment and an unexpected shocking and sudden wave of bank failures converge and descend at the same time? It just could mean unimaginable chaos.

This riveting apocalyptic novel tells the exciting story of a young Asian American woman starting another routine, early-morning shift at a downtown Portland, Oregon, Starbucks and finds, as the warm summer morning progresses, that the nation's economy has completely and utterly collapsed and there is absolutely nothing the government or anyone can do about it. The chaos, fear, and horrifying depravation that immediately follow start in the first chapter and move like lightning throughout the entire fast-paced book.

It portrays her journey to seek safety, first for herself, then later for her family as they all flee for their very survival across the Sandy River and into the close-knit, rural farmlands of Corbett, Oregon, where they must work long hours and fight hard as they strive to establish a harsh, new life.

"Buck," is the first sequel to "Shut Down."

"Buck" is the story of Corbett, Oregon, as it struggles to survive two years after the economic collapse portrayed in "Shut down."

This new novel introduces a severely wounded outsider, Michael "Buck" Baccellieri. Buck arrives in Corbett just as the community is threatened by a desperate band of killers.

"First Journey," a story of a winter exploration and the third novel in this series, will be published this fall.

Do not waste your money or time on this poorly written and poorly edited book. About half of the book seems to be the author's regurgitation of the same economic information. There are MUCH better books available for this genre.
