Overview

As Chaos Reigns, a Family Unites... Horror comes to Florida when a distraught, dishonorably discharged soldier sets in motion a diabolical plan to avenge a slain comrade. He is determined to kill as many fellow Americans as possible, in his own form of jihad. The results of his actions cause panic, and the loss of many lives, as local governments collapse, and the state's resources are exhausted. Federal help is sent, and martial law is declared. In the middle of all this turmoil, Carl, his divorced wife and teenaged son find themselves forced by circumstances to live together again. They are joined by his friends and some strangers to fight for their mutual survival. They all must learn to work together and depend on each other's strengths, but at the same time, they have to cover for each other's weaknesses. As Carl and his family learn how to navigate a world thrown into chaos, he realizes that he has been subconsciously searching for what he threw away many years ago. From the ashes of his past, he tries to reignite the embers of the burning love he shared with his ex-wife. A tale of personal redemption and of what people are capable of under extraordinary circumstances, The Dream, is a richly characterized and deftly plotted novel that action and suspense fans will enjoy.
