New Order Apocalypse by R. Mac Wheeler

Thirty-three years after the onslaught of an engineered plague that has shredded Earth's population, technology keeps a starving few on the eastern seaboard going, where the death rate from the virus slows only because there are few alive who it is designed to kill.

Jason Kates is recruited to join the inner circle that controls what's left of civilization. A distrusted outsider, Jason's forced into a mission west to learn if there is anyone left in the heartland, if fields are tilled. He's not expected to survive. His journey diverges from an exploration for food, to man's last chance of survival--New Order.

About 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.
