A perfect storm of trouble is brewing…
Cut off from the crumbling civilization outside its walls, the first Federal University and Research Complex is facing problems of its own. Mysterious power outages, disrupted communications, and a rash of illness among the guards are only the beginning. Soon FURC Security Chief Anthony Nelson and his small, mostly inexperienced staff are overwhelmed by the hacking of the local network, the contamination of the food supply, and a seemingly impossible murder. And Lt. Katherine Miles can't help. She's far from the FURC on a secret mission and unable to warn them—if she can make it back at all, she'll be bringing even more trouble with her…

About the Author
James Litherland is a graduate of the University of South Florida who currently resides as a Virtual Hermit in the wilds of West Tennessee. He’s lived various places and done a number of jobs – he’s been an office worker and done hard manual labor, worked (briefly) in the retail and service sectors, and he’s been an instructor. But through all that, he’s always been a writer. He is a Christian who tries to walk the walk (and not talk much.)

Litherland picks up right where he left off in the previous novel in the series and continues on his imaginative journey. Not only does Litherland create an intriguing premise and well thought out plot here, he continues to build the world in which his characters live. With each chapter it becomes more and more vivid. I enjoyed the fact that there were simultaneously different stories going on inside and outside of the compound throughout the novel. Litherland ties them together while also highlighting the differences between the situations. The characters that Litherland developed in the 1st novel of the series continue to grow and morph throughout this novel, while also remaining the same people they we originally met. The continuous character development really allowed me to feel as if I knew the characters better at the end of the novel than I did at the beginning. Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.
The characters are well developed with quite a cast that at times is a little hard to keep up with. The story line has a lot of suspense and action with a good build up for the finale which has you on the edge of your seat. Plot and dialogue and plausible and logical. I have enjoyed getting into this series and will be reading book 3 soon. I received this from the author for an honest review. No compensation involved. Well done!
