A Secret Weapon

 51mj7DtCJtL__SX277_BO1,204,203,200_  An EMP, Electro Magnetic Pulse Weapon is detonated over the continental US and in one second every electronic device is fried. Cars don’t run, phones don’t work, televisions turn off. All communications through every media shut down, permanently. We are suddenly thrown back into the dark ages. Food runs out, no electricity, no medicine. It’s every man for himself.  What would we do? How would be behave? This is the story of one man’s struggle to save his family and his small North Carolina town.

Science fiction? No, it’s an all too real possibility as stated in a foreword by Newt Gingrich and brought to the floor of the US Congress.  The author, William Forstchen, writes a gripping account of what could happen. After reading the terrifying story, I gave serious thought to stocking up on can goods and supplies. Well written and engaging, I recommend this gripping novel to all who want to find out, what if. . .
