Gritty, graphic, fatal, heart-pounding, dangerous--what is left but survival? One year after New York City collapsed in a fiery blast, and most of the few remaining succumbed to airborne plague, still a few hardy or sneaky survive. Nostradamus (Nos) Greene and young daughter Naomi are among them; his wife and two adolescent sons died in the destruction. Nos carries on in order to protect Naomi, his Special Forces background all too often handy. This novel is not just about post-apocalyptic survival; it's living with the memories of loss.
