COLLAPSE, a dystopian thriller
America is falling, ready to join the Roman Empire as a distant memory in the annals of history. The year is 2027. Tired and desperate, the American people are deep in the middle of The Second Great Depression. The Florida coastline is in ruins from the most powerful hurricane on record; a second just like it is bearing down on the state of Texas. For the first time in history, the Middle East has united as one and amassed the most formidable army the world has seen since the Third Reich. A hidden army of terrorists is on American soil. This is the story of three men: Howard Beck, the world’s richest man, also diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome. Richard Dupree, ex-Navy SEAL turned escaped convict. Maxwell Harris, a crippled, burned out Chief of Police of a small Texas town. At first they must fight for their own survival against impossible odds. Finally, the three men must band together to save their beloved country from collapse.
Praise from Amazon readers:
Sweeping, character driven apocalypse
"... held me in its grip from start to finish, a fast paced, character driven story that explores the best and worst of humanity.... Most of all, Stephenson tells a riveting tale that starts with a bang and doesn't lose momentum."
Terrifying glimpse of what could be a reality!
.... a post-apocalyptic rollercoaster ride....The fact that it is only 15 years in the future is extremely frightening to me because this book is so realistic."
Dystopian science fiction page-turner
"...Stephenson dares to imagine the worst case scenario ..The ensuing chaos makes for great reading."
As scary as it is plausible
"Author Richard Stephenson has hit one out of the park... entertaining, intriguing and scary as hell."
