Despite all the warning bells, Black Friday arrives as a devastating tidal wave that completely destroys our fragile economy in a single day. There is panic in the streets as banks close their doors, seemingly forever, at noon. Store shelves are swept bare and the gas pumps soon run dry. Jimmy Logan watches in disbelief as his world crumbles before his eyes. Luckily, he has friends who have planned ahead for this nightmarish scenario and he joins up with a group who plan to ride the storm out in northern Minnesota. Some of their group will be dead before the sun sets.

Jimmy soon finds himself in the battle of his life. The world changes in a single day and there seems to be no going back. People want what they have and they are willing to do anything, even kill, to get it. The government responds to the crisis by using the National Guard to round up the population and to secure them in relocation camps. Those who resist are shot.

This is Jimmy's story, but the premise might have been torn from today's headlines. The diverse group of people in this story could be your neighbors; your relatives, and this is a very realistic look at what the future might hold for all of us. What would you do to feed your family if you suddenly found that your life savings was as worthless as yesterday's newspaper? How far would you go to protect what you had, in case it was all that stood between you and starvation? Desperate Times explores these questions from Jimmy's point of view, the result is a thought-provoking story that may change the way you look at the world.

    " So far it's pretty good. Kind of scary in a "could it really happen" kind of way. It's based in MN and is about a national government shutdown. Very interesting considering MN current situation. "

    " Wow, the ending seemed a little unorganized and the dialogue fell flat in places. Good ideas, just poorly conveyed. "

    " I suspect something like this will happen in the last days, or even sooner. But the poor writing/editing made this book a bit painful. Nevertheless, food storage is on my mind! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Samantha Blair | 1/20/2014

    " This is a fantastic and terrifying read. Driven by very real life imagery that is spot on for current events, Antinozzi has driven a spike right through every American's greatest fears with this book. This all-too-possible survival story is well written and fast paced. I'm not a fan of the ending. Without spoiling it, I'll just say that the last chapter was a little far fetched after such a realistic book, but I would definitely read a sequel. This warning will have you stocking canned goods in your basement and buying as many guns as you can lay claim too. An excellent start for a new writer. "
