Three terrorist attacks are launched from freighters against
the United States. Only one fully succeeds, but in the blink of an eye all of
the country west of the Rocky Mountains is transformed into the technological equivalent
of the eighteenth century—no electricity, no computers, no electronics of any
kind, or any of the amenities of modern life that depend on them. This is the
story of ordinary and extraordinary people, high and low, who struggle to
survive in a mortally wounded nation, as America’s enemies within and without
circle for the kill.
A Latino gangbanger becomes mayor of a devastated Los
Angeles; a gay survivalist fights for his life in San Francisco; an ordinary
Indiana housewife and her three children struggle to keep their lives together
in a crashing economy; a shrimp fisherman in Louisiana watches a mushroom cloud
rise over New Orleans; the admiral in charge of the military defense of the
nation faces a storm of enemies from every corner of the compass; and the president
of the United States and the Speaker of the House of Representatives battle for
supremacy as the lives of sixty million Americans hang in the balance.
Lightning Fall tells a story of terror,
tragedy, and triumph that you will never forget. Download and start listening now!
