Publisher's Summary

When Jason Walker and his dog MMax are both badly injured in an IED explosion while serving in the European war in 2038, they are evacuated back to the United States for the chance to recuperate and heal.

But before the two can reach the relative safety of their designated VA hospital in Tennessee an EMP blast creates havoc and brings down their plane, leaving them alone and vulnerable amidst the chaos of a country that is on the verge of complete and utter social collapse.

Now the two must somehow find their way home, to a town where Jason's mother Jan continues to hold out hope of his survival and where the attractive but romantically distant Billie Johnson clings on in a fragile and dangerous existence with her 12-year-old son. 

Jason and MMax certainly have the skills needed to survive in the hostile surroundings they now find themselves in, but in a world gone mad, where life clings on by a thread and people will kill for a few scraps of food, can they make it home alive? And if they can, will there be anything left to return to?

Ten slash 22????

I wish these voice preformers would get some technical advisors to correct their gun verbiage. A Ruger 10/22 is called a "ten twenty two". A 30-06 is called a "thirty odd six". It detracts from the authenticity of characters.

Throughly enjoye

I listened to this audibook while driving to Oklahoma. I chuckled to find myself driving through the setting of the book as I listened to it. I enjoyed getting to know Jason Walker and Max as they struggled to get back home. The author does a great job making the characters personable and easy to get to know. The narrator did an excellent job bringing the story to life. This story is excellent and the author did a wonderful job pulling the listener into Jason's world. I can't wait to listen to the next book to find out if Jason finds the rest of his family. Who knows. Maybe I will be listening to it as I drive back through Tennessee in a few weeks.

This book kept my attention all the way through. It is a very gripping read and I cannot wait to listen to book 2.
