WHO WILL DOMINATE THE FINAL BATTLE FOR AMERICA—A FEARLESS SHADOW WARRIOR OR AN ISLAMIC MASTERMIND?
2045: The Islamic Republic and the Bible Belt—the warring nations that arose after the apocalyptic and economic collapse of the United States—are rife with intellectual and social decay, and to the south, the Aztlán Empire threatens encroachment. For genetically enhanced soldier Rakkim Epps, reuniting the factions and regaining America’s former global standing rests on the discovery of a sacred relic lost in the contaminated ruins of Washington, D.C. In this deadly wasteland of diseased zombies and daring treasure hunters, Epps will ultimately face his archenemy, a dying Muslim fanatic who has brilliantly drawn Epps into an explosive showdown, with Epps’s own survival and the fate of the world at stake.
Robert Ferrigno was born in South Florida, a tropical backwater rife with mosquitoes and flying cockroaches. After earning college degrees in philosophy, film-making, and creative writing, he returned to his first love, poker. He spent the next five years gambling full-time and living in a high-crime area populated by starving artists, alcoholics, thieves, and drug dealers, becoming friends with many people who would later populate his novels. Over the next several years he flew jets with the Blue Angels, drove Ferraris, and went for desert survival training with gun nuts. He ultimately gave up his day job to become a novelist, and his first book, The Horse Latitudes, was called “the fiction debut of the season” by Time. He lives in Washington with his family.
