Michael R. - If there ever was a story that predicted a very possible future this is it. Anyone who has studied the markets and understands the world of finances locally, and internationally will find this manuscript compelling. Pass it on to anyone you know who has a hard time grasping the current financial situation as they may be able to begin to understand what it all means couched in this story.
Jack.F. - I read it twice. once for entertainment and once to take notes.
Terry.S. - I am getting too old to be reading books till 4 or 5am. I couldn't put it down.
James W. - European banks melting down as the countries do; Greece, BNP Paribas, SocGen, we are watching what we are reading.
Steve.F. - I am enthralled by his thinking as well as his writing.
Linda T - It's a beautiful manuscript. I've never seen another as good in my professional experience as an Editor. I'm pretty much of an expert on "apocalyptic fiction" and this is a fantastic thriller even if it isn't gore every other page. It may even be an entirely new genre.

Welcome to my website.
The seeds of a global perfect storm are sewn. Scientists caution of potential mega quakes, super disease, volcanic eruptions or solar flares. Population growth and industrial activities increasingly stress the environment. One Middle Eastern state after another erupts in civil war. (Sound familiar?)
And most insidious of all, the governments, central banks and banking industries of every developed country on the globe have been systematically building funeral pyres of paper under their respective economies, building them ever higher over the course of decades with mountains of debt, printed money and derivatives, just waiting for a spark, a match, a stray bolt of lightning...
In the novel, the protagonist, elite headhunter Gary Alden didn't have a crystal ball, just a comprehensive study of the demise of empires past. He'd watched the alarming parallels with current events developing for some time. But he was one of very few. The vast majority don't like to hear that the party is over, and aren't apt to listen until it's too late.
So, when the pyres do burst into flame, Gary must marshal his family and his resources - especially his expertise in recruiting specialists in various fields - to navigate a gauntlet of economic and social calamity, build a new community and preserve what they can of a modern standard of living before the ashes of another fallen empire scatter in the wind.
