Planes are falling from the sky. Global communications have ceased. America stands on the brink of war with China—but war is the least of humankind’s concerns.

About the Author
Jeff Carlson was born on the day of the first manned moon landing and narrowly escaped being named Apollo, Armstrong, or Rocket. His father worked for NASA-Ames at the time. His granddad on his mother’s side was a sci fi fan whose library included autographed copies of Isaac Asimov’s Foundation trilogy. Both men were strong, early influences—and in the high tech 21st Century, it’s easy to stand with one foot in reality and the other in thriller novels.
Jeff is the internationally bestselling author of Interrupt, Plague Year, and The Frozen Sky, hailed by Publishers Weekly as “Pulse pounding.” To date, his writing has appeared in fifteen languages worldwide.
