Josh Standing took an oath to serve and protect those of their North Carolina community. That didn’t change when he left the police force to become a probation officer. But his drive to rescue tomorrow’s troubled youth has created a rift between him and his wife, Maxine, that he’s not sure he can fix. Now Josh again finds himself torn between his duty and his family—stuck on a ship in the Atlantic with his daughter, tom-boy Tally, and 10 young offenders when the EMP hits.
Nurse Maxine’s greatest concern is to ensure their son, Storm, survives the cancer that has ravaged his body over the last year. She has taken the once promising athlete to face the diagnosis of the Boston doctors, miles from the family home. But the danger that awaits them in the chaos of a city without power and a crazed population is worse than any doctor’s final pronouncement.
