Über diesen Titel:

Inhaltsangabe: Four missiles are launched from container ships off the coast of the continental US. When the nuclear warheads detonate at 200km altitude in quick succession, a massive electromagnetic pulse (EMP) is unleashed. Five thousand civilian aircraft fall from the skies, three million pacemakers stop pumping, and the US power grid crashes...for good. In the aftermath of the attack, social order breaks down rapidly as people realize they are on their own with no hope of rescue.  Follow Joe and Eric as they flee from death and destruction in search of a safe haven; only to find that the chaos has followed them home. Meanwhile, a thousand miles away, Commander Terry Price must use all of his skills and technical savvy to track down who is responsible, and bring them to justice.

From the Author: I want to thank you for taking the time to check out my first published work, Officer of the Watch.  This is the first book in the Blackout Series and deals with the immediate aftermath of the EMP attack.  This book is the result of conversations I've had with active duty and retired military personnel, law enforcement officers, disaster readiness specialists, friends, and family. 

When looking at disaster situation in the recent past, one thing that stands out is how rapidly social order devolves into chaos.  In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, the situation in New Orleans was so desperate that people were killing each other over bottled water within a week.  And this is just one example of how quickly life can go from modern, polite society to a desperate struggle to survive.  While an EMP attack is considered a low probability risk by the intelligence and security community, it is also considered one of the highest impact risks that the United States, and the world as a whole face today.

My father was a twenty-three year veteran of the United States Navy and served in military logistics and intelligence for more than fifteen years after his official retirement.  There were only two things that used to make him lose sleep at night as far as real, direct threats to the United States are concerned....A release of small pox virus, and an EMP attack.  My conversations with my father are where the idea for this series came from, and that's one reason I dedicated this initial installment in the Blackout Series to him.  Without his calm, rational counsel and advice, none of this would have been possible.

I wanted this series to be entertaining, first and foremost.  I want the readers to connect with the people and the characters in the story, many of whom were modeled after people in my own life.  I also wanted to provide a way to expose the audience to some real-world dangers and risks that are frightening and uncomfortable to confront.  And, finally, I hope that by reading this book, and the others that will follow in the series, the reader may come away with a new perspective on making sure they are ready to provide for themselves in the event that a disaster or catastrophe should strike. 
For more information on EMP attacks and the threats they pose you can read the EMP Commission Report produced by Congress available on the web for free download.  This report details the real-world risk that an EMP poses and how dramatically such an event could impact modern life. 

Thanks again for reading, and God Bless!
D W McAliley
