I just read book one, it's a trilogy SHTF story . It has Martial Law, food riots, even brigands attacking and raiding people at sea who got out in boats .
Worth reading .

Thanks for pointing this out. I added it to my wish list at Amazon and on my public library list.

It was a good read. I finished it a few months ago. I also liked the Axis of Time Trilogy he wrote.

What is "Marshall Law" and who the hell is Marshall? Could it be a western thing (e.g., Marshal Dillon of Gunsmoke)? LOL!!!!!!!

It's the next level of tyranny above martial law. If you live under "Marshall Law", thank a public school.

Amazon reader review:
...Most of the story lines spend far too much time in bang-bang shoot-em-out gunfights (with far too much attention paid to the type of ammo people had) that prompted frequent page-scanning until I could get past all the fluff and back into some story meat...


ARFCOM approved!

Pretty cool book, I can't wait for the sequel. I would also recommend his Axis of Time series. Right now, Birmingham is my favorite author.

It was funny seeing all the countries enjoying Pax Americana, while loathing us in public, having to finally step up to the plate to defend themselves.

I'm out of town and finished reading WEB Griffin's "Black Ops" and don't have any other reading material. I struck out and Barnes and Noble and it looks like the closest Borders is out of this book also. However, if you're interested I just discovered that Barnes and Noble has "Weapons of Choice" (the first in the Axis of Time trilogy) available as a free eBook download. I just finished downloading it. We'll see what it's like reading a novel on the laptop or Blackberry.

ETA: Cool. Just started reading and already found a reference to my old ship, the USS Leyte Gulf.
