Description

The New Madrid fault line is one of the deepest, most deadly earthquake zones anywhere in the world. It runs from Memphis to St. Louis, along the Mississippi River. The last time it woke from slumber in 1811 and 1812, it rattled the Earth over 1,000 times throughout a 2-year period, and based upon testimonials from the few people then living in the area, at least 8 of the quakes were 8 or better on today's Richter scale. Geologists had been predicting the New Madrid would shake again, most giving it better than a 50/50 chance by 2025. But Mother Nature didn't want to wait until then. For the residents of Memphis and St. Louis, and all the towns along the Mighty Mississippi, chaos and anarchy were waiting in the wings. With the United States fully involved militarily in the Middle East, making enemies of Islam throughout the World, some had been plotting to strike America when it wasn't expecting it. September 11, 2001 was a sad day, but those now plotting against the "Western Babylon" would seize the opportunity created by a massive earthquake on the New Madrid. And this attack would make 9-11 look like a practice run. A decorated American hero from Desert Storm with three friends, one CNN reporter, a Russian mercenary sniper hired to overturn the table of world power, and anarchy reigning supreme in the Midwest sets the stage as good versus evil and the "haves" versus the "have-nots." With United Nations troops setting up camps on American sovereign soil, the battle lines are drawn and only the strong will survive. As one of our heroines in the story says, "Perhaps the meek will inherit the Earth, but I don't see it happening any time soon."
