NEW YORK GOES DARK IN THE DEAD OF WINTER…
A TERRIFYING MYSTERY BEGINS…
BUT WHO IS THE ENEMY? AND WILL THEY STRIKE AGAIN?
Mike Mitchell is an average New Yorker struggling just to keep his family together when a string of disasters shreds the bustling megacity around them.
The Internet and communication networks go down…a deadly epidemic rages across the country…then a monster snowstorm cuts New York off from the world.
Days go by without contact to the outside world. Then weeks. Murder and vigilante justice replace law and order. Millions fight to survive.
In the chaos, conspiracy theories rage about a foreign cyberattack. Was it the North Koreans? The Russians? The Chinese? Might it be the first shockwave of a global shift in power? But even these questions become unimportant as Mike and his family struggle for survival in the wintry tomb of a doomed New York.
