America’s death wasn’t the work of a foreign power; it happened by our own hand.
Torn apart by a violent racial-political Civil War, America has fractured from a United Republic into an array of half functioning city-states under mixed forms of governance. In the Nation of Texas the onetime Lone Star State has degenerated into a lawless plutocracy, the result of an uneasy truce between the Texas Independents and Tea Party.
Duncan Anderson is a former tax attorney who wanders the charred remains of this once proud land, scraping by in existence through collecting recyclable materials. He is neither warrior nor slave; leader nor believer. He is but one man keeping his solitary distance from the bestial madness of the New World, standing silent vigil in hope that order will return again to the land.
He is to be sorely disappointed.
The arrival of a mute youngster throws Duncan’s isolation into chaos and life into danger. As the noose of everyday living tightens around his neck Duncan will increasingly do anything and everything to rid himself of the unwanted intrusions into his world- even if it’s a cost paid for in the suffering of others.
