The Amsterdam Directorate The Perseid Collapse The

August 2019 Six years after his community was decimated by the Jakarta Pandemic Reverend Jacob Craft awakens to a new nightmare With a brilliant flash in the western sky the lights in Amsterdam go out automobiles fail and anything plugged into the grid is rendered useless But that's only the beginning Rising over the mountains east of their home a fiery mushroom cloud precedes an earthquake and a fierce windstorm What on earth is happening? Unaware that the United States has been the victim of a carefully crafted cyber attack Jacob sets out to fix the failed back up systems that will keep his fragile community from tearing itself apart from within But enemies from the not so distant past have other ideas and soon Jacob is locked in a battle for the future of his quiet country hamlet As questions about the world's immediate future loom large and events go from bad to worse who will win and at what cost?

    I first became acquainted Ian Graham through his Black Shuck thrillers and was intrigued when I heard that he would be one of the debut authors of the Perseid Collapse Kindle WorldAnd I was not disappointed indeed Graham's thriller writing skills are possibly on their best display yet in this post apocalyptic novella as he paints a swift but compelling portrait of a community devastated by a pandemicnow on the brink of a new disaster reminiscent of the scenario painted in William R Forstchen's One Second After The war weariness of Reverend Jacob Craft the veteran leader of the Amsterdam Directorate is palpable as the story races to its cliffhanger of a conclusion leaving readers to anticipate Part 2Highly recommended Five stars
