Fury In the Ashes

by William W. Johnstone

The politicians had told them that all the major cities of the world had been destroyed, and it was only years later that Ben Raines and his legion of dedicated warriors found out the politicians had lied. The vast metropolises of America's West Coast had become bastions of evil-seemingly impregnable strongholds for hordes of mutant Night People and thousands of well-trained, well-armed punk street gangs eager to fight all those who threatened their empires of lust and murder. Now it is up to Ben Raines and his army to mop up California from San Francisco to Lost Angeles, annihilate the forces of world anarchy, strike a final blow for freedom's cause, and make any sacrifice necessary so that humankind might survive the Fury Of The Ashes.
