(The fourth book in the Kelly Turnbull series)
A novel by

After People’s Republic, after Indian Country, after Wildfire…

Kelly Turnbull is back, armed and dangerous, for the Collapse.

The socialist People’s Republic is falling apart, held together only by the murderous thugs of the blue states’ government. The communist Chinese want to carve off a colony in North America, and the United States is mobilizing for war to stop it and to finally reunify the country split apart a decade before.

As hunger and violence sweep across what had once been Golden State, Kelly Turnbull must undertake his most daring mission yet. With his trusty .45, some old friends, and an elite team of operators, he faces a terrifying new enemy and a deadly old one as the battle to restore the United States of America climaxes in the ruins of the People’s Republic’s western capital city of San Francisco.

Deadlier than ever, Kelly Turnbull is going to settle old scores and new ones too, shooting first, then shooting again before bothering to ask questions later. From blue Hawaii to the red Florida Keys, from the USS Teddy Roosevelt’s berth in San Diego to the Supermax prison in Colorado, Kelly Turnbull does what he does best…

It’s all-out war, this time in the midst of blue America’s total Collapse.


“The fast-paced action of a Brad Thor thriller blended with a dystopian future worthy of Orwell…a roller coaster ride through a post-election Hellscape that will leave you wanting more.” ~ Cam Edwards

“Schlichter puts a whole flight of Black Swans in the air – each of them plausible – and the result is a riveting, page-turner….” ~ Hugh Hewitt

“Every couple of pages there’s some hilarious twist of how today’s controversies played out within a few decades, walking the line between genuine dystopian nightmare and hilarious social satire.” ~ Jim Geraghty

"Appalling." ~ Bill Kristol
