All empires eventually fall...
The United States is no exception...
And out of the embers, a lawless new empire will rise...


Across the world, the United States recalls troops to combat civil unrest after the biggest economic meltdown in history. Marine Sergeant Ronaldo Salvatore's platoon comes home to a powder keg that could ignite a civil war.

While some see the coming collapse as the end, others see opportunity. Fleeing Naples after rival crime lords decimated his family, Don Antonio Moretti settles in Los Angeles to rebuild his criminal empire. But he is far from alone in his ambitions--the cartel and rival gangs all want the same turf, and they will sacrifice their own soldiers and the blood of innocents to get it.

As open warfare erupts across the states, Salvatore fights his way back to LA, where his son has joined the police in the battle for a city spiraling into anarchy. Family is everything, and the Morettis and Salvatores will do what they must to protect their own. But how far will they go to survive in a new economy where the only currency is violence?

The explosive new Sons of War series is a harrowing and realistic depiction of what a second American Civil War and the aftermath might look like, from former Homeland Security Disaster Mitigation Officer and New York Times bestselling author Nicholas Sansbury Smith.

Praise for this book

"The Sopranos meets Mad Max ... In a fresh take on the apocalypse, Nicholas Sansbury Smith's Sons of War presents the end of America as a time of horror, transformation, and, for one enterprising crime family, opportunity. Smith's smooth prose and tough cast of characters keep the pages turning at a thriller pace. Never has the end of the world as we know it been so fun to read." - Craig DiLouie

"Nicholas Sansbury Smith is the undisputed master of fresh, page-turning postapocalyptic thrillers. Smith reboots the genre with Sons of War, a cleverly designed, tirelessly engaging story of societal collapse -- told from an unexpected and ground-breaking point of view. Sons of War grabs you from the first pages and doesn't let go." - Steven Konkoly

"Jam-packed with compelling characters thrown into a chaotic world of kill or be killed, Sons of War seizes the genre in a death grip!" - D J Molles

"A Mafia family, a team of Marines, and the army of a rogue president fighting it out on the streets of Los Angeles during an apocalypse? That's a hell of a cocktail!" - David Pedreira

"Nicholas Sansbury Smith's captivating new postapocalyptic mobster series starts with a daringly original, high-octane bang. An engaging cast of characters you will root for--even when you shouldn't." - Don Winslow
