John Thomas Rourke, M.D., ex-CIA Covert Operations Officer, weapons expert, and survival authority is on the move again – searching for a cache of eighty megaton warhead missiles secreted on the New West Coast.
It begins with a firefight between Brigands and a unit of the U.S. II armed forces, a battle that ends with Rourke, and a seriously wounded Natalia, taking refuge on a submarine.
The sight of the sunken remains of San Francisco is a grisly reminder of the Night of the War; the horde of half-dressed savages waiting on the shore, a deadly example of the madness of this brutal post-holocaust world.
Surrounded now by murderous madmen and threatened by a mysterious officer who has been travelling with him, Rourke must call on all his training to escape and continue the search for his family. He must go on – he is The Survivalist.
