A Desperate Journey In a World Gone Insane
When an EMP produced by a massive solar flare fries the electrical grid, Captain Jordan Hughes’ problems are just starting. Stranded far from home with a now-priceless cargo of fuel and a restless crew, Hughes weighs his options as violence worsens ashore and the world crumbles around the secure haven of his ship, the Pecos Trader.
‘Wait and see,’ isn’t an option. Hughes must get his ship and crew home — but FEMA arrives with other plans.
Resisting an increasingly corrupt and self-serving federal bureaucracy, Hughes leads a hastily formed and ragtag little band of sailors, preppers, and dissident military personnel on a desperate voyage to reunite them all with home and family – only to find their real journey is just beginning.

About the Author:
Seaman, entrepreneur, expatriate, and inveterate story-teller, R.E. (Bob) McDermott capped a long and varied career of international work and travel by turning to his secret passion, writing. Bob had the good fortune (and sometimes misfortune) of knowing more than a few interesting characters during his career, and bits and pieces of them populate his novels.
A master of the reluctant hero, McDermott’s protagonists are both fallible and human – not superheroes, just ordinary people who screw up, but rise to life’s challenges in extraordinary situations.
Bob lives on the outskirts of Nashville, Tennessee with his patient wife (and chief proofreader) and splits his time between their condo on Old Hickory Lake and a rural retreat he’s preparing in case the lights DO go out for good and we’re all eating possum and pine cones.
