America is falling, ready to join the Roman Empire as a distant memory in the annals of history. The year is 2027. Tired and desperate, the American people are deep in the middle of The Second Great Depression. The Florida coastline is in ruins from the most powerful hurricane on record; a second just like it is bearing down on the state of Texas. For the first time in history, the Middle East has united as one and amassed the most formidable army the world has seen since the Third Reich. A hidden army of terrorists is on American soil. This is the story of three men: Howard Beck, the world’s richest man, also diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome. Richard Dupree, ex-Navy SEAL turned escaped convict. Maxwell Harris, a crippled, burned out Chief of Police of a small Texas town. At first they must fight for their own survival against impossible odds. Finally, the three men must band together to save their beloved country from collapse.

"Outstanding futuristic thriller." "Mr. Stephenson grabs you - literally pulls you - directly into the novel and gets your pulse racing right into the heads of his character." Michael Gallagher, Amazon Hall of Fame Reviewer
"Collapse is a real page-turner. Stephenson does a masterful job of building a suspenseful ending to each chapter and then shifting to another character's story; this makes it difficult to put down this book." Blaise Ciabaton, Editor of TwistedSciFi.com.
"Vivid characters, fast paced story." Lisa Bedford, editor and owner of The SurvivalMom.com and author of Survival Mom: How to Prepare Your Family for Everyday Disasters and Worst-Case Scenarios
