In the waning years of the American Empire when the liberties represented in the Bill of Rights are a fading memory, the nations reckless spending had left it in economic ruin. The United States is unable to repay its debts. China has come seeking payment in real assets, and they mean business. Chaos reigns; power has been cut; select cities have been destroyed with nuclear bombs; and burned out houses occupy neighborhoods like rotting teeth in the mouth of a crack addict.
Cliffson Lang’s son attempts to escape the fires and mobs overrunning the city of Seattle. When Cliffson is called away to help, his other son is kidnapped by occupying forces and placed in a work camp. Truth’s Blood is the Lang family’s story of survival as the United States experiences the disintegration of society. Their challenge verges on the impossible.
This dystopian story contains no zombies; just typical folks trying to survive. The story is dark and foreboding and at times may feel closer to reality than fiction. Central Oregon residents will recognize many local landmarks.
