What would it take for the United States to fall from within? In a not too distant future, America is put to the test. With the American people deep in The Second Great Depression and two of the most powerful hurricanes on record to contend with, the United States is in no condition to deal with hidden terrorists on its soil, maniacal politicians, and the most formidable military threat the world has seen since the Third Reich.

This is the story of three men from three very different walks of life: Howard Beck, the world's richest man, also diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome; Richard Dupree, ex-Navy SEAL turned escaped convict; and Maxwell Harris, a crippled, burned-out chief of police of a small Texas town. At first, they must overcome their own struggles and fight for their survival against impossible odds. In the end, the unlikely trio must band together to save their beloved country from COLLAPSE.

Empires topple. 
Nations crumble. 
Civilization is fragile. 
In 2027, America will fall.

BOOK TWO in the New America series,

Here's what

Fans are saying

I originally picked this up for free during a Kindle promotion, and as I type this review I see the pricing has reverted back to $2.99: you will absolutely get a heck of a lot more value out of it than $2.99, as this one rates right up with the thrillers by the "brand name" authors.

As Scary as it is Plausible

Author Richard Stephenson has hit one out of the park with his novel, Collapse. Watch the America we know literally collapse under the weight of natural disasters, rouge nations and damned scary power-hungry politicians.

I found Collapse to be entertaining, intriguing and scary as hell. To say that the premise of the novel is believable would be an understatement. Although it takes place in 2027, there is not reason that most of this (except Beck's AI technology) couldn't happen in the next six months. Keeping that thought in the back of my mind helped to propel me through reading this book in just a few sittings.

Collapse is rich with sub-plots that seamlessly converge and everyone ends up where they're supposed to be. I enjoyed reading the book and was excited to see that the ending leaves the door wide open for a sequel.

Author Bio

Richard Stephenson 

Richard Stephenson was born in 1975 in Denison, TX and spent his childhood in North Texas. In 1992, he graduated high school after only three years. He then pursued his degree at Oklahoma Christian University, once again accomplishing the task in three years. Richard then married his best friend before going off to basic training to be a military policeman with the US Army. With his new wife joining the adventure, they spent the next four years at Fort Polk, LA and had two children. 

Just before his son turned five, Richard and his wife were told that their oldest child had Asperger's Syndrome. Nine years later, Richard's son would become the inspiration for the character of Howard Beck. 

After leaving the armed forces, Richard continued his law enforcement career in the federal sector and has been with the Department of Justice for thirteen years.
