Basically, the plot of the story is that ISIS sends 100 small teams of operatives to destroy valuable infrastructure in the USA such as refineries, electric grid auto-transformers, bridges, dams, and internet peering points in one night. Life in America immediately transforms for worse as the electrical grids and communication grids die and the various governmental agencies seize the remaining automobile and truck fuel. Food immediately becomes scarce as the stores are cleaned out and there is no fuel for the trucks to resupply them.
The level of violence in the book is simply amazing as our protagonists are walking, riding, and walking to their respective homes 200+ miles away from Richmond, Virginia where they were attending a conference. The journey home takes weeks. My former USMC son believes that most people have less than three days of food in the house based on his experiences with his fellow Marine's families. That does not bode well for national shortages of food and fuel to get it around the country.
Even getting home was not kind to our surviving protagonists as their homes are very subject to people looking for food and weapons. That RV park down the road gets pretty rough when people are starving. Or coming down off their Prozac, meth, etc.
Biggest bad guy was the unrepentant, uneducated carrier criminal (who just happens to be the brother of some of the trailer trash baddies from the first book).
Jim and his crew makes a lot of errors that he had previously warned against, even going so far as loosing almost all their hard earned supplies (once again) by getting drunk and setting a bonfire on the side of a mountain. Thank goodness the men kept their bugout bags.
Women are portrayed as generally weak and emotional. Even so far as to have him count on the women in his office building (when they finally arrived) to have snacks for him to pilfer. Even his wife and the "tough girl" with him were basically "helpless tough".
