Heather O'Grainne is the Assistant Secretary in the Office of Future Threat Assessment, investigating rumors surrounding something called "Daybreak." The group is diverse and radical, and its members have only one thing in common-their hatred for the "Big System" and their desire to take it down. Now, seemingly random events simultaneously occurring around the world are in fact connected as part of Daybreak's plan to destroy modern civilization-a plan that will eliminate America's top government personnel, leaving the nation no choice but to implement its emergency contingency program...Directive 51.

Professional reviews

"A post-apocalyptic story like this often demands that a narrator evoke its dark and gritty reality in her performance. In this audiobook, Susan Ericksen's attempts to capture atmosphere do not quite work. The story focuses on a small research center that is working to reunite a fractured United States in the aftermath of the biological and chemical destruction of modern technology. Telling the story through the eyes of facility's leader, Heather O'Grainne, Ericksen makes sense of the narrative but delivers it with a brittle intensity--even during the more personal and intimate moments. Her vocalizing of male characters proves equally problematic, with an overemphasis on projecting a deep voice. L.E. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine"
