In a desperate attempt to be with her boyfriend, Joshua, Jessica had been bicycling hard for two hours. Her father had basically forbidden any further contact. With nothing else to live for, she was on a dangerous journey. It was bad enough to drive through this lawless country with a vintage car. It is more dangerous alone on a bicycle. Jessica had run out of steam. Exhausted, she lay on the side of the road and made peace with the Lord. An EMP blast has littered most roads in the Eastern United States with stalled modern cars. Ben Randall formed a collaborative. They encountered many gangs and had to venture out for food, water, and medicine. This massive apoplectic event left the government unable to cope with the calamity. Most local governments are operating on a skeleton crew at best. Officer Ryan is one of the few who remained at his post in the state of Massachusetts. He was a member of Ben’s collaborative. He coordinated the formation of another collaborative. Driving an antique car, it was a good thirty to thirty-five minute drive. The new collaborative had Daniel as its leader. A man who can speak many languages, a musician, and salesman. The trouble is that he is not a hands-on guy. Adding to the mix is Daniel’s wife who is always at odds with him. Then there is Daniel’s son, Joshua. Ah, Joshua. The apple does not fall far from the tree. Having left college early, Joshua’s dreams were like that of his dad. He was gifted with the gab. He loved sales and meeting people. He was also worldly, speaking many languages. Joshua was confident and handsome. When the two collaboratives meet each other, it is Jessica and Joshua’s encounters that set off a tangled journey. It is a journey through danger and survival. A journey that inflicts family wounds. A trip to other parts of the South shore and eventually to Tent City. Like the first book, Boston Darkens, you will find the story, with its wit and fast-paced action, captivating. Boston Flickers is a story of family, friends, romance, and survival in the upside-down world of a post-EMP attack.
