Liberators: A Novel of the Coming Global Collapse

James Wesley, Rawles. Dutton, $26.95 (336p) ISBN 978-0-525-95391-3
Bestseller Rawles’s rousing fifth after-the-apocalypse thriller (after 2013’s Expatriates) finds America headed into “the Crunch,” where inflation is above 100% and rioters are wreaking havoc in all the major cities. A group of allies, including Phil Adams, a Defense Intelligence Agency counterintelligence case officer, and Ray McGregor, an Afghanistan war vet, determine to leave the east coast for destinations where they hope to ride out the coming breakdown of society. After a long trek, they reach British Columbia and settle in to battle invaders—first the French, then the Chinese. Supporters of the “prepper” movement and readers fond of endless weapon descriptions will lap up every detail, from how to ready their “bug-out” bags to building deadly improvised devices. Those who don’t have an antipathy to the government, the school system, gays, and the U.N. may want to stay away. Rawles is the founder and editor of, the nation’s most popular survivalist blog. Agent: Robert Gottlieb, Trident Media Group. (Oct.)
