Description
It starts with the dogs. They won't stop barking. ... And then the earth shrugs -- 8.9 on the Richter scale in the world's biggest earthquake since 1755. It hits New Madrid, Missouri, a sleepy town on the Mississippi. Within minutes, there is nothing but chaos and ruin as America's heartland falls into the nightmare known as the Rift -- a fault line in the earth that wrenchingly exposes the fractures in American society itself. As a strange white mist smelling of sulfur rises from the crevassed ground, the real terror begins for the survivors, including a teenager separated from his mother, an African-American engineer searching for his daughter, a TV preacher whose visions of hell have become all too real, and a sheriff cum Ku Klux Klansman who seeks racial vengeance in the midst of disaster.
-- The author's most recent novel, City on Fire, was nominated for both the Nebula and Hugo awards
-- With a driving plot that depicts epic disaster and lives in crisis, The Rift will appeal to techno-future thriller readers as well as fans of science fiction
