Abstract:

When your worst nightmare comes true ... At four-thirty the phone rang. Graham glanced at his watch and then reached for the receiver, thinking it must be Jackie. Maybe something had come up. "Hello." "Peck?" the male voice said. "Graham Peck?" "Yes?" "This is the Peck who lives on Crown Point in Arlington Heights?" "Sure. There's a problem?" "Yes. I'm Detective Bevins with the police department. Your secretary said to call before I came in. Are you sitting down?" "Sitting down?" Graham grimaced. "Of course, I'm working." "Stay there. I'm outside with your secretary. I'll be right in." "What's going on?" Graham protested. "What's happened?" "I'll explain to you in a moment when I come in your office," Bevins said. "We need you to come home at once." One family's desperate fight for survival in a terrifying new world: millions disappear in an instant. Terrorist attacks, random killings, and unbridled lawlessness soon follow, and a ruthless police state maintains order through nanotechnology and constant electronic surveillance. In this time of crisis, Graham and Jackie Peck struggle to hold their family together, no easy task with their oldest son away, their skeptical teenage daughter doubting everything they tell her, and their two school-age boys oblivious to the dangers threatening them night and day. When the government develops nanorobots capable of seeking out individuals it deems "subversive," a radical group called the New Seekers welcomes the Pecks into their midst. But are they the pious and loving friends they appear to be or a dangerous cult bent on furthering their own agenda in a world gone mad? Graham and Jackie must discover the truth, knowing that the fate of their family-and everyone on Earth-hangs in the balance. And time is running out.
