In the latest survivalist thriller from founder of survivalblog.com and "New York Times" bestselling author James Wesley, Rawles, two expat families struggle for their very survival in the midst of a global economic collapse.
When the United States suffers a major socioeconomic collapse, a power vacuum sweeps the globe. A newly radicalized Islamic government rises to power in Indonesia, invades the Philippines, East Timor, Papua New Guinea, and finally northern Australia. No longer protected by American military interests, Australia must repel an invasion alone.
In the thick of these political maneuvers, an American family of missionaries living in the Philippines and a Texan petroleum engineer in Australia must face the fear of being strangers in a world in flux. Are their relatives back home healthy and safe? Will they ever see them again?
In its depiction of the authentic survivalist skills and techniques needed to survive a global socioeconomic meltdown, "Expatriates" is as informative as it is suspense-filled.
