Electrical transformers will burn and a smoke filled night will fall with ominous portents when the next mega solar geomagnetic storm hits. Uncontrolled fires will dance and light up the horizon nationwide as crimson and green auroras fill the skies with dread. Hogan predicts that Atlanta will burn again someday. He knows that the power grid will go down and stay down also some day from the effects of a solar storm EMP. The hero of the story, a business continuity planner has tried to prepare as best he can to escape the city and avoid the nightmare inferno and societal collapse he predicts, but will his preparations be enough? He and his friend Annie cannot escape by highway because of the horrible snarls of traffic jams and the mayhem of panicked people fleeing the encroaching flames. Perhaps the fires will not be as bad as Hogan thinks. Perhaps what fires that are burning and smoldering can be controlled if the city can keep the emergency diesel generators pumping water for the brave firemen still on duty. Annie and Hogan live in the same Apartment complex next to the Chattahoochee River. They think that their boats might end up being the key to their survival to escape the city if the fires do drive them out. It is either flee from this shore or fry they decide.

Number one best-selling novel Last Words is where reality meets fiction and the lines in between are blurred by forbidden love. Amelia - 1942: The inside of my closet held the last bit of my freedom before I was torn from my home and shoved onto a dark train. Our destination was even darker. ´´Women and children to the right. Men to the left,´´ they shouted at us. Everything was taken from me, leaving only the smoke-filled air, piercing screams, and soul-burning cries. I was slowly starved and weakened to the bone, but there was a man - a Nazi - who brought me extra food. He called himself a prisoner too, but he scared me, and I wondered if he was the enemy I should fear the most. Emma - current day: My grandmother hid her past in an old diary under her bed. The tattered, brown leather book sat there for years until she asked me to find it and read her unspoken words. Now, her stories and secrets are consuming every moment of my life. She´s dying...and asking for a man no one in our family has ever heard of. I never imagined a handwritten book could change my entire life, but it has. It opened my eyes to a new beginning, and I learned that love is not the unsaid word my grandmother has refused to speak. It´s an action - it´s longevity, taboo, and sometimes forbidden. Do we fight for what´s wrong, or do we spend our lives searching for what´s right? Last words were never spoken because love doesn´t stop until a heart is no longer beating.

´´An intense, immersive deep dive into a wild, dangerous, and unknown world, written with the pace and appeal of a great thriller. This is nonfiction at its very best.” (Lee Child, New York Times best-selling author of the Jack Reacher novels) The true story of two doomed ships and a daring search-and-rescue operation that shines a light on the elite Coast Guard swimmers trained for the most dangerous ocean missions In late September 2015, Hurricane Joaquin swept past the Bahamas and swallowed a pair of cargo vessels in its destructive path: El Faro, a 790-foot American behemoth with a crew of 33, and the Minouche, a 230-foot freighter with a dozen sailors aboard. From the parallel stories of these ships and their final journeys, Tristram Korten weaves a remarkable tale of two veteran sea captains from very different worlds, the harrowing ordeals of their desperate crews, and the Coast Guard’s extraordinary battle against a storm that defied prediction. When the Coast Guard received word from Captain Renelo Gelera that the Minouche was taking on water on the night of October 1, the servicemen on duty helicoptered through Joaquin to the sinking ship. Rescue swimmer Ben Cournia dropped into the sea - in the middle of a raging tropical cyclone, in the dark - and churned through the monstrous swells, loading survivors into a rescue basket dangling from the helicopter as its pilot struggled against the tempest. With pulsating narrative skill in the tradition of Sebastian Junger and Jon Krakauer, Korten recounts the heroic efforts by Cournia and his fellow guardsmen to haul the Minouche´s crew to safety. Tragically, things would not go as well for Captain Michael Davidson and El Faro. Despite exhaustive searching by her would-be rescuers, the loss of the vessel became the largest US maritime disaster in decades. As Korten narrates the ships’ fates, with insights drawn from insi... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dan Woren. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/rand/006136/bk_rand_006136_sample.mp3.
