Product description


''The Sopranos meets Mad Max ... In a fresh take on the apocalypse, Nicholas Sansbury Smith's Sons of War presents the end of America as a time of horror, transformation, and, for one enterprising crime family, opportunity. Smith's smooth prose and tough cast of characters keep the pages turning at a thriller pace. Never has the end of the world as we know it been so fun to read.'' --Craig DiLouie, author of Our War

''A deftly crafted dystopian action/adventure novel that is made all the more plausible by the anticipated coming of a second Covid 19-generated Great Depression...A simply riveting read from cover to cover...Impressively original.'' --Midwest Book Review

''A Mafia family, a team of Marines, and the army of a rogue president fighting it out on the streets of Los Angeles during an apocalypse? That's a hell of a cocktail!'' --David Pedreira, author of Gunpowder Moon

''Jam-packed with compelling characters thrown into a chaotic world of kill or be killed, Sons of War seizes the genre in a death grip!'' --D. J. Molles, New York Times bestselling author

''Much like Mario Puzo's classic, The Godfather, Nicholas Sansbury Smith has created an elaborate and timely lens for us to examine family bonds. Sons of War brings us into an entirely plausible near-future dystopia to shine a light on sons thrust into circumstances of their fathers' making.'' --Thrillerfix

''Nicholas Sansbury Smith is the undisputed master of fresh, page-turning postapocalyptic thrillers. Smith reboots the genre with Sons of War, a cleverly designed, tirelessly engaging story of societal collapse -- told from an unexpected and ground-breaking point of view. Sons of War grabs you from the first pages and doesn't let go.'' --Steve Konkoly, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, and USA Today bestselling author of the Ryan Decker series

''Smith delivers a great story that hooks you from the first sentence and is impossible to put down. There is plenty of action, and the characters are dynamic and multidimensional. The author who works in emergency management delivers an authentic plot with no BS. Post-apocalyptic books are somewhat of an irony these days given the fact that we are in the middle of the worst pandemic since the Spanish flu. Nevertheless, Sons of War is a great pulse-pounding read that will leave you breathless until the very last page.'' --Portland Book Review (5 stars)

''Nicholas Sansbury Smith's captivating new postapocalyptic mobster series starts with a daringly original, high-octane bang. An engaging cast of characters you will root for -- even when you shouldn't.'' --Don Winslow

He is an Ironman triathlete and lives in Iowa with his wife, their dogs, and a house full of books.
