Summary

For years, like millions of other Americans, John Thomas Rourke had planned for what seemed inevitable — the destruction of civilization. There were various possible causes: global economic collapse, some uncontrollable pestilence, a world famine — or nuclear war.    

And the rumbling signaling the coming of Total War was becoming increasingly strong as Rourke, ex-CIA Covert Operations Officer, weapons expert, and survival authority, made his last desperate gambit to save his estranged wife and two children before the button was pressed, the missile launched, the multi-megaton bombs loosed.    

Here then is the story of the ultimate war, the final nuclear holocaust and the unrelenting quest of John Thomas Rourke as he begins his search across war-ravaged America, following every haunting clue, however fragmentary, to locate his missing family. There are Soviet occupation troops, lawless murderous brigands, and vast uncharted nuclear deserts to block his way. John Thomas Rourke has no option but to go on — he is The Survivalist.

Narrated by Cate Torre, Christopher Graybill, Colleen Delany, David Coyne, Dylan Lynch, James Konicek, James Lewis, Johan Dettweiler, Karen Carbone, Ken Jackson, Michael Replogle, Mort Shelby, Nanette Savard, richard Rohan, Ted Stoddard, Terence Aselford, Thomas Penny, Tim Carlin, MB Van Dom

An 80s action move an audible

It’s a fun listen, like listening to a 1980s action movie. The story is a bit dated. Not a complaint. Anyone that Remembers this series should consider this. I got the bundle so feel good about the length of the book.the individual stories are short so continuing the series is questionable for me, but I try for long run times for my credits
