by D.A. Winstead

Overview
Those with open eyes knew the inevitable would happen one day…that economic implosion would put an end to our small world. But when the United States learned that the Black Crash of 2015 was planned and carried out by Washington insiders, people simply stopped wondering why, rose above the fray, and learned how to move on…with some conditions. What happened in 2015 was not just an attempt to bring on a financial apocalypse; it was an attack on our way of life carried out by progressive ideologues…insiders…and it left a poor and angry nation seeking revenge, and a conservative nation determined never to let it happen again.
Description
OHIO 2029 is a provocative Orwellian thriller set in post economic collapse America. Fourteen years after the 2015 Black Crash destroyed our way of life, a very different United States has taken shape. Led by a coalition of conservative Southern states credited for forging the greatest economic recovery in our nation’s history, the national economy is strong again. New laws have minimalized Washington’s power and placed progressive troublemakers in ghetto-like reform zones. Still, most Americans remain unwilling to forgive and forget. Much of the nation is still suffering and ready to move on. But first, two families must do so. Mary Catherine Marshall is the daughter of a powerful Red State senator living in Atlanta; Maddy Garner is the son of a Blue State refugee hidden away in dangerous and violent Cincinnati, a national reform zone known as Hell Town. With four of the last five reform zones set to be closed, leaving only Cincinnati to remain for the long-term, Mary Catherine goes there to be with Maddy, the only one she’s ever loved. When she goes missing inside the zone her father created, the two families find out quickly that getting over political ugliness isn’t their biggest problem. Deep in the bowels of the nation’s reform zone, where a hateful roamer has taken over, the two families must forget the past to unite and fight an even uglier and more revengeful reality.
