From the cover: “A chilling tale of intrigue and betrayal in the aftermath of an American nuclear war, and one of the most inventive novels of alternative history since Robert Harris’s FATHERLAND. What if the Cuban Missile Crisis had become a full-blown atomic war? So begins RESURRECTION DAY, a fascinating novel of tantalising, speculative history. The place is Boston. The year is 1972. It has been ten years since bombs fell over major cities in the United States and the Soviet Union. Russia is decimated. Omaha and San Diego are virtually destroyed. Washington D.C. lies beneath a giant crater lake. President Kennedy, Vice President Johnson, and their families have disappeared and are believed dead. “The best and brightest” of their administration are disgraced or in hiding. America is a shell of her former glory, a second-rate power dependent upon the kindness of Britain. Martial law rules. Carl Landry, a young reporter with The Boston Globe, arrives at the scene of a murder. A friendless man, a veteran of the ‘62 war, has been shot in his bed, Landry begins to doubt he is the victim of a burglary gone wrong and suspects that the man has taken secrets to his grave. What was this man doing in the War Room of the White House in October 1962? Who pushed the button that started the war? What is the legend and what is the lie? Who was the betrayer and who the betrayed? And could John F. Kennedy, by some miracle, still be alive?”
