A natural disaster reveals an unnatural conspiracy—“Steele keeps the action moving at a breathless pace right up to the nail-biting climax” (Publishers Weekly).
 It takes only minutes for the earthquake to demolish St. Louis. The city’s oldest structures crumble, its finest bridge collapses into the Mississippi, and the observation deck of the famous arch falls to earth, killing five. Seven months later, all those who can afford to leave have gone, abandoning the poor, sick, and desperate to scrap for survival. Gerry Rosen, a reporter for the Big Muddy Inquirer, isn’t going anywhere. Whether thriving or ruined, this is his town.
After months of reporting on the earthquake’s aftermath, with electricity, security, and food in short supply, Rosen stumbles on something that takes his breath away. Beneath the rubble of old St. Louis lurks a stunning government conspiracy, the details of which are almost too dangerous to print. Rosen goes underground, running from the army in a desperate attempt to save his city—and his life.

"The Rift would be a very good beach book, if you could put it down long enough to get into the water." —— The San Diego Union Tribune

FRACTURE LINES PERMEATE THE CENTRAL UNITED STATES.  Some comprise the New Madrid fault, the most dangerous earthquake zone in the world.  Other fracture lines are social—— economic, religious, racial, and ethnic.  

What happens when they all crack at once?

Caught in the disaster as cities burn and bridges tumble, young Jason Adams finds himself adrift on the Mississippi with African-American engineer Nick Ruford.  A modern-day Huck and Jim, they spin helplessly down the river and into the widening faults in American society, encountering violence and hope, compassion and despair, and the primal wilderness that threatens to engulf not only them, but all they love...

" A breakout book that you'll swear the author lived" —— SF Age

"I don't like disaster novels. I would not have even glanced at The Rift if it weren't backed by Walter Jon Williams' reputation for excellence. And I definitely would not have kept reading if Williams hadn't demonstrated on every page that he deserves his reputation. The result? I was so engrossed in—— and engaged by ——The Rift that I forgot that I don't like disaster novels. This book is an impressive achievement.”
 —— Stephen R. Donaldson, New York Times bestselling author of The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant

"The Rift is bloody wonderful! Williams brings an historic disaster back for an encore and metaphorically flattens it again. This is the stuff for which sleep is lost--and awards are made." —— Dean Ing

"The Rift shakes up the world like it's never been shaken before." —— Fred Saberhagen

"[For fans of the disaster novel] Williams delivers the requisite thrills and setpieces—— but he also, to paraphrase Conrad, offers a bit of that truth for which they forgot to ask." —— Locus

The Internet firearm forums and blogs are passionately discussing the action scenes depicted in the first novel of the series, and are anxiously awaiting this book's release which brings closure to some of the questions left unanswered.

Target shooters, retired military veterans and arm-chair generals all over the world have enjoyed the author's method of blending good 'ole boys vs terrorists, sniper vs counter-sniper and patriotic Americans helping citizens who have become victims because they were not prepared for the hard challenges facing the Nation when its enemies bring the fight to American soil.

The Cataclysm Scroll - Continues the storyline launched in the first book of the New Madrid Trilogy called "A Matter of Timing", but delves into exploring regions traditional science doesn't understand energy cause & effect, the subconscious mind, and dream states as a Sioux Shaman enters to assist one of the heroines in bringing resolution to the chaos and mayhem spawned in the killer earthquake's aftermath.

Can the Shaman quell impending doom in a physical realm by using metaphysical and spiritual techniques? Will an associate professor from the University of Illinois be successful in her attempts to right a wrong in order to save Earth from annihilation? Will assassins hired by America's enemies eliminate our heroes?
