The end has come, and everything will change. But the moment has been prepared for.When Director Jonathan Miles seals the compound containing the first Federal University and Research Complex to keep the facilities out of the hands of a secessionist governor, he upends the lives of everyone in the community—and sets off a chain of events hastening the collapse of an already crumbling civilization…
    
The first 3 novels plus the prequel short story in 1 huge volume!

(Contains the complete text of Book 1: Critical Contingencies, Book 2: Threat Multiplication, Book 3: Compromised Inside, and the prequel short story Durable Impressions.)

Critical Contingencies

Katherine Miles and David Belue, students at the first Federal University, part of the FURC in central Florida, face a new and dangerous reality when their community is suddenly cut off from the world outside for its own safety. Each will try in their own way to protect the community from threats without and within. That could cost them their lives…

Threat Multiplication

Mysterious power outages, disrupted communications, and a rash of illness among the guards are only the beginning. Soon FURC Security Chief Anthony Nelson and his small, mostly inexperienced staff are overwhelmed by the hacking of the local network, the contamination of the food supply, and a seemingly impossible murder. And Lt. Katherine Miles can’t help. She’s far from the FURC on a secret mission and unable to warn them—if she can make it back at all, she’ll be bringing even more trouble with her…
    
Compromised Inside

Sealed off from the crumbling civilization outside, the residents of the FURC may be safe from external threats, but their isolation only speeds the spread of a dangerous new infection, even as an upcoming election exposes divisions among them. And the fourteen square mile compound may not be big enough to prevent the pressure from building into violent upheaval…

Durable Impressions

As civilization has slowly crumbled, Katherine Miles has led a life of privilege—but also one of preparation. Now, under the ominous shadow of a society coming apart at the seams, her mettle will be tested for the first time. (This prequel short story is a triptych portraying Kat’s first few steps on the path to awesome.)
    
And the series continues with Book 4: Peripheral Encounters and Book 5: Political Homicide.

About the author

James Litherland is a graduate of the University of South Florida who currently resides as a Virtual Hermit in the wilds of West Tennessee. He’s lived various places and done a number of jobs – he’s been an office worker and done hard manual labor, worked (briefly) in the retail and service sectors, and he’s been an instructor. But through all that, he’s always been a writer. And after over thirty years of studying and practicing his craft, he took the plunge and published independently. He is a Christian who tries to walk the walk (and not talk much.)
