A deadly storm of violence sweeps across the United States in the thrilling third installment of the best-selling Trackers saga.
One month after the North Korean attack, the United States continues to fall into anarchy. In Estes Park, Colorado, Police Chief Marcus Colton and tracker Sam "Raven" Spears work tirelessly to defend their hometown. But after a brutal coordinated attack, they realize it will take much more than roadblocks and a volunteer militia to protect their borders and keep their families safe.
Defense Secretary Charlize Montgomery has been reunited with her son, but his homecoming is short-lived due to the state of the FEMA survival centers around the country. She heads to the one in Charlotte, North Carolina, with her loyal bodyguard, Albert Randall. Outside the camp's walls, the city has descended into chaos, and desperate civilians will do anything to get inside. When Albert stays behind to rescue his sister, he is caught in the middle of a turf war between rival gangs.
In this lawless new world where the most ruthless thrive while innocents suffer, Colton, Raven, and Charlize are faced with their toughest challenges yet. One thing is certain - they won't be able to save everyone. Not with their humanity still intact.

There is nothing more frightening than reality. Nicholas Sansbury Smith knows this and uses it mercilessly. In Trackers, Smith has created a series that could mimic our future if North Korea acts as threatened. There are no monsters and no evil greater than ourselves; Smith weaves a story that demonstrates too close to the reality of what would happen!
Trackers 3 is the next installment of Senator Charlize, Albert, Colton, Raven and the town of Estes Park. Each character is faced with a new issue; a new danger or a new mission or a betrayal of epic proportions. Decisions come fast and hard; some make it, some don’t. Smith shows us how gang mentality plays out – whether it is Latin Kings or Nazi-Racist survivalist the end is always the same – death, destruction and the summation of all things wrong with humankind. While I could give you a taste of the storyline, I fear I would not do it justice and I might reveal too much. Suffice it to say, this book takes you places where fear is too real and not where you expect to go.
Smith is relentless in his creativity and packs each line with action, fear or some other emotion that leaves one bug-eyed in anticipation of what’s to come next. I have listened to Smith’s books beginning with the Extinction Series moving on to Hell Divers and now Trackers. Smith, in his writing, is not only entertaining and terrifying; he is detailed in every aspect capturing our fear and twisting it more and more until we are breathless.
Bronson Pinchot, the narrator, is magnificent! Pinchot becomes completely engrossed in the tale capturing Smiths vision and gives us a stunning performance. Pinchot is smooth transitioning effortlessly to the next intense action. Together, Pinchot and Smith are formidable!
NOTE: Have you ever wondered where people get their ideas? It should be known that Smith used to work for the Iowa Homeland Security and Emergency Management … maybe he knows something we don’t …
