August 2005. The greatest natural disaster in American history is fast approaching New Orleans. The lives of Elizabeth and William, Marianne and Chris, and Emma and George are turned upside down. Friend, family, stranger, and foe alike will meet their fates as a killer named Katrina tries to drown the Gulf Coast.
From a storm ravaged Gulfport to the miserable Superdome and a desperate Tulane Medical Center, the reader is shown a fuller picture of a story they thought they knew. While First Responders work against time to save the trapped, NOPD captain Richard Fitzwilliam’s quest to apprehend drug-dealer Greg “G-Daddy” Wickham comes to a shocking end.
The survivors must pick up the pieces of their shattered lives. Will bureaucratic bumbling by government officials prove too much for the kindness of strangers to overcome? Will those left in the Crescent City ever find normalcy again?
