Survivalist

Final Rain

Written By:Jerry Ahern - 1989

  • Final Rain - Jerry Ahern cover

Synopsis

If civilization were destroyed today—would John Thomas Rourke be able to survive...?

John Thomas Rourke's remarkable survival skills enabled him to emerage unscathed from the nuclear devastation of W.W. III. But terrifying new storm clouds loom over the eastern horizon—as the ex-CIA Covert Operations Officer and weapons expert takes command of his battered nation's broadening air and land war against the brutal Soviet foe.

Russian troops, utilizing a blood-curdling new Particle Beam technology, have launched a furious assault on the Eden Project. Joining forces with his international allies—including the army of the underwater citadel Mid-Wake—Rourke races to the defense of the beleaguered settlement. The entire world is dividing to do battle a fourth time. But this time the Earth's atmospheric envelope is so fragile that a single nuclear bomb blast will assure the total annihilation of mankind. And unless John Thomas Rourke can stem the raging Communist death-tide before the ultimate button is pushed, no power on the planet will be able to forestall humanity's extinction—not even... THE SURVIVALIST

Excerpt

John Rourke Uncovered the Action of the M-16

It would be exposed to the icy rain, but only for a few seconds. He clicked the safety tumbler to full auto. With the howling wind and the crunch of ice under the boots of the eight Soviet Marine Spetsnaz approaching the gap in the rocks, total silence was unnecessary.

Rourke contemplated what made these men his enemies. The simplistic answer was that they wore the uniform of his enemies. And the Marine Spetsnaz, like the KGB Elite Corps that Rourke had fought for five centuries, were committed to an ideology he felt was morally wrong.

But Rourke knew he was not planning to kill them for an ideology he considered reprehensible.

He intended to kill them for the most basic reason of all.

If he didn't, they would kill him!
