Their America is gone forever After the United States suffers a major socio-economic meltdown, a power vacuum sweeps the globe. A newly-radicalized Islamic government has risen in Indonesia and--after invading the Philippines, East Timor, and Papua New Guinea--sets its sights on Australia. No longer protected by American military interests, Australia must repel an invasion alone. In the thick of it all, Peter and Rhiannon Jeffords, American Christian missionaries in the Philippines, and Chuck Nolan, a Texan petroleum engineer in Australia, find themselves adrift in a world in flux. Chronicling the Jeffords' and Nolan's fight against Indonesia's merciless advances, Expatriates is a riveting thriller and a powerful depiction of the authentic skills and techniques needed to survive the collapse of modern civilization.

Review quote

Praise for EXPATRIATES "A wonderful work of fiction" - Alphecca ""Expatriates" doesn't disappoint in the technical nor page-turning sense" - Survivor Jane "Rawles' latest novel, set during a future global collapse, features characters in different parts of the world coping with life stripped of modern conveniences and technology... readers [can] jump into the beginning of the end at any point. For dystopia and action fans." --"Booklist" "Meticulously researched with a wealth of local and technical details." -- Formilog "As with all of Rawles' books, you get a lot of knowledge of survival stuff and ["Expatriates"] is no different. He tells you why, how, and what product they used which is very helpful to other survivalists." --Space Coast Preppers ""Expatriates" is a very entertaining read, especially in perilous times like these." --"Western Courier" Praise for James Wesley, Rawles: "Rawles is an amazingly gifted author who has singlehandedly reignited the postapocalyptic thriller. "Survivors" is an instant classic." - Brad Thor, #1 "New York Times" bestselling author "Rawles' "Survivors" is well worth reading. . . well-written and informative, and speaks with an honesty and bluntness often missing from the policy prognotications of the political elite." - "The New American "
