Initially set in 1985 before the Reagan/Gorbachev summit could take place. The final conflict seemed like a far-fetched juxtaposition but its consequences spelt doomsday end game. A nuclear war is ignited by an unforeseen source leading to the superpowers exchanging H bomb punches like drunken boxers. Four free wheelers get caught in the maelstrom but after holocaust night only two survive; soon it's down to one. An avalanche contrast is present throughout the text between the normality of their pre-holocaust lives and the harsh inhuman aftermath. Out of an English population of 38.5 million only 120,000 survive, their numbers dropping daily. In this grave new world, scientist's sperm is used to artificially inseminate surrogates with the aim of sustaining human life. It's a desperate race to induct and educate the new born into taking over before all adult survivors expire on Maggie's Farm. Contemporary fiction, prophetic, intrigue.
