THE WALK by LEE GOLDBERG
It's one minute after the Big One. Marty Slack, a TV
network executive, crawls out from under his Mercedes,
parked outside what once was a downtown Los Angeles
warehouse, the location for a new TV show. Downtown LA is
in ruins. The sky is thick with black smoke. His cell phone
is dead. The freeways are rubble. The airport is
demolished. Buildings lay across streets like fallen trees.
It will be days before help can arrive.
Marty has been expecting this day all his life. He's
prepared. In his car are a pair of sturdy walking shoes and
a backpack of food, water, and supplies. He knows there is
only one thing he can do ... that he must do: get home to
his wife Beth, go back to their gated community on the far
edge of the San Fernando Valley.
All he has to do is walk. But he will quickly learn that
it's not that easy. His dangerous, unpredictable journey
home will take him through the different worlds of what was
once Los Angeles. Wildfires rage out of control. Flood
waters burst through collapsed dams. Natural gas explosions
consume neighborhoods. Sinkholes swallow entire buildings.
After-shocks rip apart the ground. Looters rampage through
There's no power. No running water. No order.
Marty Slack thinks he's prepared. He's wrong. Nothing can
prepare him for this ordeal, a quest for his family and for
his soul, a journey that will test the limits of his
endurance and his humanity, a trek from the man he was to
the man he can be ... if he can survive The Walk.
