Uncharted Territory: A Mad Max Mystery (Paperback)
After the death of her daughter in the first book of the series, Maxine "Mad Max" Davies' new role in life, full-time grandparent raising two grandchildren, takes her into post-Katrina Mississippi, nature's newest wasteland. While she gets used to raising children again, she also learns to live in a region where most of life's conveniences vanished in the storm and tidal surge. She must protect her grandchildren as well as help others in this new environment. Along the way, she encounters racism, murder, modern-day slavery and child abuse.
