An innocent man collides with a sinister conspiracy, in an explosive race against time.

In a future California, on the brink of political upheaval, a high profile assassination triggers a cascade of violence and sabotage facilitated by the highest levels of power. Nathan Fisher, an unassuming government employee, is drawn into the unraveling conspiracy, after accidentally witnessing a suspiciously timed, clandestine military-style operation.

Hunted by ruthless killers seeking to ensure his silence, suspected by the authorities, and aided only by a loyal Marine officer with a mysterious agenda, Fisher and his family must somehow stay a step ahead of their relentless pursuers, navigating a dangerously changed world, in a desperate search for sanctuary.

With their lives on the line and California on the brink of secession, can they save themselves—and ultimately their country?

The Definitive Prequel to Wayward Pines

“I was over the moon when I heard that Steve was going to dip a toe into Wayward Pines…I never imagined when I opened Wayward Pines to Kindle Worlds that something like Genesis would come along. As the creator of this universe it is such a thrill when a work comes along that not only adds to it, but makes it better. Whether you’re a fan of the Wayward series, or are exploring it for the first time, I can’t recommend Genesis highly enough.” —Blake Crouch, author of the Wayward Pines Trilogy.
