“Burn Down the Sky is an intense, amazing, post-apocalyptic tale of unleashed terror and undying hope. This is gifted writing and a superb, brilliant thriller.”
—New York Times bestselling author Bill Evans,

“Children of Men meets The Handmaid’s Tale—with The Road Warrior to rev up the high octane plot.”
—Mark Feldstein, author of Poisoning the Press

Jim Jaros transports readers to a terrifying, post-apocalyptic near-future world in Burn Down the Sky, a breathtaking thriller unfolding against a landscape of climate collapse and environmental catastrophe. Pseudonymously written by multiple Emmy and EdgarŽ Award-winning investigative journalist and author Mark Nykanen, Burn Down the Sky brilliantly imagines a nightmarish tomorrow where a runaway virus has killed most of the Earth’s population. Jaros electrifies with a fast-paced adventure tale of a desperate mother determined to free her captive child from the clutches of a dark and twisted religious cult. Fans of Stephen King’s The Stand and Justin Cronin’s The Passage will not want to miss this one.

About the author (2011)

James Jaros is the pen name of the widely praised thriller author Mark Nykanen, the four-time Emmy winning investigative reporter whose internationally best-selling books have been praised by critics as "irresistible," "vivid and emotional," "nerve-wracking," and "furiously paced." Europe's largest newspaper hailed him as "The new master of the psycho-sexual thriller" for his dark psychological tales. Now, as James Jaros, he sweeps readers into a post-apocalyptic world as real as it is horrifying.
