Chapter 1

Something was wrong. It took Perry a minute to realize what it was. Then he saw the dust plume. There was a vehicle on the gravel road that bordered his property, and he watched and waited while the dust got closer. It was rare for there to be traffic on the road as fuel was so expensive and hard to come by. When the vehicle came into sight Perry moved back into the brush and tried to make sure he was out of sight. A black car pulled into the driveway followed by a second one.

Perry took off his pack and dug his binoculars out of the side pouch. They were well worn, heavy for their size, and the battery pack for the night vision added to the weight. His dad had served in the army in his younger days and brought them back home with him. Now that his dad was gone they were his. He focused the binoculars on the cars and counted the men inside. Two per car, four total. The cars stopped and all four got out. Using hand signals the apparent leader sent two of the men around to the back of the house where they paused at the rear corners and drew out their weapons. The leader and the fourth man went to the front door and knocked. Perry could faintly here him call out, “IRS, open the door”. The man waited a three count and then kicked in the door. The men at the rear corners of the house waited a second and then ran to the back door and kicked it in. They entered the rear at the same time the leader entered the front. The fourth man stayed on the front porch and constantly scanned the surrounding area.
