What if the Cuban Missile Crisis had become a full-blown atomic war?

The place is Boston. The year is 1972. It has been ten years since bombs fell over major cities in the United States and the Soviet Union. Russia is decimated. California is virtually destroyed. Washington D.C. lies beneath a giant crater lake. President Kennedy, Vice President Johnson, and their families have disappeared, believed dead. "The best and brightest" of their administration are disgraced or in hiding. America is a shell of her former glory, a second-rate power dependent upon the kindness of Britain. Martial law rules.

Carl Landry, a young reporter with The Boston Globe, arrives at the scene of a murder. A friendless man, a veteran of the '62 war, had been shot, but Landry begins to doubt he is the victim of the burglary gone wrong and suspects that the man has taken secrets to his grave. What was this man doing in the War Room of the White House in October 1962? Who pushed the button that started the war? What is the legend and what is the lie? Who was the betrayer and who the betrayed? And could John F. Kennedy, by some miracle, still be alive?

The type of "alternative history" book that I like. The USA of a post Cuban Missile Crisis World War was believable, with people just trying to live their lives as well as possible. The main character was interesting and it was good to follow him on his journey across a post-war American landscape. A good example of this genre.
