When Alex Walsh began his day,
there was not a single bullet hole in his jacket
The Void belongs to everyone and belongs to no one. Because of the Cultural War Treaty, the federal government or any agent under their control cannot enter the Void. Ruled for nearly sixty years by gangs and drug cartels, the "settlers" of the Void must live by their wits and their skill at arms.
Raised by scientists who had been sequestered in an underground complex in the Texas panhandle, the Walsh family employs their genius to change the quality of life for the citizens of the Void by using technologies far beyond the human imagination.
When government forces enter the Void on a capture-or-kill mission, they run into a family of geniuses and Texas Rangers who dedicate themselves to protect the two extraordinary children. The feds soon realize that they are mice attempting to capture one very mean, intelligent cat.
