Set in Hugh Howey's world of WOOL and written primarily for readers already familiar with the WOOL universe. Part One of the Silo 49 Series.
Silo 49 has never had it easy and things have just gotten a whole lot worse. Graham, the head of IT, has done many unsavory things in his life but everyone has a line they won't cross. He just found his. With only his best friend, Wallis and a dying electrician, Grace, to stand by him, he is left with one clear and final choice. Does he do what is right or what the rules say he should? It is a race against time for the trio against the impersonal might of Silo One. Their only choice? Going Dark.

I’m a career Naval Officer and secret science fiction writer. I live by the sea under the benevolent rule of my canine overlords and a variety of unruly family members.
My first published series, Silo 49, has cemented my desire to keep on writing and I’ve got a whole slew of new books in progress as well as stories in published and slated anthologies.
It's one of the great mysteries those who know about the other silos have to deal with. Why build so many and work so hard to keep the generations trapped inside the silos alive if they are so easily expendable?
The realization that it isn't so much their survival that matters as their unquestioning and rigid adherence to the dictates of Silo One is a hard one for anyone to accept.
Silo 49: Going Dark
What was happening couldn’t be the way things were meant to be. No silo was expendable or why go to all the trouble of building the silos in the first place. Why put people inside them, sheltered deep inside the blasted earth, to save the human race and then let them die? It made no sense. But then again, he had sat in this very spot while Silo 12 was shut down, everyone inside lost forever. If Silo One could do that, then they were capable of anything and any silo could be lost.
