Hundreds of thousands of people from all over the world are gathered together for the closing ceremonies of the XXIX Olympics in Beijing. The event is being broadcast all over the world as the proud athletes enter Bird Nest stadium, an architectural creation resembling a birds nest.
Then, in the blink of an eye, the whole world changes, as a nuclear bomb destroys the stadium and everyone in it. Fueled by anger and disgust, the Chinese government vows revenge.
Bird Nest takes place over a four-day period, chronicling the day of the explosion and the resulting days of turmoil, confusion and, eventually, retribution.About the Author
