“The government is an imaginary power. It only has authority because people have chosen to give it authority… when you make the government your proxy, you try to become what you are not. And you are living a lie.”
Fired from his U.S. government contractor job, then framed and wanted for the kidnapping of a Supreme Court Justice and the shooting of a local sheriff, Nick James watches hopelessly as his life spirals quickly out of control. Vowing to seek justice and clear his name, he puts his skills as a terrorism analyst to work, tracking the true perpetrators while living on the lam with no one to trust. Taking a chance on an ex-girlfriend who happens to be from the District Attorney’s office and a member of task force assembled to find and apprehend him, James finds an ally and a way to use his knowledge and history to both set the record straight and save innocent lives caught in the cross hairs of a home grown militant group with plans to usher in their own redemption day and government overthrow.
This tantalizing novel is a definite page turner combining decades of news headlines with conspiracy theories and age old government corruption. It explores what’s wrong in Washington D.C., through the eyes of those who have been disparaged economically since childhood. The men, who spent time serving and learning the ways of war from their own government, vow to use that very training to take back the sovereign rights they believe were taken from them with repeated misinterpretation of the Constitution. Illustrating that terrorism is perhaps even more easily launched in our backyards than in the deserts of the Middle East; the author takes readers through a thought provoking journey of blind, unbridled revenge.
