New York Times bestselling author Stephen Coonts delivers another nail-biting thriller starring CIA Director Jake Grafton and his right-hand man, Tommy Carmellini.
The president of the United States stands on an outdoor stage, flanked by powerful members of his administration and party. Television crews are preparing for broadcast. High above the stage, on a nearby rooftop, a decorated sniper adjusts the scope on his rifle.
Afterwards, America will never be the same.
Jake Grafton and Tommy Carmellini suddenly find themselves on the wrong side of the law when a public act of violence throws the country into chaos just before a presidential election. After martial law is declared and rioting begins, Grafton and Carmellini must risk everything to unravel a massive conspiracy and help a new resistance movement rise up against an unimaginable enemy....

Good story, well told, but a heavily right wing US political agenda I think. However this does not detract too much for overseas readers, not sure how it will sit with US Democrats though!
I usually enjoy Coonts's books, but this is an absurd fantasy in which the author lets rip with both barrels against Muslims, Mexicans, liberals, socialists, abortion, taxation, intellectuals, climate change theories, and anything else that doesn't fit with apple pie and mom.
A corrupt (naturally)black president declares martial law and appears to be heading for a dictatorship. As a result, Texas secedes from the union and declares independence.
The book is complete idiocy, but if you like guns, blood and Donald Trump types, you'll love it!
Every American that cares about this country should read this book. It is right out of today's headlines and makes you look at everything our President does through new eyes.
"best in the series."
I could not put this book down. I can see this happening. what a great listen.
A FUNtastic fictional account of a corrupt POTUS and bloated federal government...sadly, it is closer to prophecy than fiction!
"So you think it couldn't happen? A dictatorship in America, just exactly what could cause that to occur right now?"
I had a hard time putting this down. It's so plausible that it is scary. I read this just after reading an older Vince Flynn book called Term Limits. Reading these back to back is jarring!!! Great book!
a fiction book for now, but could easily become a non fiction with Bama dictatorship.
"With just a few changes....."
With just a few changes, the story in this book could be our future with Trump as President. That wacko could be just like the president in this book just change the race from Black to White.
It's scary how closely our future can mirror this book in our very near future.
Time to visit the sporting goods store and stock up on guns and ammo!
"Vest non PC depiction of modern America in fiction form"
Outstanding depiction of our society.
Everything from issues with illegal immigrants, gun control, federal government overstepping, and pointless racist riots and mob rioting. It was amazing!
Everyone should read this, and think about what we are becoming.
"Different perspective for sure"
This book is not PC and will offend many. I am more middle of the road but this does provide a thought process millions of Americans are feeling and what the existing divide between us could lead to for our country. Even if you totally disagree with what is said it is the view of many and shows we had better get our act together and reach a compromise that will hold us together as Americans or risk losing everything and going the way of The Roman Empire and other great civilizations.
"Awesome Book Mind BLOWN"
One awesome and very realistic read, action packed, detailed in every aspect, what'll scare you is this appears to be a glimpse into the very near FUTURE for AMERICA!!!
"A shocking view of America's future!"
I don't usually write a review, but I feel morally obligated as an American to write the praises of this book!!!! The parallels between this work of fiction and The present-day political drama here in the USA are frighteningly real! I strongly urge all lovers of freedom to read and embrace this book. May God bless Stephen Coontz for having the guts to write the superb novel!!!!!
