Imagine if you will, a president with integrity and enough loyalty to the constitution to make the bold moves described in this political novel. The end of politicians accepting foreign political bribes and setting term limits to stop the corruption in the American political system. The thought of going to war with China is a nightmare to most Americans. The author’s powerful use of description makes this terrifying scenario come to life on the page.
If this were happening in real life then this president would be facing the danger of being assassinated. Especially if he were going to add term limits, the ultimate fear of corrupt lifelong politicians like the ones that hold office today.
In many ways, this novel reminds me of The Parallax View and The Sum of All Fears. I don’t think the Omicron Group exists in real life but I’m sure something like it actually does.
Could America actually become a republic again? Term limits to keep politicians honest? A president standing up to foreign dictators?
This book is available on Amazon.
