A science fiction-horror novel

In the tradition of George Orwell’s 1984 and Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World comes a deep warning that if current behaviors continue, democracy in the United States could fall in an eerily similar fashion as the Roman Republic did over 2,000 years earlier. Collective narcissism by competing ideologies leads to fighting in Congress, assassinations and mob violence until the escalation reaches its natural conclusion, civil war or even a coup. The effect of which lands squarely on normal, law-abiding citizens and families who become displaced, are forced to choose a side and overwhelmingly suffer the consequences of living under the authoritarianism of an empire that grows out of the ashes of democracy.

Haisley & De’ontay are starting a new family in Ellington, a small American town

Captain Dick is the Chief of Police there, and his wife Emily is the mayor

Abra is the five year-old daughter of a rich, politically-partisan donor in town

Zeke is a revenge-driven townie whose business was cancelled by Abra’s father

They are all swept up in the tumult at 4pm on Friday the 13th of July, 2040 when Alexander Schenk, a five star general, uses a breakthrough software technology for neural chips called Rhetoric for his own benefit. With Rhetoric, General Schenk plans and executes a military coup that will change the face of America forever.

But it’s not too late. Well before the coup takes place, Haisley Jones had been chosen by Rhetoric’s creator to offset General Schenk. Now she must learn to harness its power in order to save democracy.

The countdown begins.
