After two terms of the most liberal president in decades, America continues its plunge down the slippery slope of socialism by electing yet another politician, hell-bent on destroying all the Founding Fathers held dear.

If anyone was wondering what would happen if the policies of our government get too out of control, this book does not pull any punches. Cameron does a marvelous job at painting a picture of a not-so-distant future where our rights are under attack, not only by shady politicians, but by an apathetic citizenry.
What I really like about this book is the character development. Just when you think the story is going one way, a thoughtful character takes it in another direction. It isn't just a good vs. evil tale. This story unravels the way morality is shifting today and the thoughts that drive it. Is the world getting better under a new socialist regime? Can a few brave men and women rescue what is left of the Constitution?
You don't have to be George Orwell to see what is going on in the world today, and this book is an interesting take on what could, or what is happening today. Gun owners will enjoy Cameron's knowledge of the law, as well as his appreciation of our gun culture. I have to say that I learned a few things by reading this book about guns, history, and the law.
Enemies of the Constitution will probably be gobbling Rolaids halfway through this book. The exposing of their thought process is revealed through good storytelling and researchable truth. If you are ready for a good story, with some intense action, and are willing to think, this is the perfect book for your library.
I do feel I must offer a warning for language and a steamy situation that occurs in the story. I thought these could have been written around or in different ways, but that's just me, speaking as a Christian.
Cameron is a great storyteller with a love for his characters. I hope to see more books in the future!

It is my opinion that this book is a cliche ridden, white supremacist fantasy. I chose the term cliche because it perfectly describes cardboard characters; unimaginative prose; outrageous plot elements; and cheap gimmicks to attempt to create a false sense of suspense.
*SPOILER ALERTS * SPOILER ALERTS * SPOILER ALERTS*
A white supremacist group seeks to split off the northern part of the U.S. state of Michigan (known here as the "Upper Peninsula") from the other states. They are willing to kill; rob; hi-jack nuclear weapons; and detonate bombs and "nukes" to achieve their aims. There are two factions within the "militia" who ultimately fight amongst themselves.
These violent acts, they claim, are justified because their liberties are being infringed by Washington [kind of a supposed re-run of the Revolutionary War--only updated with digital tech and weapons of mass destruction]. I felt the novel was racist and that it attempted to justify murder and genocide by nuclear weapons. Its author, Mr. Reddy, and I have engaged in a lively debate about this at Amazon's US portal. He has his supporters and I have mine. Britons "do not have a dog in this fight", but may cheer plans to nuke parts of America--it doesn't happen. Nevertheless, I cannot support even an "imaginary" use of nuclear weapons against my own countryman.
For a superior read in this genre, I would recommend considering The "Enemies Trilogy" by Matthew Bracken. You can find lyrical prose; multi-dimensional characters; exciting plot lines; and more satisfying experience with other available novels. BN has a world of exciting fiction. Be choosy.
