Overview

Ivan Goldman envisions a riotous near future in which the Blue States have seceded and formed their own union following a disastrous US invasion of Denmark, now deemed the central front in the war on terror. It's one of several conflicts being waged by a zealous Red Zone government in Washington that reportedly dispatches press gangs to fill military ranks while its citizens flee to Mexico seeking employment as domestics and busboys. Tossed into this maelstrom is ghost writer Delmore LeCorte, who becomes romantically entangled with both the Red Zone president and her more astute sister. Learning secrets he'd rather not know, LeCorte is pursued by a deranged vice president who reportedly rules his domain from a lair deep beneath the Rockies and a ruthless Blue Zone senator who's the love child of a famously randy Democratic ex-President. It's left to the reader to decide whether Exit Blue is inventive political satire or a prescient look at more divisive times ahead.
