Overview

In the interest of National Security...
Amendment I Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Amendment II A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
Their weapons have been seized, their homes have become their prisons, their telephones and radios are no longer functioning.
Amendment III No Soldier shall, in time of peace, be quartered in any house, without the consent of the Owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law.
Collier, Georgia has been taken, stormed by men in dark armor at a time when the town has just suffered its greatest moment of tragedy. As hundreds lay dying or injured, the citizens of Collier and the hundreds of strangers who were only there for the Independence Day fireworks displays, find themselves unable to escape their town, cut off from every possible source of help. The soldiers have taken over the hotels, the high school, everything.
The only law in Collier is enforced by the weapons of the invading forces.
Amendment IV The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
A small town has become a prison, a place where even the right to live is questioned every hour, every day.
Sooner or later, something has to give...

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The inhabitants of Collier, Ga., are watching a fireworks display when something falls from the sky that changes their lives forever. Cut off from communication with the world and mourning the loss of dozens of people, the townsfolk summon the courage to face top-secret government forces, alien visitors and the constant threat of imprisonment and death in James A. Moore's (Under the Overtree) Fireworks. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Library Journal
On the Fourth of July, the town of Collier, GA, changes forever as an unidentified object from space crashes into a nearby lake. This cataclysmic event, however, only heralds the beginning of bigger disasters, as the town's residents are taken hostage by their own government in the interest of national security. This latest novel by the author of Under the Overtree depicts the eerie aftermath of an alien visitation and government occupation in chillingly graphic detail. Not for the squeamish, this belongs in most horror or sf collections. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

    More aliens please.

    An interesting book. However, I kept expecting some interaction with the aliens. It never came!

    A fun read, A Dreamcatcher Clone

    This book was quite fun to read, but was a rehash of Dreamcatcher and Tommyknockers combined. Just a cheap version. If you want something to read while laying on the beach or by the pool that doesn't take much thought or effort then go ahead and pick this one up. Just don't expect the quality of Stephen King. And try not to let all the typos disctract you. Book suffers from poor editing. But all in all was quick and fun read.

    strong SF thriller

    The residents of Collier, Georgia always enjoy the annual Independence Day celebration especially the fireworks. However, this year the fireworks are different as a huge UFO crashes killing or severely injuring approximately twenty-five per cent of the locals. <P>Top secret elite military cadre ONYX arrives in town to secure the perimeter. No one will enter or leave quarantined Collier. To the surviving townsfolk, the operation looks more like an invasion force, which turns worse as the soldiers obey orders of strict security enforcement. Violence between both sides of Americans break out even while the UFO remains under the waters of the nearby lake. Unless cooler heads prevail, further tragedy seems like the only outcome. <P>FIREWORKS is not an Independence Day or War of the Worlds ET invasion tale though the alien craft crash serves as the catalyst to the theme of how will the Feds react to a UFO and how will locals react to the heavy handed Feds¿ response that ¿incarcerates¿ them? Instead the novel feels more like the Hoffman thriller Outbreak though the impetus varies. Though why the UFO was flying over earth is never revealed (sequel perhaps) the action is loaded, but James A. Moore forces his audience to ponder what seems like believable actions and reactions of real people, soldier and resident alike. <P>Harriet Klausner
