Overview

The gods will fall when the people rise.

Com DeGroot is an outsider politician who tells it like it is. But as he makes his way up the power structure of the U.S. Senate, he is forced to choose between his promising career and the promise he made to defend the Constitution. Just as Com is poised to make a name for himself in the cutthroat climate of D.C. party politics, he is presented with an opportunity to save the charter city of Ur, Texas from a suspicious partisan plot aimed at taking over the rare free-market hold-out. The only catch is, in order to save Ur, he has to go up against the most powerful men on Capitol Hill and risk all he has accomplished in his young career.

With the help of astute libertarian and elusive old past Cate Heatherton, Com engages in a dangerous fight to save Ur from what they discover is a shadowy corporate-government conspiracy that will stop at nothing to get its way.

"Gods of Ruin" thrusts the reader into the quick-deal, high-stakes game of national policymaking, and uncovers the secret underbelly of a government where morality and the rule of law are quaint sidelights to all-engrossing corruption and power-broking. Set a decade in the future, this thriller serves as a stark reminder of what can happen when liberty is overlooked in pursuit of security, and offers a glimpse at the potential solution.
