The Pro Patria Projectby Nathan S. Mitchell
The Pro Patria Project ("for one's country") is the sequel to the author's The ProCon Conspiracy. It involves a dozen powerful mensix each from the federal and private sectorswho hatch a plot to assassinate a dozen of the nation's most prominent citizens. Believing these men are undermining the country's morals and values, the Committee of Twelve consists of the National Security Advisor, Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman, Secretary of Defense, Directors of the CIA and FBI, and a US Congressman.
Pardoned men from the defunct ProCon Conspiracy are recruited by the Committee to plan and execute the plot. General Henry Mullaire and Colonel Manfred West, co-conspirators during the ProCon debacle, manage an intriguing scheme that uses desperate men to carry out the ruthless murders. No witnesses remain at the end; no stone is left unturned.

The second book in the trilogy (after ¿ProCon Conspiracy¿), the ¿Pro Patria Project¿ is a story that seems too real to be imagined. In a nation that is often faced with duplicitous conduct by its public officials, this book makes the reader wonder where the facts end and fiction begins. Dissatisfied with what they perceive as declining moral and ethical values in the nation, a dozen wealthy and powerful people decide to take drastic action. They hire a team of mercenaries to methodically assassinate twelve of the most liberal, influential people in the country. Managed by General Mullaire, one of the corrupt participants in the ProCon Conspiracy, the Pro Patria (for one¿s country) Project strikes a familiar note. People with money and power can get away with anything. Ably assisted by Colonel West, another survivor of the ProCon Scandal, Mullaire relocates condemned inmates from a federal prison to do his dirty work. After exhaustive training and brain washing, the ex-inmates become trained assassins who carry out their dastardly deeds with blind obedience. Mullaire is double-crossed by his sponsors when the last victim is murdered, introducing yet another interesting twist to a spell-binding tale that Mitchell tells so well. This book is great entertainment that will also make the reader think; perhaps even worry.
In the ¿Pro Patria Project¿, Mitchell molds several plausible scenarios into a thrilling, action-packed drama that keeps the reader turning the pages. A nail-biter in the true sense, ¿Pro Patria¿ (for one¿s country) is about a dozen powerful, conservative people who hire a team of mercenaries to assassinate 12 of the nation¿s leading liberals. The hit list includes everyone from the Director of the Immigration and Naturalization Service to the Executive Director of the National Urban League. By playing God, the infamous Committee of Twelve believes the nation¿s declining moral and ethical values are directly attributable to an unprecedented level of ¿liberal leadership and irreverent decadence.¿ By stilling these influential voices, the Committee believes the country will swing back towards the ¿good old days¿ of yesteryear ¿ back when fewer minds made most of the decisions for everybody. Mitchell does a superb job of reprising some of the villains from the first book in the trilogy, ¿The ProCon Conspiracy.¿ In this second book, they pick up where they left off ¿ engaging in a major conspiracy that is driven by greed, power, prejudice, and empire building. Teaming up to form this egregious committee are the U. S. President¿s National Security Advisor, Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman, Directors of the CIA and FBI, Defense Secretary, and a senior U. S. Congressman. These co-conspirators align themselves with six powerful civilian industrialists who share their conservative views. ¿The Pro Patria Project¿ is an excellent book. Its characters, plot, and clever subplots are so well constructed the reader will have difficulty separating reality from fiction.
