Overview

America's greatest city lies in ruins after a nuclear bomb is detonated in New York Harbor during a Fourth-of-July celebration. Chaos and anarchy reign while the American government is morally adrift. The concept of liberalism has become so perverted that even chimpanzees are granted civil rights! Atheistic humanism has become the de facto religion of the state...A "Race of Devils" is not just a gripping "whodunnit." You won't be able to put it down. It will force you ponder the unthinkable: Can America redeem itself before it's too late?

A penetrating, astute, and even disturbing, page-turner that offers a futuristic scenario in our post-9/11 era. Constantly threatened with imminent, even home-grown, terrorist attack, and concern about a country whose moral compass is spinning wildly, this plot is not only plausible, it is likely. Debuting only months after the publication of editorials in the Wall St. Journal (5/26/10) and the NY Times (5/28/10) regarding the generation of the "first synthetic cell" in a laboratory setting, the book is all too timely. We are no longer in the "if," but rather, the "when" epoch. It previews a world where science triumphs, and man is the universal be-all and end-all. Constitutional and human rights collide. Basic tenents of the foundation of our country and constitution are stretched and twisted as a means for the gratification of its citizens. The moral "line in the sand" is drawn, and crossed. And, God is beyond dead.....He is forgotten history to most. The characters, well-developed and believable, struggling with power, political conflict, and moral boundaries, are emotionally riveting. They use strife as a means to override civil liberty, and civil liberty as a means to gratification. They provide examples of the best and worst of human nature. Unsettling as the story may be, the solution it poses is, actually, quite simple.....returning to the roots that made this country strong and honest, and ordered by a power far greater than the sum of its citizenry or its legislation. For, in the words of our veterans, "Freedom is NOT free....." The background references to history and literature create an intelligent work of fiction that borders on probability. This book demands a second read.....before the movie premiers!!!
