Overview

A few years in our future, Ken Murphy is a National Guard Colonel and senior manager at a factory in tranquil Highview, West Virginia. When the local economy is thrown into a tailspin by a plant shutdown, Murphy is thrown out of work, with no way to pay for medical care for his son.

In an attempt to prove they can operate on their own, the workers move in and occupy the factory. The government intervenes, escalating the labor dispute into a deadly confrontation.

As the conflict intensifies, politicians on both sides refuse to back down or compromise, tipping the nation into a bloody civil war.

Ordinarily I do not like novels set in the future because they're so fanciful. We have world peace and flying cars. Republic breaks that mold. Terrorism, civil liberties, outsourcing, and economic hardship all collide in the next decade and Sheehan-Miles plots out of a very scary roadmap of America's future. The story is scary only because it's so plausible. The author was definitely paying attention during his time spent in the US military. He gets it right from the descriptions of combat down to the sections of the US Military Code of Justice. This only adds to the realism of the story. It doesn't matter if you're a Republican or a Democrat. We could all be headed for the same fate. I urge anyone planning on voting in this year's election to pick up a copy of Republic and consider your options carefully.
