From an author described as "one of America's criminally neglected authors," Republic is a surprise hit described by readers as "breath-taking," "riveting," and "haunting."
Ken Murphy is a 45 year-old widower and senior manager at a computer chip manufacturer in quiet Highview, West Virginia. The local economy is thrown into a tailspin when the plant is suddenly shut down.
Murphy must fight for healthcare for his terminally ill son. As he tries to save his son's life, he is dragged into a deeper conflict between the forces that are ripping our nation apart.
In the midst of massive unemployment, an aggressive tone deaf government, terrorism and war, Ken Murphy will sacrifice everything for his family, but will that be enough?

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.
