Rick Stevens—a rebellious loner whose NASCAR dreams have fallen short—falls victim to the governor's plans to run for President of the United States. Governor Wellington Royce of Tennessee relies on support from the Fraternal Order of Police to catapult him into The White House. Royce beefs up the police presence on The Great Smoky Mountains' highways, and offers incentives to those generating citations from tourists. Thrown in jail, abused, and setup, Rick Stevens accepts an offer from the governor's political enemies to declare war on the highway patrol. With twenty million dollars, Rick builds the car of his dreams and wreaks havoc in what will become the greatest car chase in history. The car chase becomes a journey of self-discovery and newfound romance as a gauntlet of guns, missiles, and the might of the military wait for him at the finish line. The treachery of politics proves more sinister than even death.

This is definitelly a book that should be made into a movie. As I read the book I could visualize the race one hairpin curve after another. This is a book that should be read in every high school in America. Teachers would not have any trouble getting their student's attention. Rick Steven has the true American spirit of freedom and justice. All of us have felt that the government is corrupt, but Rick takes his views to the limit. Live or die he is determined to prove his point. His solution is unusual to say the least, but America was founded by forward thinking individuals. An excellent read and I highly recommend this book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

“Tale of the Dragon” is a fun ride with a great message! Rich Hoffman is a rare, consistent, true conservative voice!
–Doc Thompson nationally syndicated radio host and regular guest host for the Glenn Beck Program
“With Tale of the Dragon, Rich Hoffman combines NASCAR, Rebel Without a Cause, and Smokey and the Bandit. If you like fast cars, and hate speed traps, this is the book for you. And just every once in a while, any real American wishes he had a Firebird like the one in Tale of the Dragon.”
–Best Selling author Larry Schweikart of ‘7 Events that Made America, America,’ and co-author of #1 Best Seller ‘A Patriot’s History of the United States’
“Rich Hoffman has very skillfully, and with the obvious storyteller’s touch, expressed some of the great challenges that we face as a society today in a way that anyone can understand and enjoy within the context of a great story. ‘Tail of the Dragon’ will enlighten all who read it, young and old, and I highly recommend it.”
–Joshua Charles co-author of the #1 New York Times Best Seller ‘The Original Argument’ with Glenn Beck
“Wow, I just finished reading ‘Tail of The Dragon’ and I physically feel like I just got off a roller coaster without the benefit of a safety harness.
If you believe that progressive policies pushed by collectivist politicians can rob a vibrant free and independent country of its spirit, how excited you will be to see one man, desperate for freedom – powerful enough and devoid of chains, who refuses to capitulate, take on a government without a soul and bring it to its knees!
The spirit of Ayn Rand is still alive and is being lived and written about by Rich Hoffman…Galt/Stephens 2016!
I was impressed how this skillful author can tell this story that involves sleazy politics without using profanity.
Hoffman got it right.”
–George Lang, West Chester Twp. Trustee, (voted in the top 100 places to live in the nation.)
“Just finished the book and am sweating profusely. Wow, what a ride !!! Fasten your seat belts for one of the most thrilling rides ever in print.”
–Ron and Nancy Johnson from Discovery Channel’s Hell Roads episode on Tail of the Dragon
“In a society disconnected and apathetic to the “fundamental transformation” of our country, Rich Hoffman has brilliantly created a novel that can entertain to the masses while still delivering a powerful message that needs to be heard. If you’re looking for a thriller that appeals to your rebellious but still common sense driven self, be sure to fasten your seat belts, pop your clutch, and peel out for Tail of the Dragon.”
–Matt Clark from the Clarkcast Radio Network, WAAM Radio, Ann Arbor
“Rich Hoffman’s book ‘Tail of the Dragon’ takes you on a joy ride through the winding hills of Tennessee and through the exploration of truth. From the book, ‘truth isn’t something you can hide from people.’ Rich Hoffman doesn’t hide the truth about the intrusion of government in all of our lives.”
–Ann Becker–President of the West Chester Tea Party
