Overview


The American Praetorians is the story of a group of American patriots who believe America -- in a variety of ways -- is on course of self-destruction, and who undertake a second American Revolution to correct that course. The revolution takes place in the year 2025, a time when the individual income tax has risen to a backbreaking 70% for the average citizen; a time when numerous Constitutional rights have been eliminated; a time when the entertainment industries are rampant with vulgarity and despair; and it is a time when sinister one-world government proponents, after the defeat of U. S. -backed forces in the Taiwan War with Red China in 2008, are preparing to make their move on an America that is militarily weak and has little national will. The American Praetorians' motto, "A man who saves a nation, commits no crime," underscores the urgent Praetorian approach toward dealing with the problems that threaten American's existence.
Almost from the outset of their revolution, the Praetorians are beset with misfortune and treachery as it becomes obvious they have a traitor in their midst. The reader is kept guessing until literally the last few pages not only as to the shocking identity and sinister motive of the ultimate traitor to the Praetorian cause, but the fate of nearly all the main characters.
The American Praetorians uses a mix of historical fact and speculative fiction to take the reader on a thought-provoking journey into the next American Revolution, a possibility that is all too real in 2025 America. By the time the reader turns the last page, he'll be left asking and answering his own question: "Could this really happen in America? My God, itcould and heaven help us if it does. "

Meet the Author



The father of three, Dennis Purdy lives in Lakewood, Washington, with histwo youngest children. He is the former owner, editor, and publisher of VCBC, a national magazine devoted to vintage baseball collectibles. He sold the magazine after a six-year run in July of 2000 to devote full time to turning his ideas for novels and screenplays he had been collecting for more than 20 years into reality. The American Praetorians is his first novel. His wealth of character and plot ideas comes from a past as varied as some of the characters in his novels. Before devoting his life to writing, Dennis spent time working in a grocery store, slaughterhouse, restaurant, truck stop, factory, and juvenile delinquent institution. He also spent time as a soldier, professional gambler, police officer, bounty hunter, undercover police informant, freelance writer, car salesman, and trade show promoter before starting the magazine in 1994. His one stab at political office was in 1980 when he ran for county sheriff. He is currently working on a screenplay of The American Praetorians as well as simultaneously writing his next two novels, both tentatively scheduled for publication in 2002.
