Overview

You've no doubt seen this quote: "We have met the enemy, and he is us." It's true: today, revolving-door courts spit felons back onto streets uncaught, unreformed. Madmen, madchildren, and criminals kill us with terrifying firepower.

Along with the action and tension of a top-flight political thriller, "We the Enemy" challenges traditional thought on the 5th Amendment and provides out-of-the-box thinking on gun control. The story leads readers to experience the impact on ordinary people of evolutionary ways to deal with crime and weaponry. And it leaves you wondering if maybe they just might work in the real world. This is an "issues" novel that works as a story and as a thought-provoker.

In "We the Enemy," the very nature of criminal justice and self defense is changing in the Pacific Northwest—criminals are compelled to tell the truth in court, and citizens are encouraged to carry nonlethal defensive guns.

But there’s fierce opposition, and the president, in danger of losing reelection, aims to win votes by taking down the man behind it all, Noah Stone. His weapon is Jake Black, an ex Secret Service agent.

Now a cold-blooded gun for hire, Jake lives an emotionless existence after the deaths of his wife and little girl. A fog of numbness in his mind smothers the grief he cannot bear--and pretty much everything else. Scoring a million dollars for taking care of what he sees as a con man is no problem.

But the closer he gets to his target, the more he sees Stone as on the right side of issues. Jake faces the question of his life—who is the real enemy, Noah Stone or Jake Black?

    Provocative, raw, and bleak

    It reminds me of film noir.
