Overview

Abuse of Power: A Thriller by Michael Savage

From New York Times bestselling author and nationally syndicated radio talk-show host Michael Savage comes a high-intensity debut thriller, the story of a smeared network journalist who uncovers a chilling terrorist plot.

Jack Hatfield is a hardened former war correspondent who rose to national prominence for his insightful, provocative commentary. But after being smeared as a bigot and extremist by a radical leftist media-watchdog group, he ultimately loses his job and finds himself working in obscurity as a freelance news producer in San Francisco.

One afternoon Hatfield is on a ride-along with the SFPD bomb squad when a seemingly routine carjacking turns deadly, after police find several pounds of military-grade explosives in the jacked car. And when the FBI urges Hatfield to stay out of it, he knows he's onto something big.

This event will open up a shadowy trail that leads Hatfield from San Francisco to Tel Aviv, London, Paris, and back again, as he works with a stunning Yemeni intelligence agent and a veteran Green Beret to expose a terrorist group known as the Hand of Allah—and a plot within the highest corridors of power that will dwarf September 11th.

Abuse of Power is a lightning-paced thriller, spanning the globe from Europe and Israel to the back alleys of San Francisco's Chinatown. Jack Hatfield must make the choice between protecting his own life and investigating a terrorist cell whose goal is nothing less than total political control—no matter what the cost.

Since the book isn't out yet one can only read an excerpt from it. The cry baby who said he listened to Michael Savage's show is, as Dr. Savage would say, a Red Diaper, Doper Baby. Love him or hate him, Dr. Savage is a great story teller and he delivers a grand performance here! This will be number one soon! Although the Old York Times will probably disavow it!!

...but the only problem is, this is Current Events. Regarding "Anonymous'" review, it's too bad this person cannot even spell correctly. Re: ABUSE OF POWER - This book is the 21st century ATLAS SHRUGGED, but more relevant. The reader must bear in mind that Nazi is derived from "National Socialism", ie., left wing (not centrist nor right wing). The middle-class U.S. citizen has seen a major erosion of individual liberties, which mirrors the history of Germany, prior to WWII. This book will remind Americans that we cannot fall into the trap of repeating the horrific history of pre-WWII Germany. Thank you, Michael Savage. In case it matters - I'm a 60-year-old Army Brat, Protestant, who visited Bergen Belsen as a young child.

I love listening to Michael Savage,but I wasn't sure what to expect in a novel, a thriller, from him. I was pleasantly surprised to find this to be a great book! It's got lot's of great action, a great plot, and it's one of those books that you can picture being a movie some day. It's a great read, and I hope he puts out more books like this one!! Thanks Dr. Savage!

Whatever you think of the man and his politics, please reserve that for another venue. Please write your review based on the literary effort of Mr. Savage in this book only. Let's keep the reviews clean and review the book, not the person or your personal agreement or disagreement with his politics. Don't give a 5 star or 1 star rating because you don't like the man. Let's rise above it people and promote good books and reading:-) Let this book fail or succeed based on its own merits!

Dr Savage writes as he talks - that is clear, articulate and entertaining! He shows his love of San Francisco, and adds tidbits of interest obviously drawn from his own background. The story may start in San Francisco, but as we know, terrorism spans the globe and appears in some unusual places! Without giving up any of the story, the protagonist, modeled after the Doctor himself, fights against Muslim terrorists, traitors within several intelligence services and a cabal of very interest high rollers, some of whom are "lightly" disguised. A great read that will keep you up reading it, and then thinking about it.

Amazing how the author is able to take present day events, and weave them into a good to the finish mystery novel

I much liked this book and and can't wait for Michael Savage's next fiction. It was a pleasant surprise that Mr. Savage decided to write a fiction novel and hope he continues, he is a natural. Continue your good work Michael.

First time reading a Dr Savage story, good story and the ability to relate American patriotic values was excellent! Glad I read this book.

Sadly, Abuse of Power was not the page-turner I would have expected especially after hearing Michael brag about how good a writer he is. I would say he is just a tad above average judging by this "sleeper" which just may be a great cure for insomnia!

I really liked the book in all. It flowed very good and the timeframe fits together nicely. If your a regular listener to his show then it might be hard at times to not hear his voice telling the story.

Could not put it down. Is one of my top ten reads

Michael Savage Talk Radio Host and author of many Non-fiction books, takes the leap into the fiction world with Abuse of Power. Savage introduces the reader to Jack Hatfield, a lonely guy that lives on his boat with his dog Eddy. Jack Hatfield is much like Michael himself, misunderstood, banned in Britan and a thinker. Jack Hatfield and Michael Savage both know that there are no coinsidances every clue, even the small ones matter. Michael also shows us in Abuse of Power his softer side with providing the reader with a Muslim woman Sara as a hero. From front to back, this book captured my attention and would not let go. Truly thrilling

I imagine that liberals feel about this book the same way that conservatives feel about the novels that slant things toward the left. Sometimes it is hard for people to read something with an open mind, even fiction, when it goes against their political beliefs But I also wonder how many of the people who are slamming Savage would have reacted differently to the book if he had written it under another name. And I find that the assertion that the book is "awful, terrible, or horrible" to be just childish ranting with no basis. The book is very well written. It is thoughtful and for once a fiction book that does not pander to the liberal viewpoint of everything.

All that, a bag of chips and twelve Snapples to go! It's a "cannot put down read"! It has action, romance and terrorists. Who could ask for anything more?
