Overview

Heroes Proved by Oliver North


A globe-spanning, heart-pounding epic thriller of good vs. evil, political intrigue, and what it means to be a patriot—from New York Times bestselling author Oliver North.

The year is 2032. The NRA has been outlawed; the U.S. military has been gutted; Conservative Christians, dubbed ANARKS, have been labeled a global conspiracy and have been largely driven underground. The Caliphate is now a superpower, residing in Israel. The White House is occupied by a repressive Progressive regime, obsessed with the upcoming presidential election. Then, the kidnapping of an MIT physicist who is privy to sensitive scientific information from a Houston energy conference by Islamic terrorists sets in motion a high-stakes international game of cat and mouse.

Peter Newman, security consultant and former decorated war hero, is determined to rescue the scientist. The president, fearful that her reelection will be endangered by the reemergence of terrorism, will stop at nothing to keep the kidnapping a secret. The White House condemns the kidnapping as the work of ANARKS, and has the authorities label Newman an ANARK. Newman is forced to evade the law while also preparing a daring rescue with the help of his war hero father, a patriotic U.S. senator, and a band of special forces operatives.

Fast-paced, gripping, and filled with authentic detail, North has crafted an edge-of-your-seat tale—and offers an ominous look into what can happen in an election year.

Excellent recap of how we got into this mess and a plausibssrle telling of where it may lead. Very heavy on acronyms, especially in the early chapters, and my bad that I didn't discover the glossary in the back sooner. Look for it before you begin reading. The setting is twenty years in the future. Much of it will probably happen sooner than that and it's tempting and easy to replace some of the characters in the book with contempory figures. That makes it even scarier. I appreciate Col. North's willingness to share his faith in this novel through many of his characters. Thank you sir for your service to God and country.

I really enjoyed this book. I could hardly put it down. It is interesting that many of today's world issues are included and written in a most engaging way.

A friend told me about this book. I'm so glad I read it and recommended it for all who are concerned about the direction our country has taken. Even though it's fiction there are times when I'm watching current news programs that I think, "oh my, that sounds like it's straight from Heroes Proved". Oliver Nortb is a true patriot - too bad he isn't helping lead our country now.

This is singularly the most rivetting story I have read in years. Because of North's backround, the bones of the story are realistic and based on current and near future technology.

Once again Oliver North has done it again. With what is coming to light with regards as to what is going on in America today, this book is very timely. Though it is written in the future, taking place in 2032, this book has a feel of reality. This book should be a must read so the American people can understand what can happen to them when they allow the Government to ignore the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

North takes us in the middle of visibility to government reality in monitoring and controlling citizens. The suspense and intertwining among the stories and characters kept me engaged. He'll make you a believer in the "bad" people and also in what and how to prepare ourselves. Don't be naïve, these things happen every day. Scary!
