Secession is a fast-paced adventure novel set against the current-day backdrop of a politically divided United States.
Zachariah Bass is a young Texas Ranger, struggling to define his role in serving the people of the state's remote western territories.
Working a series of heinous crimes, Zach uncovers a dark, treacherous secret - a conspiracy that could alter America's future and result in the secession of Texas.
Co-authored by P.A. Troit and bestselling writer Joe Nobody, Secession explores a world where a hopelessly gridlocked government fuels an ever-deepening divide between right and left. The public's frustration with the country's direction forces desperate leaders on both sides of the political spectrum to consider splitting the union.
Based on actual historic events, current economic realities, and a growing global trend, Secession immerses the reader in a lifelike scenario that could be America's future.

I appreciated this story from the standpoint of a thought experiment as opposed to a prediction of future events. The story was fairly believable and made sense, with a few instances of hyperbole or over-the-top actions from one of the characters. By and large, a good read.
This novel begins a story of Texas secession that looks to become a series. You don't have to be a secessionist to enjoy the book; you just have to love Texas and freedom, and at least have your eyes open to the missteps of Federal government. That said, the depictions of U.S. statists, agency bureaucrats, and various & sundry "liberal" tax-and-spenders is rather two-dimensional, and a number of events appear scripted to get Texas out of the Union without a major war breaking out ... at least early on. Resemblance of story characters to actual political figures is blatant. However, the story itself is a good read, and fun to consider. What would actually happen if Texas demanded & was given its "fair share" based on its former contributions to the Union, and how many U.S. business owners and citizens might prefer to move to an independent Texas, with more freedoms, lower taxes, but more personal responsibilities? How many current residents of Texas might prefer to live the more regulated life of those in the remaining U.S.? How would the debate unfold, and what events might influence the final vote? How stable would the final result be? This book, despite its weaknesses, presents one scenario leading to an independent Texas. I enjoyed it.
Great story and tale
