President Woodrow Wilson once wrote, "Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture[ing], are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it."

Wow, This is a difficult book to review as it was one part political thriller to two parts conspiracy theorists diatribe against Globalism.
The foundation of the story is around two "accidents" which destroy two oil fields and countless lives. Enter our intrepid ATF investigator who soon realizes that these accidents were the work of a shadowy cabal. A secret society of billionaires called Caesar who had a cunning plan to rule the world from the shadows and create a new world order. The novel was

Started of as a reasonably promising conspiracy thriller, but then the writer got more involved in expounding the detail of the conspiracy, at the expense of plot, and his attempts to use a wide range of vocabulary, not necessarily accurately, became distracting.

How could you not love a book that includes references from other great works, such as 1984 and Of Mice and Men? I also appreciated that the story did not get muddled up with a romance that most fiction feels the need to put into every chapter.

The writing style is pedantic and stilted. The story might be good but I skipped vast portions of it - especially all of the quoted speeches from presidents' past and even the preamble to the constitution. At 99 cents for kindle it is too much.

Intriguing story concept and some good writing. Not quite a 'page turner', but definitely an enjoyable read! And I must admit that it feels good to read a book in one week after spending so long on Les Mis!!

I think I liked it, but it did get bogged down at times. The beginning caught me, but it got a little long.

I'm the bestselling author of REUNION, Twisted Vengeance, Creepy and The Indie Author's Guide to the Universe.

I live in Central Indiana with my wife, four children and two stray cats. I obsess over details, dream strange dreams and teach a creative writing course for a homeschool co-op. Look for my upcoming paranormal thriller, Act of Vengeance, coming in late 2011.

I grew up in Saginaw Michigan,
