When two drug cartel intruders murder McNamara's wife, sue him and win millions, the Home, Texas citizens take the law into their own hands to get justice for one of their own. In this backward justice novel, the left-leaning President has plans to use Home as a test to take down the Second Amendment and more. If the President says it's legal, it's legal. His plans for the country seem impossible, but step by step Homeland Security runs over the rights of the American citizens, accounting to no ...more

If you like right wing paranoia propaganda, this is the book for you. It would have been a lot better without all the liberal bashing and more thought for the story.

Wow! I liked this book a lot! I like how the characters are written, the plot, the pull of the story, the story, the writing, the plot twists, the ending, etc. I short the book a star due to a few items that bother me.

The book is about a small city in Texas taken over by a very large entity and more that will have to be discovered while reading. The great thing is that none of the takeover takes place right away. The story has number of threads and it takes a bit to tie it together. The reader k

Two or three stars? Why is life so complicated? Ok two stars if I really have to think hard about it. Some good bits, some parts wildly out there and not really believable. The political views were hard to dismiss. The making hero's out of the average town folk got a little too much. It wasn't a terrible read, just not really believable

Now and then we read about a home invasion — and I'm talking about the seemingly random ones, the ones based on opportunities seized by drug-addled bad guys. Well, Johnstone's book is also about a home invasion based on opportunity, but it's not the kind of opportunity you'd ordinarily associate with this sort of break-in. It's all about a lottery ticket, the bad guys scoring good publicity through some corrupt political maneuvers, and the actual relationships the bad guys do — and don't — forge ...more

This book is about the invsion of Home, Texas by the U.S. Government and also by the Mexican Drug Cartel. The U.S. Government disarms the citizens of Home so it can then "test" a nerve gas on them before the sitting President decides it's usable on his "enemies". The Mexican Drug Cartel, however, has different ideas for the nerve gas and invades Home, Texas on the day the nerve gas is being transported into Home. It was an engrossing read. I found it scary to think this book of "fiction" could - ...more

I didn't think id like it but a couple chapters in and I was hooked to think that it is not so far fetched that our government could really do this and how would we really be able to stop them?

This book caught my attention with the first chapter, and the pace of the plot kept me reading to the end. The pacing and the plot adds another half-star to the rating.
The characters are defined by their roles in the plot, and this is a weakness in the novel for me.
This is not a book I would recommend to my liberal friends because, in their arrogance and political correctness, they would dismiss the plot as unbelievable. Some of the concluding plot points are a bit too much for me.
I recommend

Somewhat disappointed in this one. While reading it, I was trying to decide if the author was serious in his portrayal of the people involved or was exaggerating for effect. Every person of liberal persuasion was painted as smarmy, believing regular folks to be stupid rednecks and need to be guided for their own good. All conservatives were good and kind, loving Americans. I know a lot of folks like thoseon both sides, but not everyone, on either side of political persuasion are completely one w ...more
