Coming Soon: My Fourth Political Thriller

BookCoverPreview The BarterForeword by the author

On January 20, 2013 best-seller author and investigative journalist Jerome Corsi published an alarming column at World Net Daily.  The title of the essay was “China Poised To Play Debt Card – For U.S. Land”.  Unfortunately, the piece received little attention, as so many truly valuable pieces of reporting do. 

 The numbers of invented and proliferated tabloid-style stories, relentlessly published by an increasingly government-friendly collectivized American Press and Broadcast Media Corps, serve to divert the attention of America’s population toward sensational pop culture and hip-hop trivia.  Beyond and worse than that, braying, fact-devoid, emotional appeals to extreme political leftist social justice causes continue to divide an ever-dumber, less-educated populace along socio-economic and racial lines.

 Karl Marx is alive and well. 

 In reality these diversionary smokescreens provide cover and concealment for several very real threats to the survival of our liberties and culture. 

 The existential, lethal threat posed by the infiltration of Islam into our culture and institutions became the foundation for my third novel, A Summons To Perdition – and again for my novella The Canal.  In A Well-Regulated Vengeance I presented a future disarming of America by Congress legislating the 2nd Amendment into oblivion.  While imminently threatening to America’s freedom, neither issue is of much import to the despicable pool of corporate stenographers for Islam and the political left – which now masquerades as a press corps.

 Another best-seller author and syndicated columnist, Diana West, spotted Jerome Corsi’s column, to which I alluded above, and immediately recognized the sinister possibilities that his factual revelations contained.  She sent me a link to the publication and included a suggestion that the information put forth in the report should be the subject of my next book.

 And so it has happened. 

 Let’s take a look at the not-too-distant future from a different angle, wherein the very sovereignty of a socially chaotic, financially collapsed United States is on the trading block – and who’s doing the bartering….

About John L. Work

John Lloyd Work has taken the detective thriller genre and woven an occasional political thread throughout his books, morphing what was once considered an arena reserved for pure fiction into believable, terrifying, futuristic, true-to-life “faction”. He traveled the uniformed patrolman’s path, answering brutal domestic violence calls, high speed chases, homicides, suicides, armed robberies, breaking up bar fights, and the accompanying sporadic unpredictable moments of terror - which eventually come to all police officers, sometimes when least expected. He gradually absorbed the hard fact that the greatest danger a cop faces comes in the form of day-to-day encounters with emotionally disturbed, highly intoxicated people. Those experiences can wear a cop down, grinding on his own emotions and psyche. Prolonged exposure to the worst of people and people at their worst can soon make him believe that the world is a sewer. That police officer’s reality is a common thread throughout Work’s crime fiction books. Following his graduation from high school, Work studied music and became a professional performer, conductor and teacher. Life made a sudden, unexpected turn when, one afternoon in 1976, his cousin, who eventually became the Chief of the Ontario, California, Police Department, talked him into riding along during a patrol shift. The musician was hooked into becoming a police officer. After working for two years as a reserve officer in Southern California and in Boulder, Colorado, he joined the Longmont, Colorado Police Department. Work served there for seven years, investigating crimes as a patrolman, detective and patrol sergeant. In 1989 he joined the Adams County, Colorado Sheriff’s Office, where he soon learned that locking a criminal up inside a jail or prison does not put him out of business. As a sheriff’s detective he investigated hundreds of crimes, including eleven contract murder conspiracies which originated “inside the walls”. While serving on the Adams County North Metro Gang Task Force and as a member of the Colorado Security Threat Intelligence Network Group (STING), Work designed a seminar on how a criminal’s mind formulates his victim selection strategy. Over a period of six years he taught that class in sheriff’s academies and colleges throughout Colorado. He saw the world of crime both inside the walls and out on the streets. His final experiences in the criminal law field were with the Colorado State Public Defender’s Office, where for nearly two years he investigated felonies from the defense side of the Courtroom. Twenty-two years of observing human nature at its worst, combined with watching some profound changes in America’s culture and political institutions, provided plenty of material for his first three books. A self-published author, he just finished writing his tenth thriller.

    The plot of this book is not just possible…it it, indeed, PROBABLE! The sheeple of this country must arise from their sleeping in the grass, open their eyes, and see what is actually going on in this country.
