American War

Omar El Akkad

It's 2074 and America is in it's second civil war. Global warming is wreaking havoc causing severe storms, prolonged drought, and sea levels so high that people, known as coastal refugees, are pouring into the Midwest. Columbus, Ohio is the new Washington D.C. The Sustainable Future Act has banned fossil fuels, and Southern states who profit from them are not complying and are trying to secede. This cautionary tale looks at what could happen if America turned its most devastating policies and weapons upon itself. It is told from multiple perspective and shares the stories of families being torn and tested in a world full of power struggles, terrorism, and ignorance.

Dead Man Switch

Matthew Quirk

This techno-thriller is the second in the John Hayes series, following Cold Barrel Zero. Hayes is retired from an elite Special Ops team, but is pulled back in when it becomes clear members of his former squad are being systematically killed. The murders are being disguised as accidents and the prime suspects include Claire Rhodes, who is an old assassin protege of Hayes, and Pakistani terrorist Niko Hynd. If the riveting non-stop action isn't enough to entertain, the fascinating investigative and criminal methods contained within will.
