 About the Book 

The story of late 21st century events told here would once have been too weird to follow. Can Chairman Cheka of the Eurasian Republics throw the United States into chaos, frightening the flabby Americans to death by adding terror to other disastersMoreThe story of late 21st century events told here would once have been too weird to follow. Can Chairman Cheka of the Eurasian Republics throw the United States into chaos, frightening the flabby Americans to death by adding terror to other disasters threatening their way of life, and seize their assets without waging war and the risk of destroying them? Favoring Cheka in this action-filled political thriller and satire are characters such as the Secretary of State with her longing for peace at any price- the Chief Justice who writes her opinions before hearing cases to assure logical consistency- and the media baron who doesnt care that his news commentator is inaccurate because, he says, Im just a beer salesman. Chekas principal agent becomes his principal obstacle. Gunplay erupts in inner power sanctums amid assassination attempts. Invasion and secession threats shake the United States. Events range beyond the scope of satire as the story evolves into deeper matters of mans existence on earth. Multiple signals of catastrophe occur. The technology-driven world fades to reveal a prophetic vision of a new order of things - whether through divine or cosmic forces - that may open the way for human beings to continue living on earth.
