9780515125252: State of Emergency

Utah, Colorado, Wyoming, and Arizona are threatening to secede from the Union and want full military control of their borders. If their demands are not met, they will destroy the Glen Canyon Dam in Arizona. With the president and vice president overseas, immediate responsibility falls to Secretary of State Barbara Reynolds. But Reynolds finds herself negotiating within a web of deceit and betrayal where the line between ally and enemy is never clear--and can change in the space of a second.

About the Author:

Most recently, Dr. Pieczenik has been pursuing the world of television films. He was executive producer and creator with Tom Clancy of the highly acclaimed Op Center miniseries based on the best-selling book series, and his and Tom Clancy's miniseries entitled Netforce. The television rights to his current novel State Of Emergency have been sold to ABC Pictures.

From AudioFile:

This rigorously detailed exploration of a hypothetical scenario leading up to a second American civil war sits somewhere between a novel and a think-tank exercise. The sheer volume of exposition, either narrated or in the mouths of two-dimensional characters, makes the story move at a glacial pace with little dramatic tension. The writing is consistently good as exposition, and Adams Morgan makes the best of it. But at the end of the day, this is more essay than novel; as such it gains little by being read aloud. A print reader primarily interested in the movement of the story would probably skip or skim a good deal, which cannot be done with a tape.
