9780985902025: Essential Liberty

They thought it would never happen here... Seemingly ripped from today's headlines, Essential Liberty is an action-filled, thought-provoking work of fiction about governmental overreach and the abuse of power. Through believable characters and words that could have come from our current political debate, Essential Liberty asks, "What if?"...and then provides the answer. The United States government has banned and begun confiscating firearms from its citizens. Insurance executive Don Williams has never owned a gun and is part of the majority of Americans who initially favored "Collection" (the official term for confiscation), yet he's shocked to see his fellow countrymen being rounded up on the evening news. Don's good friend, former Marine Mike Niculescu, owns many firearms and has refused to surrender them. The son of immigrants from Communist Romania reveres them as symbols of liberty. Bill Payne, of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, commands an ATF Hazardous Operations Team. These elite new teams are reserved for Collection operations with a high level of risk. Payne wants his unit to be the first to make headlines. As the story unfolds, Don is forced to make a choice: Will he turn a blind eye to the abuse of power, or will he choose-for the first time in his life-to make a stand on principle that will put everything he cares about at risk?

About the Author:

Rob Olive enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps fresh out of high school and served four years. He holds a bachelors degree in history from Oregon State University and has operated an insurance agency for over two decades. He lives in Oregon with his wife and three sons. Essential Liberty is Rob’s first novel. The concept grew out of his fascination with the one characteristic that differentiates the United States of America from any other country in history—the importance its Founders placed on individual liberty.

Review:

"I rarely do book reviews, and I sometimes struggle with myself on books I end up choosing to promote. I did just that with "Essential Liberty," and this surprised me because it's a well-written, movie-paced page-turner. My problem was being able to relate some of the characters to plausible individuals relatable to my own experiences, until I realized that I was being guilty of shallow, knee-jerk reactions. And that's where I found real strength in what I first perceived as potential disqualifiers."--David Codrea, National Gun Rights Examiner, Field Editor of Guns Magazine

"Essential Liberty, by author Rob Olive, tackles our greatest fears: The widespread prohibition and subsequent confiscation of firearms from law-abiding citizens, and the resulting moral, ethical, and constitutional crises. This isn't just about guns, it's about civil liberties, families, friendships, and abuses of power. I highly recommend Essential Liberty; this one is a "must read" for Second Amendment advocates and political fence sitters alike." --Keith Wood, Host of the National Rifle Association's "Bullshooters" Blog

"Consider Essential Liberty required reading for anyone who knows how fragile liberty is and how worthy it is of fighting for. It is, indeed, worth dying for and that implies, of course, that it is worth killing for. And that, perhaps, makes this book even more required reading for those who would undermine our liberty. If you liked John Ross's Unintended Consequences and the Matthew Bracken Enemies Foreign and Domestic trilogy, you will no doubt find Essential Liberty impossible to put down."--Kurt Hofmann, "Armed and Safe" Blog, Columnist - Gun Rights Examiner
