Autumn of the Republic: The Generals of October, 20th Anniversary Edition is an entertaining thriller -- and also important food for thought. As a Constitutional Convention (CON2) Unfolds, across the panoramic backdrop of Washington D.C. in its worst crisis since the Civil War, two young Army officers conduct a murder investigation -- and stumble on a conspiracy by military and corporate leaders to seize the government. Captain David Gordon and Lieutenant Victoria ‘Tory’ Breen investigate the disappearance of a Coast Guard computer expert who knew too much. As their investigations intersect, so do their passions -- but the national crisis cannot wait. Can they stop the plot of the Generals of October, who want to throw out the U.S. Constitution we have known since 1787, and install an entirely new one that means tyranny and injustice for all while corporate profits skyrocket? This is the first major update on Seven Days in May, which was a bestselling novel and blockbuster movie with an all-star cast half a century ago. Dark Cold War paranoia is obsolete -- but, as Oklahoma City 2005 and New York City 9-11 proved, there is no shortage of deadly enemies both inside and outside our nation. If you love intense, brainy thrillers like Seven Days in May, Three Days of the Condor, The Parallax View, or The Lost Constitution, here is a powerful companion story. New Author Preface contains fascinating background details and fascinating info -- more at the author's personal website (johntcullen).
