About this Item

Boards resist opening past 40 degrees; as-new unread. Number line 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2, only -- presumably the second printing. Dated 4/22/98, warmly inscribed to UNLV faculty member Felicia Campbell, and signed "Bill Branon" diagonally to the title page. Felicia Florine Campbell was among the first class of female officers in the U.S. Marine Corps. She founded NOW in Las Vegas and the UNLV Women's Caucus, faced censure from her co-workers in the English Department for filing a lawsuit demanding equal pay for women, organized what is today the UNLV Faculty Alliance, and remains executive director of the Far West Popular Culture Association and editor of The Popular Culture Review. She has taught English at the university for 54 years. Branon's first novel, "Let Us Prey," is something of a legend in book publishing circles. Branon -- Harvard graduate, retired navy dentist and captain -- reports writing the book so his youngest son Mark, imprisoned on Drug War charges, and Mark's prison buddies would have something hard-hitting to read. The prescient novel is about a group of citizens who become so fed up with America's tax and regulatory code that they take to blowing up IRS offices. (The trend doesn't seem to have yet caught on widely, but time will tell.) "A remarkable book . . . It looks like a novel, it reads like a novel . . . but something very real exists between these lines . . . and it is chilling. . . . What happens when escalating taxes and an insatiable bureaucracy threaten the average citizen's financial survival? . . ." Branon sold his self-published paperback version by driving it around Southern California in his old station wagon. Then HarperCollins bought the hardcover rights. . . . Reduced from $27.

About this title


With the middle class on the brink of revolt, Mitch and Ram--professional killers--must steer the course of history away from disaster, in an adventure that takes them from Las Vegas to Baja, California

From Publishers Weekly:

Self-published in 1992, when it made the New York Times "Notable Books of the Year" list, Branon's fast-paced and altogether engrossing debut thriller will most likely achieve bestsellerdom this time out, given the impressive promotional support of a trade publisher. The premise alone--a plan to destroy the IRS by killing its employees and blowing up its centers across the nation--is enough to capture the public imagination, but the well-etched characters should really start word-of-mouth fires. Mitch and Ram, a pair of professional hit men who are a lot craftier than their employers think; Kevin Ball, a rogue priest with shady connections, and the young hitchiker who finds her way into his heart; Rayburn Varki, a libertarian terrorist who directs the IRS strike; a pair of elderly Florida motorists who play a surprisingly significant role in the denouement--they all mingle with a raft of pols, prostitutes and assorted tough guys in this violent and raunchy crowd-pleaser. Authentic technological know-how about weapons of every sort, insights into Vegas gambling and several cynical surprises add to the fun. Likely to be one of the Big Books of 1994. 100,000 first printing; $150,000 ad/promo; BOMC and QPB selection; author tour.
