OVERRIDE

The Great Divide

Frank M. Robinson and John Levin

Tor Books

In the hallowed halls of the capital, some who have sworn to preserve our nation's union are secretly plotting its demise ... and they are willing to kill to achieve their goals.

The country has been split into two distinct factions over energy - "the haves" (those states that are fuel self-sufficient) and "the have nots". The inept execution of a flawed foreign policy in the Middle East has resulted in an Arab-backed oil embargo of the United States.

Now the country is in the grips of the most severe winter in years, and rationing has led to unrest and rioting in the streets and certain politicians and business power brokers are ready to make a move.

As masses freeze in Chicago and the northeast, fuel-sufficient sunbelt conspirators seek to separate themselves from the rest of the nation, make their own foreign policy, and govern by their own rules and to do it they will resort to blackmail, bribery, and even murder.

The Constitution is only a stumbling block, and it can be amended.

The United States will be united no more.
