In a revolutionary America at the edge of our imagination, two men face off in a struggle for the future. On one side is Lando, a twenty-something urban guerilla whose obsession with saving the country drives his Army of the Republic deeper into a violent campaign of bombing and assassination. On the other side is James Sands, a billionaire entrepreneur so determined to preserve his privileges that he unwittingly hires death squads to hunt down and murder his own family. Against the backdrop of mass demonstrations and corporate armies, this thrilling kaleidoscopic novel explores the deeper issues of love, family, and lethal rebellion.
Stuart Cohen talks about his new novel, The Army of the Republic.
"That these 400-plus pages fly by so quickly is a credit to Cohen's plotting and his insight into the paranoid mind. . . . just try resisting the thrilling sequences where tech-savy insurgents plot audacious attacks with a sophistication that Robert Redford would have envied in Three Days of the Condor."--USA Today
"A white-knuckle thrill ride that goes from zero to ninety-nine in the first paragraph and never slows down: Thomas Paine meets Rage Against the Machine."--David Maine, author of The Preservationish and Monster, 1959
"I give my highest recommendation for The Army of the Republic. ... This was one that I could barely put down ... Not only is it educational & thought provoking, it is a fast paced thriller." --Michael Nystrom, Daily Paul, Ron Paul's unofficial site
