An intense political thriller, The Hornbrook Prophecy poses an all-too-plausible question: What would happen if the US government suddenly went bankrupt? Protagonist Henley Hornbrook, an independent US Senator from Washington, fights against unscrupulous President Winston Dillard until a nationwide tax revolt threatens to plunge the country into chaos. As tensions escalate, the power-hungry President blames Hornbrook for the national crisis. Hornbrook, his aide, former Special Forces Major Eagle McCall, and their neighbors soon find the sanctuary of their quiet rural valley homes shattered, and their very lives at risk, at the hands of an angry, violent, mob army.
A panicked President Dillard escalates the calamity with desperate executive orders, pushing the teetering democracy to the brink of collapse. But when a dramatic bipartisan twist thrusts him suddenly and reluctantly into the White House, Hornbrook unveils a stunning plan that will forever change the nation and preserve its destiny.
In this taut, tense, uncompromising novel of suspense, author Robert V. Wickes deftly blurs the lines between fiction and reality leaving readers to wonder whether The Hornbrook Prophecy is fiction, or prediction. From its ominous Prologue set in ancient Rome to the shocking final scenes in the nation's capital, The Hornbrook Prophecy reveals an uncomfortably and terrifyingly-real plot that will leave readers captivated until the final, explosive pages.
