America's chaotic political scene is the background for Till the Eagle Screams, a new novel by Paul Rawlings, published through Xlibris. It weaves a compelling romantic story with the protests of citizens against a government owned by special interests and bribed politicians, leaving the people with less say in their governing than they had under George III.
By standing up to outside pressure, stalwart Texas sheriff Mike Bonner and his brilliant wife Margie are propelled to leadership by citizens outraged by a corrupt Congress, lobbyists, Wall Street, superbanks and all those driving the greed machine. Also the high court five protecting the demotion of human citizens by massive campaign spending. Many citizens are desperate for new leaders and a new party.
Naturally the forces of greed and power throw enormous, evil forces against the Bonners, who are also wrestling with intimate personal conflicts. As with any new gathering army, the movement is infiltrated by power-hungry plotters with their own agenda. Ready to do murder.
But it also attracts secret funding from a U.K. pop billionaire.
Propelled by erratic twists, surprise turns and refreshing comedy, Till the Eagle Screams adds touching or trenchant portraits of citizens beset by national turmoil. Sometimes heroism and patriotism are not easy. Mike's campaign starts off comically, becomes serious, then turbulent, on the way to scary and grotesque. Typical American politics.
This book will entertain readers while sounding a call to action for everyone, everywhere to uphold their rights. And never lose hope.
Till The Eagle Screams will be featured at the 2011 London Book Fair in London, England, on April 11-13, 2011. For more information on this book, interested parties may log on to http://www.Xlibris.com.
