ATOKA, Tenn. – Rick Ferguson marks his debut in the world of political thrillers with the release of “Preserve and Defend” (published by Xlibris). Released just in time for the US Presidential Elections, this new novel is a terrifying vision of America teetering on the edge of economic collapse and political turmoil.

The United States finds itself in a perilous situation. Years of corrupt leadership, unrestrained and insatiable fiscal policies has pushed the nation to the brink of disaster. An unpopular incumbent president, having fought off a primary challenge, now faces a tough general election when rancher, businessman, philanthropist Carl Wesley threatens his second term.

The third party candidate threatens the two-party system. The incumbent president enters an illegal alliance and puts the nation’s security at risk. Seeking to advance its position in the global order the Islamic Alliance pushes for the restoration of a Caliphate. Israel’s security is threatened when the compromised president proves unfaithful to America’s closest friend.

In this chaos that unfolds, Ferguson crafts a brilliantly orchestrated tale of international politics and the people caught up in the Machiavellian machinations of global superpowers. “Preserve and Defend” is a suspense-driven novel that will keep readers in breathless anticipation for the sequel.
