A pair of billionaire brothers with unlimited resources, a secret agenda, and no accountability.

Mysterious “peace-keeping forces” that materialize out of nowhere.

Detention camps on the U.S.-Mexican border.

Bungled assassination attempts with untraceable origins.

A reactive Congress, lobbyists bought and paid for, and upheavals at the highest levels of government.

How was it all engineered, and could it happen tomorrow?

Is it fiction or uncomfortable reality?

Read an Excerpt

“What the hell were you thinking?”

“You told me you wanted the guy removed from office,” said Gardiner.

“And I explicitly told you not to try and take him out. Did we have a misfire in communication?”

“Not at all. It’s very simple: you give me the mission, and I figure out how to execute it. So to speak. I don’t tell you how to run your business, do I?”

“Have you lost your mind? You can’t kill a sitting Vice President.”

“Why the hell not? They killed Kennedy, and he was President at the time. And they got away with it, too.”

“Those were different times.”

“If everything had gone according to plan, it would have looked like he died from natural causes. The stuff we were using couldn’t be traced, unless you knew to look for it.”

“But everything didn’t go according to plan, did it? You hired some brainless illegal who screwed up the job and brought half the Secret Service down on him. You’d better hope he doesn’t talk.”

“Don’t you worry about that.”

“Here’s the point: we want the guy removed from the picture, but you’ll have to take a different approach.”

“I’m way ahead of you. Even as we speak, Plan B is being developed.”

About the Author
Mark Spivak is an award-winning writer specializing in wine, spirits, food, restaurants and culinary travel. He’s the author of Iconic Spirits: An Intoxicating History and Moonshine Nation: The Art of Creating Cornbread in a Bottle. His first novel, Friend of the Devil, tells the story of America’s most celebrated chef who has cut a deal with Satan for fame and fortune.

Mark is also a political junkie who loves turning his fascination with the seamy underbelly of the American political system into taut, page-turning thrillers. The American Crusade, the story of a devastating terrorist attack and the government’s response, was published in April 2019; Impeachment, a tale of two billionaire brothers who manipulate that system for their own ends, is a sequel that also stands alone as an unusual and compelling story.

  16. Did you ever get stuck anywhere when writing Mark? Like some term or plotline just escaped you?

  17. "Bungled assassination attempts with untraceable origins."

    Honestly, this is starting to sound like a story about the deep state.

  18. "A reactive Congress, lobbyists bought and paid for, and upheavals at the highest levels of government."

    This is the United States, alright.

  19. "How was it all engineered, and could it happen tomorrow?"

    It's already happening. Agenda 21 and 30.

  20. "Is it fiction or uncomfortable reality?"

    It's reality, and Trump has been trying to get us out of the mess we allowed ourselves, through stupidity and apathy, to get into. But the deep state's plandemic is probably resulting in a Biden win, thanks to the fact that the lowest IQ voters, who normally don't bother to vote, will be mailing in their no-stamp required voting ballots by the millions. Yikes. And so we continue the march into the New World Order, post-Trump.

  21. “Have you lost your mind? You can’t kill a sitting Vice President.”

    It depends on the vice president, lol.

  22. I am always interested in learning about new books that I might want to read.
