STATE OF REBELLION: A runaway federal government! Western states in revolt! Martial law in Sacramento! America in a State of Rebellion!
"Had the gallows knot been placed to the side, behind the ear,Richard McFarland's neck would have snapped, delivering a swift death. As it was, the young California National Guard lieutenant twisted and convulsed for a long, agonizing two minutes before he died."
California is on the brink of secession, and those who oppose this drastic political maneuver are turning up dead. Federal Agent Nicole Bentley is sent to discover what she can about the movement and meets up with Assemblyman and National Guard JAG officer Daniel Rawlings, a man whose commitment to his country runs deep in his blood.
As Colonel Pug Connor, working under the direction of the President of the United States, seeks to root out the leaders of the Western Patriot Movement--a military cadre with a chip on its shoulder--Nicole and Dan find themselves literally in the crossfire. Can they end the dispute between the various factions before they all end up martyrs for the cause?
A new president! A hijacked civilian airliner! Eight minutes to decide! Domestic terrorism brings America to a state of Uncivil Liberties!
"Shoot down a civilian airliner? That's not an option, Admiral."
"I'm sorry, Mr. President, but I believe it's your only option."
Moments after taking office, United States president Clay Cumberland faces a decision no one should have to make, and a civilian airliner is shot down to protect the American people from a new wave of domestic terrorism. Fearing the loss of countless more lives, Colonel Pug Connor
plunges into the fray, determined to root out the terrorists and bring peace back to the country he loves and has sworn to defend. He finds a welcome ally--and a personal interest--in Senator Rachel McKenzie, a woman who feels the call to patriotism just as strongly. But when the
terrorists are Americans themselves, determined to bring the nation into subjugation, Pug faces his biggest challenge of all, with stakes higher than ever.
TO FAITHFULLY EXECUTE:
Election Day is looming and the fate of a united America lies in the hands of its citizens. States are threatening to secede, politicians have their own agendas, and as rumors of treason rumble throughout the land, Pug Connor has a decision to make. He can continue to serve the country he loves and watch it break apart, or he can take matters into his own hands and change the course of history. He hates the man he is forced to become, but with stakes this high, he forges on, regardless
the cost. His growing love for Senator Rachel McKenzie--and his fear regarding the possible loss of her respect--make his decisions much harder.
Pug's deputy director, Carlos Castro, faces no such conflict. He fully understands his nature: he is a stone-cold, instinctive killer, single-handedly seeking to rid the world of evil one terrorist at a time.
To Faithfully Execute questions the right of the government to interfere in the lives of citizens and asks, what would you do to preserve your freedom when it's threatened? The answer will surprise you as Gordon Ryan presents the third installment in the Pug Connor series.
