The Foulks Rebellion
In the face of blatant corruption in the White House, the President and Vice President are re-elected by the lowest voter turnout in history. The country is erupting into chaos. One man stands between the crazed ambitions of the Vice President and total anarchy. Edwin Foulks, a strange and gifted figure, risks his life and the life of a courageous Congressman in a wild scheme to save the nation. More
On a deserted road in Utah, beautiful Assistant US Attorney Viola Ferrari is savagely murdered on her way to investigate illegal mind-control experiments at an Army base. In Chicago, Ferrari’s supervisor, consumed with guilt and terrified of reprisals by federal agents, commits suicide. A convicted felon, imprisoned for involvement in mind-control research for the nation’s largest communications network, vanishes. Trust in government has badly eroded. In the face of nationwide outrage and evidence of blatant corruption, President Sol Burligame and his pit bull of a Vice President, Billy Hellman, are re-elected by the lowest voter turnout in the nation’s history. Nobody can explain why people have stopped voting. Seven-term Congressman Victor Sligo joins high-level government officials at Independence Hall to take steps to bring down the government. Sligo’s wife Nel, among the smartest and toughest women in the pages of literature, joins the struggle. She is determined to find Ferrari’s killer. Into this scenario comes unassuming Edwin Foulks, a man able to see directly into the heart of every person he encounters. Foulks flies an incendiary banner across the city: “Taking over the government. Go to Rebellion.com.” Sligo and Foulks endure a desperate cross-country escape from the FBI, Homeland Security, and a cheering nation on the verge of a meltdown. Together they conspire to fulfill Edwin Foulks’ unthinkable dream – to restore ordinary human compassion to the American political landscape, a conspiracy in which extraordinary women will rise to fight the men in power in Washington, D.C. Crashing the Presidential Inauguration, they carry out a desperate plan to redirect the government back to the intentions of the Founding Fathers. Part social satire, part nightmare, THE FOULKS REBELLION envisions a scenario of corruption at the highest levels of government that readers will find both compelling and frightening.
