For those of us who live in Leavenworth, this fifth installment of the Enos Hobson Leavenworth series is written as a thriller instead of a mystery. When the new administration came into power, they talked about closing Guantanamo and bringing its inmates to several possible places in the United States. Fort Leavenworth was one of them. Many of us became concerned—not about the prisoners being at the US Disciplinary Barracks but for the kinds of people their presence might attract. Dealing with tough prisoners is something our prison systems excel at here; however, Leavenworth would be a very soft target for a terrorist group seeking to spring its friend from jail. The scenario as I have outlined it is not guaranteed to take place; however, it could easily happen. What isn’t talked about much is the fact this town is filled with active, ex, and retired professionals in the military, law enforcement, and prison administration fields. These are highly experienced folks who own guns and know how to use them effectively. Many of them have been highly trained and have real world combat experience. I would like to think they would step forward in our community’s hour of need and that our governing structure would be sensible enough to use their talents. Kansas still holds with some of the old frontier values. For example, to be considered as being deputized, one only need be asked to help by a valid law enforcement officer. I hope this book causes readers to think and not be left feeling helpless.
