Nation of Enemies
From time to time I feature books by other authors. In today's blog post, I'm highlighting a recent release by fellow
International Thriller Writer H.A. Raynes. Give the book a try.
It's all about the genetics. DNA. Black & white.
A decade ago the US government mandated that all citizens be issued biochips containing all of their medical information and an ID number indicating a person's health. Then they made the information public—the implications of which were wide-spread and devastating.
Now on the eve of the 2032 presidential election, the country is deeply divided and on the brink of civil war. But as the two major political parties face off, innocent Americans are dying at the hands of masked terrorists. When the Liberty Party's presidential nominee is assassinated in a highly-coordinated, masterful attack, it sets off a chain of events that will change the course of history and leave America's inalienable rights—life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness—dangling on the precipice of extinction.
"This book was well written and provokes one to the think of the choices we as a society are making that will greatly affect future generations."
"Author H.A. Raynes creates a near futuristic world that is not only plausible, you can feel, hear and taste. It is a masterful web of complex characters whose stories unfold through brilliant dialogue. Within the first few pages the plot took hold with a gripping force that and wouldn’t let go."
"This was an excellent book. Went by extremely fast - couldn't stop reading! The plot is full of suspense and provides a fascinating insight into the potential future of medical technology and its effect on people's lives."
"Nation of Enemies is a tightly wound look into a plausible view of the future of America. Topics being debated today (NSA overreach in surveillance, electronic health records, technology in general, domestic terrorism, refugee screening and more) are woven together to paint a picture of a not too distant future where the concept of what freedom in America really means is tested and defined. The story is told in a the form of an action thriller that keeps you interested and invested from the first page."
About H.A. Raynes
H.A. Raynes was inspired to write NATION OF ENEMIES by a family member who was a Titanic survivor and another who escaped Poland in World War II. Combining lessons from the past with a healthy fear of the modern landscape, this novel was born. A longtime member of Boston’s writing community, she was a finalist in the Massachusetts Screenwriting Competition and has published a short story in the online magazine REDIVIDER. H.A. Raynes has a history of trying anything once (acting, diving out of a plane, white water rafting, and parenting). Writing and raising children seem to have stuck.
