In December’s Soldiers by Marvin Tyson, events unfolding in Macau, Kurdistan, the snow-covered top of Pike’s Peak, and even to the halls of government in Washington D.C. are threatening the very fabric of the United States. The people of Texas have spoken and now in two short months the newly formed Republic of Texas will be a sovereign nation. But that doesn’t sit well with many. A threatening faction of unscrupulous U.S. political leaders - including an ex-president and members of the Chinese underworld - want to corner and control the global oil market. One way to do this is to put the Republic of Texas and the United States at odds in an attempt to get the Federal government to delay the secession by any means, including military force if necessary. In the end, it comes down to a very small group of Texas patriots, an ex-CIA agent and now a rancher’s wife, an ex-hooker from Washington, and three tough military veterans that somehow must work together to prevent the possible conflict, and protect Texas and the United States from a total collapse of the world’s economy. If they can just live long enough to get it done…
I thoroughly enjoyed this story. It has it all; adventure, political intrigue, lies, danger, conspiracies, and death. The author has put together a superb cast of characters, particularly the little band of Texans that want so much to be a free country, and of course the corrupt evil politicians that will stop at nothing to further their own agenda. The plot is a thrill ride from start to finish, keeping the reader wanting to turn the page to see what comes next. I can see a series of stories about the new Republic of Texas as they continue to struggle to find their place in the world order. Well done. A very good book.
