Sounds like a novel I wrote ten years ago.

It was just a matter of time before it came true.

One of my favorite vignettes in your book was the WWII vet sitting in traffic at the check point who saw the black fritz helmet and decided, "not here."

Ten years ago that was a realistic enough scenario; where an aging warrior who had faced down the SS in western Europe would make one last stand for freedom. Now, even the youngest WWII vets who are still around are most likely at an age where they don't do much driving, and aren't in much of a position to take the desperate action they might have 10 years ago.

I wonder how much the national zeitgeist, and willingness to submit to tyranny is a direct reflection of their dwindling numbers. Even more than that, I wonder how much that figures into the calculations of those who would tyrannize us.

Mr. Bracken’s novels are sounding eerily similar to our current national debate.

If you haven’t read them, you should.
