Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In a revolutionary America at the edge of our imagination, two men face off in a struggle for the future. On one side is Lando, a twenty-something urban guerilla whose obsession with saving the country drives his Army of the Republic deeper into a violent campaign of bombing and assassination. On the other side is James Sands, a billionaire entrepreneur so determined to preserve his privileges that he unwittingly hires death squads to hunt down and murder his own family. Against the backdrop of mass demonstrations and corporate armies, this thrilling kaleidoscopic novel explores the deeper issues of love, family, and lethal rebellion.

Review:

"One of the first works of art with the courage to live up to our historical moment. Brilliant, terrifying, and much too close for comfort." Naomi Klein, author of The Shock Doctrine and No Logo

Review:

"A few people will call [Stuart Archer Cohen's] polemical page-turner treasonous, but it should find plenty of supporters among those who think the country is moving in the wrong direction." Booklist

Review:

"Provocative...this timely, well-written, and very dark novel is a winner. Enthusiastically recommended." Library Journal (starred review)

Review:

"A white-knuckle thrill ride that goes from zero to 99 in the first paragraph and never slows down: Thomas Paine meets Rage Against the Machine." David Maine, author of The Preservationist and Monster 1959

Synopsis:

A war of ideals tears a family and a troubled America apart, in this urgent and provocative political thriller.

Synopsis:

In a corrupt America reeling from an economic collapse, a shadow civil war is gathering.

On one side is James Sands, a billionaire and government crony harassed by civil opposition and armed militants.

Standing against him is Lando, a twenty-something urban guerrilla, who leads the Army of the Republic on a campaign of bombing and assassination in the streets of Seattle. As Lando struggles to save the country, each step he takes drags his group deeper into violence and anarchy.

The Army of the Republic is both a gripping pageturner and a novel of ideas about what it means to live in a democracy.
