Times of Trouble is my 6th novel.
Thirty years in the future, the U.S. government has turned into a tyranny as the EPA and TSA grow with ever more power.
the main character, tells his story from first person point of view.
His work with the FBI involves mostly cyber terrorism and actual cases
of potential real world terrorism. Eventually, his wife gives birth to
their third child, who has Down's Syndrome, which does not please the
U.S. Health Administration because there are rules and regulations
set-up in cases like these to prevent "genetic freaks" as they like to
call them, from sucking up a lot of Health Admin money. Because the
Atwoods are born again Christians, they never considered aborting the
baby, so now the Health people have to take him away to deal with the
problem later.
Meanwhile, the Secret Service decides to recruit
Brian to be the personal agent of the President of the United States,
David Collins, due to his great work stopping a terrorist plot that
would've involved Offutt Air Force Base. Brian's faith is tested every
day as he deals with a man that has no morals from what Brian can see,
and is tested even more when his wife finds out that she's dying from a
fast growing form of breast cancer. Trouble in the rest of the world
pits the U.S. against Israel as that country attempts to defend itself
from attack.
When the re-election of Collins doesn't turn out the
way he wanted it, he and his people declare the election nullified
because of supposed "irregularities" with the ballots. Collins claims
that the new President-elect may take the seat sometime in the middle of
next year, if everything looks to be sorted out. Collins purges his
staff of what he considers unloyal people, including Brian. At the same
time, Brian loses his wife, but regains the son he thought he had lost.
moves back to his family home in Nebraska, where we follow what
happens as the country slowly falls apart. Events play out as Brian and
his family sees the End Times approach.
