I am the author of the Jackson Guild Books, an alt-espionage series that begins in the past, September 28, 2009, when Washington is attacked and the government decapitated by a nuclear weapon believed to be planted by terrorists. The operant word here is “believed.” In the story, Guild, a Senate investigator, uncovers the origins of the plot against the government. But there’s a twist. If he unravels the conspiracy he risks setting off a nuclear war. The story of how he becomes a part of an underground working to discover the truth about the attack, while avoiding a catastrophic nuclear exchange, chisels out the series arc, where thieves plunder the Red Cross for precious blood supplies, and Twitter brands them "vampires"; YouTube takes over the news, and Talk Radio babbles about a Second Coming. All of which provides cover for oligarchs who plot the nation's route to their redefinition of American Decomcracy.
