BORN OF NECESSITY
The Incredible Plan to
Save our Nation
Oak Ridge Publishing (280 pp.)
January 15, 2012
A covert organization's next step after eliminating a key player in an anti-government association is the removal of the U.S. president from office in Boschi's thrilling sequel to Conceived in Liberty (2011).
The Dozen—a group of wealthy men recruited to bankroll the president's election in an effort to control the government—is struggling to investigate a member's assassination and the loss of a considerable amount of money. Meanwhile, the New Wave Patriots enlist Roland Southfield, the man behind the aforementioned mission, to make certain someone new is behind the desk in the Oval Office. Roland pools his resources, aided by Sharon,
a former lover who works at the company once owned by a man Roland helped kill. Boschi's novel, which picks up where his previous title left off, presents much of the narrative by way of characters' dialogue. It's a somewhat unusual but quite effective approach, as it amply details the plot and advances the story. This choice functions thematically as well, the implication being that a constant exchange of information is more powerful than any weapon. The author enhances the novel with such nuances as an elusive mastermind (Penny, whom Roland has never met), tactical components known as "the magic potion and "the courier" and a double agent among the Patriots. The juiciest parts deal with Roland and Sharon, whose rekindling of their past romance is burdened by the fact that Sharon remains in the dark about Roland.
A political thriller driven by characters armed with knowledge.
"Just finished reading it. Wow, what a great book. Loved every page of it. I read a lot of books kind of like this and this one ranks up there at the top. It was good how it built up to the ending. I kept waiting for something to happen to ruin the plan and it didn't.
Of your 3 books this one is the one I enjoyed the most. Really a fun book for me to read."
