Local Prineville author D.S. Edwards has just released the novel Collective Retribution. Considered a political thriller, the story takes the reader through twists and turns from Washington D.C. to Austin Texas to Prineville and Seneca, Oregon.
What happens when everything America depends on for everyday life is suddenly taken away? No phones, no electricity, no automobiles. What will tomorrow bring? What will you eat? How will you get water? What will happen as your hunger and desperation grow? Will you turn against your neighbors, your friends? Or will you work together to face the deadly challenges of everyday life?
The United States is a nation on the brink of collapse. With high unemployment, religious extremism, partisan politics and civil unrest, mixed with the uncertainty of the global financial markets, it’s just a matter of time before it all comes crashing down. Some countries are poised, troops at the ready, waiting for this day and the opportunity to seize it all.
Levi Nirschell, family man, rancher, patriot and NSA operative, has devoted his life to the service of his country. He has spilled his own blood for the cause of liberty and the protection of the innocent. Now his nation calls on him yet again for its salvation. This time it’s different, this time it’s not just his life that’s at stake. This time it may cost him everything he holds dear.
Collective Retribution is a prophetic look at the coming fall of the United States and those who will be the catalyst in bringing about her destruction. Who will survive? Will America be rebuilt and return to her former glory? Or will she turn into something quite different than the Founding Fathers dreamed of? Something ugly-something evil.
Richard Mack, former sheriff, Graham County, Arizona; founder, Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association says, “A terrorist strike, a nation nearly erased, a government out of control, a heroic revolution—Collective Retribution is a dramatic, action-packed thrill ride that seems ripped from future headlines. A haunting and unforgettable read—I highly recommend it to anyone who longs for the America we once knew and can still be.”
D.S. Edwards has lived in Eastern Oregon his entire life and currently resides on a small ranch with his family. His neighbors include a large herd of deer and elk. Most of his free time is spent in the great outdoors, travelling, photographing wildlife, fishing, camping and hunting. While this novel draws on his life experience as a rural American resident, patriot, rancher and American Historian, he says it is hopefully just a work of fiction, and not a prophetic insight.
