Book Description

THE BLACK VAULT (or Black Safe) in spy slang: "secret funds, obtained by illicit means, used for the purpose of conducting black operations."

DESCRIPTION: In the 1930s a group of wealthy industrialists plotted to overthrow President Franklin D. Roosevelt and replace him with a puppet dictator. The coup failed because of moral reservations of a single man.

Can one man stop a conspiracy to overthrow the current-day President?

Find out in this timely thriller by the author of Wikijustice, and Agents of Change.

HISTORICAL CONTEXT:

Following the Great Depression of 1929, America found herself at a precipice. Only a series of drastic socio-economic changes could ensure stability and return to prosperity.

Franklin D Roosevelt spearheaded the necessary Change, yet within a few short years wealthy industrialists and politicians plotted to overthrow the President. They formed the American Liberty League (ALL), a group dedicated to protecting the members' wealth and privileges through whatever means necessary, including a coup.

The ALL members were afraid of the President's nationalization and Social Security plans, which they considered dangerous to their interests. They plotted to replace FDR with a puppet dictator who would serve their interests. 500,000 soldiers stood by, awaiting orders to storm Washington.

The United States was about to become a fascist dictatorship when one man saw right from wrong, and his moral reservations averted the coup.

The conspiracy was stopped, yet no one associated with the coup was ever held accountable.

Were the plans of the wealthy aristocracy shelved for ever? The old truism comes to life in THE BLACK VAULT: History repeats itself...

From the master of the unexpected, the author of Agents of Change, WikiJustice, and The Fifth Internationale.

Inspiration and Historical Context

THE BLACK VAULT is set today, but was inspired by historical events, and history, as the saying goes, likes to repeat itself...

Jack King has a talent for feeling the pulse of our nation and reminding us that history often repeats itself. The irony is that, as we travel down familiar paths, the lessons that should have been learned are all too easily ignored due to the compelling argument that "Things are different this time."

The Great Depression required new approaches to solving America's fiscal crisis.
Would it be the untried socialistic policies of Franklin D. Roosevelt or those of the fascist leaning American Liberty League (ALL), membered by wealthy industrialists and politicos determined to wrest control of the country by any means necessary?

The Black Vault, controlled by the CIA, was one possible route. It held the power to decide the direction that our country would travel.

One man saw the looming crisis. One man took the necessary steps to avert a national disaster. One man saved the Republic

As you turn the pages of The Black Vault, the parallels to the 2112 election are inescapable. The Supreme Court's "Citizens United" decision has showered billions of dollars into the current political races.

Has the vault door been opened? Who is the man that can save our Republic this time?

If you're looking for insight into the outcome of the 2112 election, you need to look no further than The Black Vault. It is a must read.

Sounded promising BUT.....Big gaps in the story logic. Storyline language was juvenile.
