No plaguey rats, no nuclear winter, no meteors demolishing everything we know and love on earth.
No, THIS apocalypse is so much more familiar, and consequently much more affecting: corporate rule, most average people toiling in debt slavery, and drug wars out in the streets.
Into this desolate landscape of the soul comes Dr. Alexander Noon, a brilliant scientist who soon reveals himself to be a ruthless political warrior, and deliver the masses from the evil Powers That Be. Noon is the *anti*-savior, no turning the other cheek for this guy. With his motley crew of supporters he mounts an ingenious and bloody campaign to save the world... NOON style!
This is a long book but it is such a quick read. Zackary Richards is very good at ratcheting up the tension and crafting compelling cliffhangers that just force you to read one more page... one more page...
This fast paced novel, that reads like an Episode of 24, will keep you up until the wee hours as you take a journey into the not so distant future where the country has fallen into ruin. The powers that be (the one percenters) control everything, drugs gangs and violence are rampant and the time has come for someone to take a stand. Will that man be Dr. Noon, a former child prodigy who has contributed so much the the well being of mankind. Will he take a stand? Are his ragtag group of supporters up for the challenges they will face, and most importantly, are Noon's intentions pure?
You'll have to read to find out; but, do so quickly, because I hear a sequel is in the works.
The world was almost destroyed years ago due to a cataclysmic natural disaster, but tragedy was averted at the last minute, thanks to the incredible mind of Dr. Alexander Noon. Since then, he became somewhat of a recluse, shunning the accolades from society, preferring to continue his research into solving other issues facing the world. All of that changed when suddenly, he announces plans that will forever alter the social, political and financial landscape of the entire globe.
Will Dr. Noon's appearance once again offer salvation that battered humanity so desperately craves, or bring more destruction than ever imagined? Find out in this intense, action packed thriller by the incredibly talented Zackary Richards.

Wasn't happy with the ending but the writing style and editing was very good. Not my political leaning but should appeal to some.Published on May 31, 2014 by Poseyanne
I stayed up way, way past an old man's bed time reading this story.
