Rude Awakenings - A Novel About America's Shattered Psyche
Written by Keith M. Donaldson
Whatever your political bent---firmly entrenched in an existing party or searching for something new---Rude Awakenings will get you thinking. . .what if?
This latest novel by Keith M. Donaldson describes a country in upheaval, desperate for new ideas. In a nation fleeced by selfish politicians and bereft of pride and purpose, the American voters turn to a new party for presidential representation: Mike Macdonald of the Centrist Party.
The smoke-filled back rooms of American politics feel the winds of change as the Centrists won enough seats in the Senate and House to create a three party system, with no single party holding a majority. They and President Macdonald were focused on financial and social renewal. However, the nuclear bombing of an American city and a diabolical foreign plot to strip the US dollar to third-world status forces Macdonald to put on his poker face and set up an international bluff that has to work.
Rude Awakenings is resplendent in vivid characters, compelling relationships, and financial, military, and Intelligence strategies. The story will invoke your courage, sense of romance, and fervor for outwitting the bad guys.
