“Make America Beautiful Again”
by Bo Bancroft
Kirkus calls it “a nimble political satire that should appeal to Americans of every stripe ... reminiscent of books by Christopher Buckley.” Suspected terrorists attack with a pre-dawn bomb spree, baffling law enforcement as the only targets are towering billboards lining the interstates. The laundry list of culprits includes eco-terrorists, a notorious drug cartel and disgruntled outdoor advertising employees. With Georgians on edge, politicians quickly focus on how to manipulate the situation. Caught in the crosshairs are the three adult Worthington siblings. Not only was their outdoor advertising business attacked, the youngest brother, a retired Army demolitions expert, has suspiciously disappeared. So the family enlists his Army buddy to track him down. The web she ultimately uncovers is far more nefarious than terrorists.

Determined to dig up the truth, Redd uncovers a dark global conspiracy with no team at his back -- except one he might find among past friends, old enemies and new allies, if only he can figure out whom to trust.
