I had never actually read the electronic version I sent you several years back. I recently did, and discovered that the copy was TERRIBLE. It was apparently made by scanning the hardcopy, and using OCR, but never proofread.

Anyway, I spent the last several weeks reading it, marking things that needed correcting, and making the corrections. So I now have a very clean electronic version. I'm attaching the PDF and the MOBI format. I don't remember what other format(s) I sent back then, so if there are others you need, let me know and I will get them to you.

Please note that the available software to convert PDF to MOBI is apparently pretty flaky. So while the PDF format is great, the MOBI still contains some goofy line breaks where they shouldn't be. But it's still MUCH better than it was, and easily readable.

Hope all is well.

A modern novel of liberty to rival Rand's Atlas Shrugged...a masterwork." -- Vin Suprynowicz, Las Vegas Review-Journal.

"The most important work of fiction I have read in over a decade."
-- Dr. Edgar Suter, Chairman of Doctors for Integrity in Policy Research

After the repeal of Prohibition, Congress passes an obscure federal gun law, written to promote massive noncompliance and thus give idled Prohibition agents something to do. Three decades later, a boy born into a well-to-do family becomes immersed in shooting sports, and firearms become his lifelong passion. An expert with rifle and pistol who gives free personal protection classes to women, Henry Bowman is just one of the millions of people who comprise America's "gun culture." Because of his upbringing, Henry is sensitized to government's capacity to abuse its power. As years pass, Henry watches continued federal assaults on the gun culture with growing alarm. Concurrently, Henry's adult life intersects with the lives of two very different people: Cindy, a woman whose instincts for self-preservation help her survive virtual slavery inside an organized crime syndicate, and Ray, a lawyer who left the U.S. in 1963 and returns thirty years later. Now near middle age, Henry is alone at a friend's house one night. He uses his skills to thwart an armed break-in only to discover that the assault was not a burglary but a raid. Henry's victims are not street criminals but federal agents, and with mounting horror he listens to the captive survivors describe the operation they were carrying out. With the Ruby Ridge killings and the Waco massacre burned into his memory, Henry knows he has just given himself a death sentence. He faces the law enforcement assets of the entire U.S. Government as the country's future hangs in the balance. Despite the odds, Henry has no intention of becoming a martyr. Henry Bowman is a resourceful man with money, intelligence, and motivation, and he has history on his side.

This author advocates the avoidance of civil violence; an approach that allows the criminal network full sway. They can remove the gold standard but the 2nd Amendment is inviolable.

Back in 1998 I wrote a cooler novel called Five Smooth Stones that predicted 9/11, which still has more predictions to make.  Anybody can download it free at:

Downloaded and started reading at 1 p.m. on Feb 27th, and just finished at 4:20 p.m. on March 10th.

It was good, but didn't live up to my expectations.  Would love to get together with  anyone else who has read this work to discuss...

But not in print, heh heh.

Thank you so much for a copy of this book!  I have wanted to read it for a while, but being poor just couldn't afford it.
