2013-01-27 09:15:47 - Outskirts Press announces the latest highly anticipated action and adventure fiction from New York, NY, author Bernard Jacobs.
Denver, CO, and New York, NY - Outskirts Press, Inc. has published The Plan by Bernard Jacobs. The author's most recent book to date is a 5.5 x 8.5 paperback in the action and adventure fiction category and is available worldwide on book retailer websites such as Amazon and Barnes & Noble. The webpage at www.outskirtspress.com/theplan was launched simultaneously with the book's publication.
The Plan is a political thriller based on actual current historical events that suggest the near future. The writer offers a unique approach to a likely confrontation between the state driven forces of Western Christianity and Islam.
The U.S. economy of 2015 remains mired in a cycle of debt and decline. President Winters sets out
to acquire the financial resources necessary to restore the United States to its post WWII preeminence. He theorizes that a global enemy - a foreign enemy - a scapegoat - Islam, more than a world war, will drive massive foreign investment to the safety of U.S. treasury bills. In a radicalized world of the President's making, taunted Islamic expatriates demonstrate violently against their European hosts. A threatened Iran seeks untraditional alliances. A nuclear-armed Pakistan encourages Israel to consider a multiple first strike. Duplicitous Egyptians advance Sharia law as they vie for regional power. Traditional political alliances crumble, new leaders emerge. Outgoing rulers follow their personal wealth to the safety of the United States. Foreign investment swells America's covers - all in reaction to the President's nefarious intrusions.
The President’s trusted confidant, Col. Graham, the hero of The Plan, struggles to maintain his marriage as the world teeters on the verge of a modern Crusade. Believing confrontation between Islam and Christianity to be inevitable, Graham dutifully supports the President’s plan to protect Western civilization from the global epidemic of Islamic immigration. On the cusp of a universal cataclysm, the President skillfully refines his plan in face of the restrictive actions of Congress. The President and Colonel’s personal passions inflame and cool, as do their political fortunes. In the end, their uniquely similar loves survive, as does the world.
It is important to note that although radicalized Islam is an essential component of the story, The Plan does not debase Islam.
286 pages in length, The Plan is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the action and adventure fiction category. With U.S. wholesale distribution through Ingram and Baker & Taylor, and pervasive online availability through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and elsewhere, The Plan meets consumer demand through both retail and library markets with a suggested retail price of $14.95.
Additionally, The Plan can be ordered by retailers or wholesalers for the maximum trade discount price set by the author in quantities of ten or more from the Outskirts Press Direct bookstore at www.outskirtspress.com/bookstore.
