Midnight Black – The Purge (suspense thriller)
“When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men living together in Society, they create for themselves in the course of time a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it.” Frederic Bastiat, French Economist. 1801-1850
In the 5-star suspense thriller, Midnight Black – The Purge examines in frightening detail how Bastiat’s observation becomes the law of the land in a world on the verge of moral and economic collapse.
Fifteen years after imprisonment for murder, former DEA Agent Billy Russell is released on parole 5 years early to a world controlled by autocratic billionaires. Their self-serving economic policies have led to poverty, crime, disease, and rampant drug addiction.
As a condition of his parole, Billy is assigned to a secret government drug enforcement unit whose mission is to eliminate drug dealers without benefit of a trial. When approached by a group planning to overthrow the authoritarian government, Billy joins with them to end the demonic reign of tyranny only to become embroiled in the wildest conspiracy he could have ever imagined.
Eastwood’s writing has been favorably compared to author Lee Child.

“While the author compares this work to author Lee Child’s – Billy Russell, his protagonist, is no Jack Reacher – Billy is better – better developed, more realistic and easier to relate to… put this one at the top of your list.” Jenniereads.com
