SATIRICAL, STINGING, AND TIMELY DYSTOPIAN THRILLER
American Judas is a dark and fast-paced story of an alternate history where religious extremists have turned America into a “Christian nation.” Along with the disintegration of women’s rights, alcohol, drugs, and travel outside of the country have all been deemed illegal.
A bloodless religious coup turns the American dream into an American nightmare where dissenters are jailed. Religious right wingers rule the land, and those who resist the oppressive theocracy are forced into reeducation camps until they repent or disappear. A young Jewish-Gentile couple desperately navigates the tyrannical new regime by remaining invisible. But after a coworker outs Seth Ginsberg for secretly practicing Judaism, the rising political aide and his feisty wife are left with menacing options, trapped between soul-crushing internment in a Savior Camp or a rugged race for the Mexican border. This timely dystopian thriller will keep readers turning pages and leave them afraid, angry, and thoughtful about America in the 21st Century.
