Fresh Fiction Review

Liberty's Last Stand
Stephen Coonts

Reviewed by Shellie Surles
Posted August 15, 2016

Thriller Political

The United States is attacked by terrorist in four separate incidents. Over a hundred and forty people are killed. So when the President declares Martial Law and suspends Habeas Corpus CIA Director Jake Grafton refuses to go along with him. Jake suspects the President has more nefarious plans than just protecting the American people. He believes the President is planning to become a dictator and fundamentally change America to fit his own personal agenda.

Jake is proved correct as he and others who disagree with the President are placed in detention camps. Reporters are arrested on air, government officials disappear and finally when the President suspends the second amendment Texas votes to succeed. Now the President is truly upset and orders an attack on Texas. A civil war appears to be on the horizon.

LIBERTY'S LAST STAND is an excellent book. After reading the first chapter I was calling everyone I know and telling them to get the book. I wasn't disappointed either. Even though Jake Grafton is Stephen Coonts main character, I feel like the star of this book was the American people. The determination not to be ruled by a tyrant and their strength under fire appeared to be accurate to me. The true American heart. I could see things going the way described if any President behaved as the one in the book.

Action, is an understatement and the calculations by the leaders on both sides in LIBERTY'S LAST STAND make for an great read. You're not going to want to put this book down so schedule some time to read it. Stephen Coonts paints the picture of an America that will never be the same and neither will you.
