What would happen if Japan, China and other countries decided to sell off their U.S. treasury holdings? What if they bail out of the dollar?
And what would all that mean to any of us? Will we see the price of gas and groceries shoot through the roof? What actions might our government take? Will they print still more money?
But what would it be worth? What does that do to our buying power?? How will we survive when it’s not possible to get the things we take for granted every day?
Indivisible, a novel by Troy J. Grice, portrays one scenario of economic collapse. The book starts with the account of treasury official, Mae Lane, being snubbed by the Chinese. They decided they don’t want to play the game by the U.S. rules any more.
As the economy deteriorates, troops are brought home from Iraq and Afghanistan to deal with rioting and enforce martial law. But later in the story the government proves that desperate people do desperate things. It takes an even more drastic and horrifying step as it tries to maintain control.
Could it really happen that way? Would you want to bet it doesn’t? How ready are you for life as we’ve all known it to change forever?
Indivisible brings characters and events together with some intriguing twists. Once you’re a couple of chapters in, you’ll want to keep reading to find out what happens next. You may ask yourself how you’d react if events unfold as Grice lays them out.
Will you be like Vaughn, an average family man, and begin preparing at practically the last minute? Or have you already started preparing for disruptions in the supply of food and gasoline? What about self defense?
Two soldiers, Rollins and Marzan, are a study in contrasts. Their attitudes and actions will make you stop and think. But readers should be gratified by what happens to each soldier as the novel ends.
You may have mixed feelings about how Sheriff Garrity meets his fate. You have to read the whole novel to appreciate who’s involved and what happens to him.
Indivisible is graphic and disturbing in parts. But then reality is, too. You’ll have to decide for yourself how much of Grice’s tale is sensationalism and how much is plausible.
I’m making this novel the DestinySurvival Pick of the Week. I also interviewed Troy Grice on DestinySurvival Radio.
