The Last Degree
When I began The Last Degree, my debut novel, I set out to fictionalize the workings of secret societies. Endless hours of research later, the story got underneath my skin. I talked myself into accepting New World Order as truth. The same names kept on repeating: Freemasonry, Bilderberg Group, Bohemian Club, Council of Foreign Relations, Trilateral Commission, Illuminati, UN, and Club of Rome. These inner circles are suspected of plotting to take over the world.
Once I combined the research with current events and Biblical prophecy, I magically created a piece of fiction that could pass as prediction. Several months later, more conspiracy continues to fan the flames of my crazy thinking. Does anybody remember Anders Behring Breivik, the Norwegian Freemason who massacred 91 people last summer? Was he acting alone like ... Lee Harvey Oswald? Let's not forget the underground compound of the Denver airport. What's that all about? And then there's HAARP - is it responsible for Japan's 2011 earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear crisis? The timing worked out well for the U.S. auto industry. My new soapbox, the sudden heart attack of 43 year old Andrew Breitbart, has caused major speculation among conservatives. Shortly before his death he claimed to have incriminating tapes on our Commander-in-Chief.

Book Description: The Last Degree
The Last Degree is a fictional account of how the New World Order plays out in modern day. Freemason Supreme Council members accelerate their plans for a one world government. Rory Schanck, the ultimate insider, sabotages the Supreme Council's progress. Once discovered, he's found dead in an alleyway. He leaves his sister a stolen fortune and book of ancient prophecy. Feeling threatened, she opts for underground living.
Chicago Detective Dan O'Leary almost solves the Schanck homicide, but is forced to resign. Instead of living in a quiet retirement, he begins a new career as a survivalist compound specialist. Like his clients, he prepares for a global takeover.
James Martin, an eccentric hermit, is reluctantly used as God's mouthpiece. He and his compound are trained by Dan to fight off New World Order.
The world is divided into ten regions. A shadow government emerges, dictating new laws and eradicating their opposition.
Headlines such as the Norway massacre, the meltdown of the European Union, unscrupulous media, animal die-offs, Middle Eastern unrest, and the United States' shrinking power make the plot relevant to present day. This book is an ode to Birthers, 2012ers, Truthers, Tribulationists, and other conspiracy junkies who enjoy Dan Brown, Jesse Ventura, Brad Meltzer, Glenn Beck, Jerry Jenkins and Tim LaHaye.
